NPO President/Founder (Former Employee), Junction City, KS – June 25, 2014
A typical day: Planning and scheduling was done at the beginning of the month and then a few days in between of adjustments. I would monitor our social media, sometimes design graphics for flyers or promotional materials. Making phone calls or answering e-mails from the sponsors and other organizations like mine.
What I learned: I managed every aspect – more... of that organization and I've dealt with everything from defusing anger to banking issues- the greatest lessons come in threes. First: Always think before you speak, Second, Lead as you want followed (never ask anyone to do something that you wouldn't do) and Third, Sleep on every big decision.
Management: I was my own boss, sometimes management was lenient and sometimes management was terrible. Working for myself taught me how to balance my time wisely.
Co-Workers: We were all roller derby girls. Skaters are joined like a sisterhood, so we had our highs and lows like any other family, but that's what we were/are: a family.
Hardest part of the job: Defining when it was time for me to take off the "boss" hat and just be done for the day.
Most enjoyable part of the job: Watching each individual grow as skaters, individuals, and as leaders in the community. – less
