Alice tells a story to people starting out, whether it be for a new business, first job, or as a simple inspiration. This story was ironically her true career story. Alice went to work for one of the local phone companies right after college. Unfortunately, she also had a crazy Aunt (there’s one in every family) who was always causing trouble with the phone company. Her supervisor had had enough of this woman’s rantings and when she found out Alice was related to her, Alice was fired for the lamest reason of “not moving your wrist when you use the calculator”. Alice was devastated as she had never been fired before. She gathered up her courage and started calling accounting offices to see if there were any openings. There were none at that time. However, one man did say he liked her “phone voice” and needed someone to make cold calls to try to set up demonstration appointments for a new bookkeeping system he had created for small businesses.
Well, it wasn’t exactly what she was hoping for, but she took the job. After she was there a few days the man decided to let her do some of the bookkeeping. After a while he was pleased with her work and told her she had an unusual eye for detail and she should consider learning taxes as the income potential was unlimited. She says “when you are married and 20 years old, unlimited sounds pretty good”. She set out to learn taxes and completed the training faster than the man expected.
She worked for the firm for about 3 years and he decided to retire. He sold her the business, and that is still part of the company she has today. She says “the moral of my story is don’t be afraid to take a job or try something that isn’t exactly your ideal situation, as you never know where it may lead you.” “I went from doing a job of making cold calls and getting hung up on to owning the company.”
