The First Few Weeks and a Positive Response

I'm starting to get somewhat settled into my new work arrangement now that I'm 3 weeks in :)

I got a really nice text from my friend Paul last night wishing me well and asking how the first few weeks have been.  It got me thinking about how universally positive and supportive people have been when I've shared the news.

Here's a snapshot of almost every conversation I've had with people so far about the change in my career:

Bob:  I'm leaving the company...
Co-Worker/Family Member/Friend:  What?!?
Bob: ...to work with my wife Melissa on her blog business.
Co-Worker/Family/Friend:  Wow!  That's amazing.  Congratulations!

I didn't really know what to expect.  I mean, it sounds pretty strange (even to me) the first few times I said that.

But here I am, working out of my house...with my wife...on her blog.

So far, we've been able to create a clear delineation of work and not get on each other's nerves...too much :)  We've managed to keep the work talk to work hours (roughly 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM), and we even schedule meetings with each other during the day.

The first few weeks have been a mix of learning the ins and outs of Silhouette School, areas where I can contribute immediately, finalizing our finances and insurances, and looking after our kids so that Melissa can wrap up her next book.

I'm sure as the weeks go by, I'll continue to settle in and earn my place in my new company.  After all, I'm now a co-owner :)
