A Week of Many Hats

20 Oct

Ommmmmmmm. Ommmmmmm.

That’s my attempt at actually taking a spare second to relax this week! What a crazy couple of days…I am–once again–ramping up for a business trip this weekend! But this ain’t no car ride through New England–this is a 3-day, big south,  Nashville, Tennessee extravaganza! Or hopefully it will be, if all goes as planned.

All week, I’ve essentially been in charge of making sure all the logistics for this trip are organized and executed. T’s are crossed, I’s are dotted, lines are signed. Basically, this means that since Monday,  I’ve been a travel agent, hotel concierge, National Rental Car associate, catering specialist, PR person, tech wiz, secretary, activity coordinator, professional organizer, personal scheduler, and general question hotline operator. And tomorrow is the day when it all goes down!

Needless to say, I’m a little tense.  This is the biggest project I’ve had to organize at work, and the sheer amount of details seem to reproduce and double over night! I know everyone will make their flights, I know everyone will be staying in their hotels, I know catering will arrive, people will show up, and shows will go on. But the fact that it all swings back to me is a little intimidating!

But if I wasn’t working on all of this, I don’t know what I would be doing. I love to be at the helm of projects, the lady in charge! Plus, this is the perfect opportunity to exhibit all of my Type A personality traits! Organized binder with color coded tabs? Check. Master contact sheet and itemized daily schedule? Check. My job security at the end of this weekend? ….Too soon to tell.
