Do you ever stop and think about how your life turned out? My niece asked to interview me for one of humanities classes

In some ways my job does not have a title. I most often refer to my self as a planner. I am in charge of corporate event planning. I started by helping my sister-in-law throw a dinner party. I was unemployed at the time and not ready to go into the field of social work. I was tired of working through the paper work and expectations that the government places upon its workers. I had three months of severance pay so I was not in a rush to take the first job that came along. My brother-in-law is the general manager of a large insurance company. He and his wife had asked several corporate heads and their wives to their home for drinks, appetizers and dinner. A week before the dinner my sister-in-law broke her arm. She was in a panic on how she was going to get a caterer to prepare the meal in such short notice. I told her that I would gladly run the party. The evening was a great success. One of the corporation heads told me that I should be hired on for corporation events planning. I told him I would gladly do that. I thought he was just giving me a compliment and I was accepting it.

A few days later my brother-in-law called me to let me know that the man had been serious and would like me to be hired to coordinate social functions as well as trainings and meetings. I would have an office in my home and would be given a phone line, computer, fax machine and copier. My job would be to coordinate the corporate events planning. Any manager that needed to have arrangements made for a meeting, luncheon, fund raiser or other event would call me with the number of people the type of event, the budget and the date. The rest is up to me to coordinate. I love my job and I am told that I am good at what I do. It is an interesting use of a social work degree.
