never underestimate your strength, or overestimate your weakness.
Confidence is not 'they will like me'. Confidence is 'I'll be fine if they don't.'
I embrace living on the edge of strategy and creative
I'm as comfortable crafting insights as I am creating big ideas
I'm a visual thinker AND a good writer
I'm comfortable working with a designer to create my own presentations or whipping them up myself
I manage my own time against deliverables AND am comfortable working as a key team member
I define solutions versus just delivering against them
I'm not afraid to tackle the unknown
I'm great with people at all levels
I'm unfazed by tight deadlines and conflicting priorities and remain calm under pressure
I'm a confident and engaging communicator and presenter
I'm highly organized, with flawless attention to detail
I believe you rise by lifting others
I have a soft heart in a cruel world
I no longer have the patience for meaningless friendships, forced interactions and unnecessary conversations
I snore like a bear
I am sometimes politically incorrect
I can sometimes be rude, arrogant and complain too much
I thought I wanted to be rich...turns out I just wanted to move to Montana and fly fish
I spoil my daughters (total pushover)
Get busy building your dream or someone will hire you to build theirs.
