Hello, I am not really a new member. I actually have no idea when I joined but it's been years. But I don't think I've ever posted anything before. I'm also not a new mystery shopper. I first started mystery shopping in 2008 after my first child was born and I left my full-time job.
However, I have never really mystery shopped consistently. Other jobs, children, and life events have shaped my path since those first few jobs I tried. I have done shops on and off over the years. I've always kind of kept the option in my back pocket. I kept monitoring emails from companies and occasionally picking up an assignment. I also joined this forum at some point and have checked it from time to time when I needed help or ideas.
Last month I made a decision that I wanted to start mystery shopping more consistently, for a variety of reasons, including the fact that my kids are a little bit older so I can focus on it more, and I need to supplement our income a bit. So I began the process of signing up (or re-signing up) with a lot of companies, and I have used the invaluable resource of all your posts to help me sort of navigate my new path.
I spent several weeks getting myself ready, and this week I've done a mystery shop every day. I feel pretty good about that. They were all pretty easy and fun. I don't know if I'll keep up this pace but I have gained some confidence and look forward to doing more in the future.
I figured I should introduce myself since I've relied so much on your help over the years. Thanks everyone!
