Officially, Eryn Decker (née Patton) is my right-hand woman at Wendy Brandes Jewelry, but in actuality, she often functions like the boss of me.
As anyone I worked for in my pre-jewelry days in the corporate world can attest, not just anyone can be the boss of me, no matter what the organizational chart says.
However, Eryn is so organized, efficient, results-oriented, and persuasive that she generally gets me to do what she wants — especially when it comes to the company YouTube channel. She was the one who decided we’d be doing a weekly video, and if I try to delay shooting by saying I don’t feel inspired, she’ll assign me a topic. That’s what happened this week. “Do ‘5 things about me in 5 minutes’!” she said with a “Don’t argue with me” attitude. I was like, “Damn, bossy much?!” and got kind of rebellious. That’s why you’ll hear me sassing her in today’s vlog. Vive la résistance!
Feel free to respond to my five facts with five facts about yourselves in the comments either here or on YouTube … but don’t come crying to me if Eryn turns up at your place and forces you to make a video about it.
