I was in marketing class, when the teacher said to me, “You are pretty good at this; you should hire yourself out.” I can’t remember anyone saying that to me about work I have done. I am not the expert in marketing, nor have I ever consider working in marketing. It was a compliment; I did admit that outside of the class; I had been doing a lot of research on marketing. I told him I was a “want to be” writer/blogger; marketing is something that is needed for the process of being successful.
In the past, I have taken many business classes. My mother would say, when are you going to use that degree, you earned? A degree does not guarantee you a great job; just an opportunity. Most people these days don’t even work in the field they have a degree. When I was in college, I wanted to be an accountant, however, I stopped when I received a degree in business.
Are you working on a goal?
When you are trying to achieve a goal, it can take you places that you never expect to go. With the current job market being so uncertain, we have to be prepared to think out the box. Sometimes, we have to try different things, do something that we never expect to do. With change comes new opportunities.
