Regina Leaves Live Work Play

with one comment

Today is my last day at Live Work Play. As most of you guys know, I lost my father in December and now I’ve got to simply take some personal time. I’ll be back and forth between Raleigh and Elizabeth City, NC (ugh) for the next month or two. Yes, I’m actually leaving the 2nd coolest job I’ve had since I started really working at 15. The first coolest was working & living at the beach during the summer, can’t beat that in my book. But yes, I’m leaving behind the parties and being in the know of all of Downtown Raleigh and Downtown Durham.

What does that mean? Well, if you want to hang out, you honestly have to get in on my schedule. I’ll be taking a lot of your guys up on your offers for free coffee and free dinner! :p I’ll also be taking that time to really focus on figuring out who I am as a person. What makes Regina happiest? Who the hell am I? Being caught up in my dad’s sickness really had me on a backburner and now it’s my time to shine!

That also means there might be an opening at an amazing company that needs a social media rockstar and an independent thinker with great ideas to further the company’s goals. I learned so much at Live Work Play and wouldn’t trade my time working there for anything. I’m really sorry to go :(

How can you help? Shove book and music recommendations at me. Have coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks with me and tell me what you think my strengths and wea

My World has been turned UPSIDE DOWN

knesses are and how I can improve on them. Have a job that you think I’ll be great for, TELL ME! You don’t even have to have a solution; you can simply give me a hug. I need those as well.

Peace out Live Work Play! On to deal with all the grownup things! I wish you the best in the future!

Connect with me on LinkedIn if we aren’t already connected!

Regina Twine, LLC coming soon??? Social Media Consulting!!

Pain In The Butt….For Real

with 6 comments

SO…

I’ve been in bed since Wednesday. I’m sure at some point in my life, it will be great to spend almost 5 full days in bed…maybe with someone but this was not the case this week. This week, my fear for my job, hurt my health in a major way.

I haven’t been selling as many cars as I’ve wanted/needed to in the past few weeks. November was a hard month for the dealership and for me so I know I have to REALLY be on the top of my game in order to keep my job. I like getting paid and I work hard to try to make sure that I keep getting paid. Well I started feeling sick at the start of December but ignored it. Read the rest of this entry »

A New Roulette…Minus the Boobies.

without comments

SO…

You know Chat Roulette? The place where you can video chat with people or penises? Well, Brazen Careerist just launched it’s own roulette, without the penises. Networking Roulette is a 3 minute chat session with people all over the hot social network, Brazen Careerist. There is no video so you have to hold your own with your words or your chat partner might “next” you. Read the rest of this entry »

Am I Missing Out on LIFE?

with 3 comments

SO…Hi.  Long time no blog. I’ve been composing blog posts in my head but they haven’t made it to the computer yet due to me having like no personal time.

Hey Regina! Quick updates: I found my structure – I got a job! I sell cars. Seriously, I’ve been on the job for a month and I’ve sold 10 cars. It’s a little bit of a rush every time I get a car deal. Read the rest of this entry »

Jessie Spano and I Are So Excited

without comments

SO… It’s almost May and haven’t blogged much because I’ve been so freaking busy. Here’s a recap of my life in JUST the last two weeks: I put in my notice at work. My (not) boyfriend got laid off at his job (Last Tuesday). I’m having a yard sale to sell all my stuff tomorrow. (on a business’s property since I’ve been kicked off my own lawn) The (not) boyfriend has already gotten a job (got an offer today). Same company, different position, and his dream location. (lucky him!!)

The voice in my head is screaming: “WHAT ABOUT ME??? Read the rest of this entry »

I’m having a quarterlife crisis… Part 1

with 4 comments

According to The Conference Board, U.S. Job Satisfaction is at its LOWEST LEVEL in two decades. See the press release  Here
For those under 25, satisfaction dropped 20% from 1987. I’m pretty sure I’ve been dissatisfied with my job since my honeymoon period wore off about a year ago. Why have a stuck around? Money and I can honestly say I’m scared to move on. Today I realized I’m really sick of my damn job.
I work in customer service. People call in to place classified ads with me and my job is to upsell them items that make their ads look better.
I have a freaking Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. What am I doing adding bolds and color backgrounds to ads? I’m not saying that I should be running a marketing department but I am saying I could be doing much better. I’ve asked for more responsibility and was turned down.
I’m pretty much sick & tired of busting my ass and not being happy. This job was not the right one for me but my “panties were in a bunch” about actually getting a full time job right after moving to a new area.
It does teach me a lesson in job satisfaction. What does job satisfaction mean for me?
Job isn’t monotonous – Doing the same thing day in & out and not learning anything is boring.
Having authority over how my work should be done – I should be able to be online as long as I can get my work done.
Obtainable job growth. – I should be able to picture myself in my boss’s position one day.
What does that mean for me? I’m hunting for a job with a company that WANTS me to be satisfied.
My next steps:
• Company Research
• More networking with people who are happy with their jobs
• Reading more blogs about job satisfaction
What does job satisfaction mean to you? And am I crazy for wanting these things?
