If your skill set includes a passion for organizing closets for fun, a fantasy for owning a bakery, a penchant for laughter and expertise in business management, working at Royalty Exotic Cars is an ideal place for Maria.
As the office manager, Maria approaches every day knowing that every day will be different. Exotic cars all have their personalities as do the customers who rent them. For Maria, coordinating the effort is a welcomed challenge.
"You learn every day how to be better at what you do," she says. "You make it your passion, loving it."
Maria's background includes employment for Honda, so she knows the automotive industry. But employment in the exotic car field is a new experience, and she embraces it. Problems vary daily. Maria is about two years into her new career.
"I have a job that I love," she says. "I'm learning and everything is working as it should be."
Maria's enjoyment of her job is overtly evident. Customers compliment her on her laughter, enthusiasm and accent.
She loves the beauty and variety of her job, but Maria also appreciates the same variety and enjoyment away from work. Maria like to workout in the gym, and watching movies.
"I'm not planning on leaving Royalty Exotic anytime soon," she says of her future. "But when I decide to do something different, I would like to volunteer to work with animal life preservation around the world."
And maybe one day, another dream will come to fruition. Maria will move to France to learn more about baking and with plans to own her own bakery. And may some of the goods she'll use will arrive directly from the farm she also one day would like to own.
Considering Maria's success at Exotic Royalty, no one doubts it will all happen.
