Gotta Study Up For My Exam! — 9/20/16
Woooooo, it’s only 4 days later and I’m writing again! I’ve pretty much only worked on one thing since I last wrote (besides sending emails) and that’s my Food Protection Manager Certification, yay! I wanted to wait until the bank amount was set up so I could charge the class to the business but that was going to take too long so I just said fuck it and bought it. I did a lot of research in the past month about taking this class because I wanted to take it in person with a teacher. However, because of the scheduling of regular classes and the cost of private ones, I ended up just deciding to do it online. I actually still have to go into a 3rd party testing center because they take this shit fucking seriously (as they should).
So I bought it on Saturday and studied for about an hour and a half. Then I did another 4 hours on Monday and 2 today. I just finished the whole class and it took about 7 hours and 15 minutes which wasn’t bad at all. I scheduled the test for Friday which is super exciting because then I’ll be actually certified to serve people food, wooooo! I also have to get the appropriate permits and business insurance but this is one of the first steps so it’s pretty dope. I’m fairly certain I’ll pass but just in case, wish me luck! :)
I did some other things this week as well. I was connected to a rep at PNC bank for setting up my business bank account so that will be done by the end of the week. Also, last week I transferred the car my parents gave me into my name and then got it inspected on Monday. They gave it to me so I could sell it and put the money towards the business so I’m going to clean it up tomorrow and then post it to cars.com to hopefully sell before the end of the month. I also started researching buying a truck and I can get a pretty good one with around 60,000 miles for a good price so I’m leaning towards that. That’s pretty much all I’ve done for now. I’m going to start working on employee onboarding and training documents soon which I’m sure will be a grand ole time.
Hope everyone had a good start to their week!
