Who is Pam?

I am a hard worker who is passionate about what I do and impatient with inactivity. I am driven and kind. My Myers-Briggs personality type is Mediator (INFP-T) or  Logician (INTP-T), depending on when I take it. I typically get more done in a given time frame than seems humanly possible and, on the outside, it looks organized and planned but, behind the scenes, I tend to sacrifice self-care for getting things done and I spend a lot of time chasing deadlines. These are my top five strengths:

Things You Should Know About Me Before You Consider Applying

I typically consider myself a scatter-brained mastermind. I need my project management software to keep me on track and to manage all my ideas and projects or I’ll spend too much time flitting from task to the next.

I dislike “have to”s – schedules, meetings, and appointments give me anxiety and I tend to be unable to concentrate on the task at hand until every meeting and appointment is checked off for the day. 

I never, never, ever answer my phone unless it is my mom or my kids. I prefer texts, messaging, or email…even Zoom chats are better than phone calls or voice messages.

I tend to have many project going on at one time – with multiple businesses and blogs operating under my corporate umbrella – and I tend to chase ideas and change plans without much warning.

The core values of my business are very important to me and I expect that each member of the team will be onboard with those values and with the mission of the business.

I believe in doing the right thing, treating others with respect and kindness, and expect the same from those around me.

I “have an independence problem” and usually assume that others do, too. This means, I won’t micromanage my team and will probably forget to provide feedback if everything is going smoothly. I expect that you can manage your time and projects without need of a reminder or a push.

My ideal workday is one in which I am uninterrupted and untethered to a schedule full of meetings and appointments, free to work on the vision for the business and on those things that need my contribution.

Ultimately, you will be reporting to Teri, our Director of Operations and she will get you the direction and feedback you need.
