I just got a job offer!
For 2 years(full time consistently, I've worked there off and on since I was 12) I've been working at my moms boarding kennel, I do a lot of grooming since I went to petsmarts grooming school about 3 years ago and then worked for a private grooming salon, when things fell apart(long story, but I was grossly under paid and when I complained they fired me, I wasn't even making enough to cover gas and daycare for my son, so working there was costing me money) there I went to work for my mom. Today I got a message on facebook from a good friend of the family, Rachel also, asking me to call her, I didn't immediately(I was actually concerned because recently one of her clients started coming to me, she's a groomer also) Then my mom text me that she wanted me to call her, I text my mom if she knew why but while I was waiting for her reply Rachel called me and offered me a job. Unfortunately I'm very busy at my moms and really don't have time to take on more responsibility, although I'm sure I could make good money just working a day or 2 a week if I could manage. It's a really good opportunity and I'm sure I would learn a lot, but I also greatly doubt my grooming ability and I'm not sure if I could groom to her standards. She was at the kennel the other week while I was grooming a standard poodle, and while the dog wasn't close to done, maybe she saw something she liked. I'm really torn right now and I'd ideally like to take a day off my moms and work there, but I don't see how I could do that to my mom. I'm honestly torn as to what to do. Right now I work mon-thurs and I alternate Friday and saturdays. So technically I could work on my off friday and saturday(Rachel's is closed on sunday) but then I would only have off one day a week and I'm sure I'd get burnt out fairly quickly.
