So my father encouraged my to write this post.
On Friday I had my monthly check-in with my boss: how are things going, plans for the future, etc. All went well.
At the end of the meeting, he handed me an envelope. Salary adjustment based on the size of the company and change in the reporting structure. It was a 52% raise.
You read that right. 52%.
I am, to be sure, blown away. That is approximately 1/3 again the amount I was receiving prior to July 15th, my first day. In total, this represents a 82% salary increase since I started my new position in 2016.
To say this is a game changer is trite. This means a whole lot of things- debt reduction, college, even travel - have now changed in their ability to be accomplished.
I am often complaining - and curious - if this is where God really wants me. Turns out at this time, He keeps saying yes, this is the place for now.
52%. Never in my life could I have dreamed this would occur.
