Countdown to 30 Post #12

#TBT to 2011..

Almost 4 years after graduating from college I got my first real job. It was only part time, but that didn’t matter, I felt like I had finally made it!

I had hit the big leagues. More listeners, more buttons, and a lot more at stake. I quickly learned that there was a huge difference between this station, and the one I volunteered at. As someone pointed it out to me, it’s hard to be fired from a job you do for free.

That was a lot of pressure. I was working along side the people I had grown up listening to. Not only that, I was now partly responsible for their success. It was exciting, but also very nerve wracking. So I decided to put everything into that job. I needed to, this was the only career opportunity I had been given since graduating from college in 2007.

That’s when I really started to become a workaholic though. I spent all my free time at the station. I never said no to a shift, which meant that I was always saying no to family and friends.

Work came first, always. No excuses. That served me well career wise, but like I stated at the beginning of this whole countdown to 30, it sent be down the path I’m on now. The path of not having a life outside of the radio station.

I’m slowly working on breaking that habit, but I have a long way to go.
