I've been promoted, and now I'm bored!

I've been promoted to President of the company.  It came with a fat raise and a company vehicle.  The problem is, with all the delegation they have me doing, I'm bored out of my mind!

I have 6 direct reports, 6 department, and I'm struggling to not solve problems for them and do things for them.

I don't know how I'm going to make it through a 6 hour freakin day! 

I'm going to have to take up knitting!  Does anyone else have a boring job?

Im' not.  We are a 10 million dollar business, on the track to make 15 million in 2 more years.  Employees are happy, low turnover and all departments are running smoothly.

Which Hotel chain are you working with?  When DD was at Best Western, she had it like you have right now, low pay, breakfast.  At Hilton, she doesn't do breakfast, just front desk and she is making $15 an hour.
