I have decided to try for jobs with more of a business development angle (sales), rather than a strictly marketing one. I’ve been interviewing a TON the last couple of weeks, and although I have my secret favorites, it’s anyone’s game until someone finally offers me a job.
It’s kind of a life-time strategic plan, because sales is the one experience in the field of marketing that I’m lacking, and… I’m sick of being broke, and I’m sick of not having health insurance, or not knowing where my next paycheck will come from. And, because I have decided it – I’m going to be the best dang salesperson in the world – even if I am a little shy!!!
I think I have finally figured out where I’ve been going wrong in this last decade. Somewhere in the last ten years, I forgot what it means to commit, and now that I remember how and why – I’m not going to let any silly excuses stop me – mine or theirs!
Friends have betrayed me (horribly), and family has done worse – hell, even my body has done some weird things (like losing so much hearing from an ear infection, or passing out from eating fruit, or… insert weird thing here). But somewhere along the line, I let those things matter more than they should. Heartbreaking, yes, earth-shattering? No.
So, I dreamed of a huge earthquake last night… and I think I have figured out why – it’s time to start committing and stop hiding. It is time to stop the B.S.
Care to come with me?
