Sometimes BRAVE means doing something brand new, sometimes it means doing that thing you’ve been putting off for months.
Every Sunday (or so) I want to post about something BRAVE-ish I’ve done recently – to keep myself accountable to actually DO something AND to remind you being brave is not always lion taming and hang-gliding.
I met with a woman about a job – without knowing any details.
There’s a local business where I know one of the employees. Said employee knew owner was kind of maybe looking to do more social media stuff and online marketing. Said employee gave my resume and talked me up to the owner, who had me come in for a meeting to “talk”.
To see what I could do. To see how we could help each other.
There’s not actually a position open – she could be just looking for a contractor to redo the website or she could be looking to add a full-time marketing director. Who knows?
This is the first time I’ve ever had this kind of meeting/networking/”interview” …. It was super interesting – both to be able to talk about something that I love doing and interests me (online marketing) and to have the freedom to just be myself (instead of trying to fit into the box of whatever the specific position is).
P.S. Of course, because of all of the above it didn’t really work out. I didn’t know what she was looking for so I couldn’t really emphasize or highlight those skills … because she didn’t know what she was looking for and didn’t know what to ask me about. Oh well.
