A funny thing happened on the way to becoming a Motoring Advisor

Posted in General with tags , , , , , on November 6, 2012 by minibee62

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here and that seems odd, since now my life is filled with MINIs more than ever before. My life isn’t just filled with MINIs, it IS MINIs, since I became a Motoring Advisor at MINI of Wesley Chapel last March. Being an MA and doing it well requires about 55-60 hours a week at work so free time is tight. But I figure if I back off on Facebook a little and try to post here 3-4 times a week, I’ll be off to a good start. I’m working on the inside now, so I have access to a lot of cool stuff I can share. And my recent purchase of a John Cooper Works Roadster will provide plenty of opportunity for me to share my experiences as I build the next bee.

So if you haven’t been here in awhile because there weren’t any new posts, know that I’m working on it and intend to post here regularly starting now. There’s a lot happening in MINIBee’s world and your invited to motor along with me. I hope you enjoy the ride.

A new year, a new beginning!

Here I sit, looking back on the turmultuous year that has been 2011. The year was filled with personal and professional challenges and some fantastic accomplishments too. Ultimately though, the sudden and unexpected elimination of my position at the St. Petersburg Times, after 26 years of service, took center stage in October and since then I have been focusing on the next chapter of my life.

Now, I’m pleased to tell you the outline for that chapter has been written…in February I will join the new MINI of Wesley Chapel as a Motoring Advisor, converting my love and passion for the MINI into a full-time job. I’m excited by the prospects and the opportunity to work with the leadership at the Morgan Auto Group and at Wesley Chapel, to learn the car biz and also provide an enthusiast’s perspective as we become active members in the community. We’re going to do great things there! If you’re in the area I hope you’ll come by and see us after we open. Don’t forget to ask for MINIBee.

Happy MINI New Year!
