So back in my Corporate America days at HP, there were lots and lots of different job levels and payscales and bla bla bla and on and on. There was, however, one common thread across the businesses and that was this: You were either an individual contributor or you were a manager.
When you become a manager, your "worth" changes in the working world because you have crossed the barrier between working for someone, to having people work for you. This is a big deal.
Soooooo with that little intro, I'm very proud to say that my husband has crossed the great divide! :) Congrats on your promotion, honey! You ROCK!
P.S. For those who didn't know, we always talk about photography on here, but Kris actually does have a day job too :) Haha. He works for an accounting software consulting company in Irvine (which I find fascinating in and of itself). Kris is the perfect mix between a math brain and an artist. An extremely rare combination. I'm so lucky.
