What day is it?
Time goes by so quickly these days.
Um…I’ve never felt like this before but..I feel dumb in my classes this semester. I’m not gonna stress that, I’ll be alright. I need to buy the book, maybe that will help.
I haven’t been doing that well on my marketing job. I guess I got lucky that first week because I haven’t gotten any families to say YES since then. Every day it’s rejection after rejection after rejection.
No, no, no, no, no. I don’t take it personally but It’s getting me down because honestly it’s not worth the gas money I use to drive down there. I’m almost about to give up, but somehow I know I can do it. I’m gonna keep trying.
A few days ago I learned how to stop the families. When you’re trying to get random people to listen to you, you can’t walk with them or run after them. Then they won’t take you seriously, it seems like you are begging. So, you walk up to them, try to make eye contact and give your opening line. If they respond, then you stand tall and tell them you have more information if they follow you.
Yesterday I learned how to get them to follow me back to my main location. That’s where all the brochures and information is. I’ve been told that if they come back with you to the location, then they will most likely say yes.
So…I never could get anyone to go back to the location with me until yesterday when one of the top marketers said, “You have to tell them to follow you and then turn around and walk away. You have to have the confidence that they are going to follow you.”
So…the next time I walked up to a family I got them to stop, I felt great, then I invited them to follow me and I told myself, “They’re going to follow you.” and I turned around and walked away.
THEY FOLLOWED ME!
To be honest once we got back to the location I was so happy I didn’t know what to say to them and I didn’t get the commission but at least I’m getting better.
I would love to be a master salesman. I’m going to try harder.
Oh yeah…Kim’s fiance texted me a couple of days ago telling me that he thinks my book should be released as an audiobook.
I thought that was a great idea so the next day I went to campus to speak with someone in the communications department about using their facilities to record my book. They were very much helpful and one of the professors even offered me a slot on their campus radio station as a DJ.
I can host a weekly show. I can practice my producing skills and expand my portfolio. Plus, it’ll be fun. You never know what could come from this.
Training starts next week.
My jits are fine. My friends are all better than fine and my sister is doing great. My roommates are pretty cool. They’re all Hispanic but I rarely see them since I work so much and by the time I get home they are in bed already.
One night I got back and they were all in the living room smoking out.
“Hey!” I asked them. “Are ya’ll meditating? Can I meditate too?”
They laughed and passed it to me.
All I have in my room is a fouton and a bunch of clothes all over the place. I can’t wait to get a TV and a dresser and a rug to make it more homey but I’m not gonna do that until the chick turns on the internet for me. She promised to when I first moved in and I’m gonna give her one more week before I look for another place to stay for October. I can’t keep living like this.
Not having internet at home makes me feel like I’m going to jail at the end of the day. Since I work evenings and overnight, when I do have time to sleep I’d like to relax and write or chat or read up on my favorite inspirational blogs before I pass out. I don’t like having to go to campus early or sit in Panera Bread all the time.
I WANT MY INTERNET!
Since I don’t have a boyfriend, it is the only thing that relaxes me. Sorry, I’m PMS’ing and I’m cranky because, I must have ADD because I can’t pay attention in class for the entire 3 hours. After an hour I tune out. I can’t help it. I start humming and asking crazy questions just to keep myself awake.
Nothing else happening.
No boyfriend. No sex. Don’t want any either.
I still love working at Denny’s, making people feel good is what I love to do.
Hugs to you all…. Thanks for checking up on me.
