While Avril Lavigne is off planning her wedding to Chad Kroeger (What? Barf!), I’ve been doing a little of my own planning. Today I went to the Marketo Social Marketing Rockstar Tour. I’m not sure what I intended to actually learn during the short conference, but I left feeling more motivated than educated. Not too bad, Marketo. Though a lot of the speakers’ content didn’t directly apply to my current ventures, it was nice to be surrounded by socially savvy colleagues and I opened my mind to a productive brainstorming session. I’m excited to put some of my ideas into play in the near future, both in my work for Andy and in my personal branding.
After the conference, I reconnected with a couple of friends from college over queso to exchange tales of summer job searching. Hearing my frustrations reflected back from a couple of classmates that I really respect definitely eased the stress I’ve been feeling. It’s okay to not have my dream job yet. It’s okay to try a bunch of things, take something away from the experience, and then move on. It’s okay to be selective when your happiness is on the line. More than anything, I just want to be happy, so that’s where I’m setting my sights.
