My Wife Just Called. . .

I rarely post twice in one day, but today is an exception.

My wife called to let me know that she just received and accepted a new job. Since being laid off a month ago, she has been working hard to get back into the same industry. All of that work really paid off today.

The package is even better than her last job:

* Annual salary is $55,500
* Annual bonuses of approximately $16,500
* 2,500 shares of company stock
* 401(k) plan
* 2 weeks vacation a year, 10 sick days a year, numerous holidays off (including Christmas to New Years week)
* Company car
* Laptop computer
* Cell phone reimbursement

That is a huge blessing and something I know my wife will enjoy and excel at. She already gets along really well with the managers that she has met at the new company and is excited to get started. Her first day is the 23rd.

  1. wow, that’s really wonderful news. it sounds like, as you said, her hard work paid off. and even more importantly she met with everyone and is excited about the job. it’s one thing to have a great job but being happy always comes first and foremost, so it’s great that she’ll be appreciated and be in a positive situation for herself as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Everyone,

    This is 1MansMoney’s wife. I am very excited to start my job and I love what Lyford said. I have to give all the glory to God. Thank you all for your warm wishes along the way!

  3. That’s excellent news! And, on top of the good news you received from your job, it sounds like you guys are going to be doing just fine, despite the rocky start. Congratulations, and best of luck to you both!

  4. J.Money- Yeah, I couldn’t believe it. I can’t wait for her to get it so we can add it to the net worth spreadsheet.

    Missy- Yes indeed, better than I deserve.
