A Brief Note About Our Day Jobs...Er...Former Day Jobs.

You must be wondering, "Wow, three employees within the same company wanting desperately to start their own business and leave their great jobs behind?!" Yeah, exactly. Only, let's just paint a little picture of what we do...er...did at our "great jobs".

A typical day us...

9:00 am (Tanya) - Arrives at office. Hangs coat over chair. Starts computer. Signs onto gchat.

9:35 am (Renee) - Arrives at office. Greets Tanya. Hangs coat over chair. Starts computer. Signs onto gchat.

10:02 am (Chin) - Arrives at office. Greets Tanya and Renee. Hangs coat over chair. Starts computer. Checks Fantasy Football team.

9:15 am - Opens up our CRM system, and for those of you who are lucky enough not to know, CRM means Customer Relationship Management, which basically means a little tool we use to incessantly bug people who know very well who we are and what we sell, but have made the conscious decision years ago that they wanted nothing to do with our software and more specifically, that they wouldn't buy it if it could prove to have found the fountain of youth in its algorithms.

9:21 am (takes a few minutes to load) - Checks CRM email inbox. Empty.

9:35 - 10:00 am - Tanya and Renee chit-chat.

10:00 - 11:35 am - Most productive part of day/Tanya bickers with boss who sits right next to her/Chin and Renee exchange knowing glances amidst the bickering.

11:36 - 12:00 pm - The three discuss where they will go for lunch.

12:00 - 1:00 pm - Lunch.

1:01 - 1:30 pm - gchat each other about start-up plans.

1:31 - 2:00 pm - Work.

2:01 - 2:15 pm - Random break, because we deserve it.

2:16 - 4:00 pm - Solid Work.

4:01 - 5 pm - Chin makes calls/Tanya and Renee do office work out program.
