Some things happen for a reason. A few months back I became interested in finding an assistant for the office. I thought of hiring someone. I thought of an intern. I thought, and thought. Weeks went by and I just kept putting it off. The most likely cause of that is my inability to give up control. Having an assistant or intern would mean I would have to let go of some things. Thats not easy. On top of going thru the trouble of hiring someone, I don't live near very many colleges. So my chance of finding an intern was very low.
So one day I had enough. I was about to make a go at it and send out a Twitter and Facebook message to start the process - effectively making the position available. Just as I was about to do that I get an email from a girl who attends a (somewhat) local college and is looking to intern. The first email I ever received asking that. I read it twice. Local? Really? Around here, 40 minutes is local ... and good enough!
So I emailed back immediately .. probably surprising Allison. I was interested as well ... lets meet up.
So we did. We talked for 2hrs. She feels how I feel about photography. To me, that is invaluable. I said yes in my mind before she even knew it.
So welcome, Allison, to what I love to do. I'm 100% confident I chose the right person. And our first order of business? Stopping by Target to grab some office supplies.
And so it begins ...
