The Launch of Something NEW!

21 01 2007

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog here. I’ve got lots of things going on right now. I recently received a promotion at work. I’ve gone now from assistant department manager to Department manager in a new department. This is a big deal for me. I’ve gone from part time (less than 20 hours a week) to the head of a department in less than 2 years! Granted, it’s retail management however I still think that’s a pretty good jump in that small amount of time. I’m excited to lead a new team and a bit less excited about learning new products. This is 180 degrees from where I was managing before so I have quite a learning curve as far as products go. I think I’m up for the challenge though.

In December the picture in my previous post was published in the Leelanau Blog! This was great exposure for me. I’ve received several nice comments from people and that’s what has brought me to this new post!

Launched last night, I’ve begun work on a new web site. This blog will still be a part of my online presence but now I will be taking some of my photography to the next level. Over the next several months, I’ll be publishing links, commentary and other writings, photos and other tid-bits about Leenanau County at http://www.leelanausand.com/home/. This new venture replaces my old domain at broukiandesigns.com and takes me in a new direction.

My hope has always been to start a business in Leelanau County. I’ve learned that doing so is not necessarily the easiest thing to do here so rather than pour my time, money and effort into a brick and mortar storefront, I am going to start offering some of my photography for sale on line! Stay tuned to this blog to learn how that develops.

The winter has finally arrived I think now for good up here. Many of the inland lakes have frozen over (finally) and we are starting to see the snow actually stick around. This should be a fun winter project. Keep checking back for updates! Thats all for now!
