You would think, that as someone with a Communications and Human Ressources Degree I would at least be decent at this whole “marketing” thing. Well, I am not. I am really bad. What really frustrates me is that I am 100% behind the company and the products they sell. Problem: I lack confidence and I take rejection too personally. I really need to work on both in order to make this work. So, I started fighting this problem by asking friends to sit through my presentation and asking them for honest feedback. Very thankful to all of them who did that for me. One of my friends asked me if there was a way for me to make the presentation my own rather then using the one put out by the company. I didn’t think I could. But, I talked to my mentor last night and thank you to the wonders of Mac, I can. Today, I will be making the presentation my own. I am actually very excited about this!
My mentor also suggested I read a book called How to Have Power and Confidence in Dealing with People by Les Giblin. It’s on my list. I got the kindle version and the add-on Audible was only a $1.99 more. I love reading along with audio. I tend to pick up more that way. I’m still in the middle of three other books. When I finish them, I’ll let you know what I thought of them.
I also have another job possibility. The community college I went to has a job opening for a Disability Services Coordinator. An employee that works there let me know about it. Right now it is only open to internal candidates but December 2nd, it opens to the public. I will continue to do what I can to pursue things with Carin University. I know, however, from experience that “in his heart man plans his course, but the Lord directs his steps.” (Prov. 16:9).
