If all goes as planned, by the end of 2012 I will be the youngest director at my company!

My VP and I were travelling this week and it gave me the opportunity to discuss some things with her. We are moving forward with the hiring of another manager (because she is fully aware of how my team is running at 110% all the time!). Anyways, she told me that instead of hiring externally for the director, she wants to promote me into it and perhaps send me to some leadership and training courses!

She has started the approval process and we're just waiting on final sign off's! Keep your fingers and toes crossed. It woudl mean an increase in pay (I'm thinking at least 10%) and a larger bonus!

Gosh darn it Marie I almost cried when I read this!

Thanks so much! I really needed the encouragement. I have been doing HORRIBLE in my spending lately. Although the debt hasn't gone up, it hasnt' gone down either (I haven't utilized the extra money from maxing out on my CPP and EI like I should have). I really need to get it together because there are so many things I want to do and I need to be debt free to do them.

I am in the process of writing up the job description for my current job (so we can backfill) so I think that means things will move along sooner rather than later!

You are such an intelligent and hard working woman, and I am so proud you are on this board as a great roll model for other women who doubt themselves. Bex, you will succeed because you do not let anyone tell you that you cannot.
Plan half of that raise to pay back some debts, and the other half for some FUN! You deserve that down time to recharge.

How exciting! I know we shouldn't count our chickens before they hatch, but this does look promising!

The money is awesome - but it's even nice to see how much they appreciate and value you. Sounds like a lot of hard work has just paid off :smileyhappy:
