When I first became a store manager for Walmart , I ran a small store with less than 100 employees. I like the store because it offered flexible(灵活的) hours , and it allowed me to work while still taking an active role at home as a wife and mother . The store was even right next to my son’s kindergarten.
After a year , my boss offered me a change to manage a Walmart 40 miles away .it had been a problem store for years . The previous two managers had not been successful . The distance and the larger size of the store would mean much more time and energy from me . the new job would be a great challenge . I told my boss I needed to think about it .
Driving home, my immediate thought was, “No way !” If two men couldn’t run this store ,what made me think I could do it while being a wife and mother ? I had far less experience than either of the two precious managers .
I got home and consulted my husband , who I thought would have the same response as I did . But  he didn’t . He said I should accept the new role , and he offered to do more around the house to help me succeed in it . I called my parents , again hoping that they would talk me out of it . To my shock , they also I should go for it. They said I was exactly what that store needed.
Now , I have been at this Walmat for 10 months . I am proud to say we have changed from being one of the worst stores in our area to one of the best. I am so happy that I said no to my own doubt and yes to a new challenge.
