You're a marketer now
Even if you don't think you are.
And not the selfish kind. Not the kind that interrupts, steals attention, makes promises then lies. But the kind of marketer that gains trust and earns attention.
It doesn't matter if you work in customer support, in the warehouse, on an airplane, or in a truck; you have ideas and you want them to be heard. You have a story to tell. You want to make something happen. Change something. You either want to grow your influence or do better at your job.
The way is through marketing. But the thing about marketing is that most people and companies are really bad at it. Probably because it requires a certain level of humility and patience. Which are hard to put into practice but can absolutely be learned and acquired.
You're a marketer now. One with a positive attitude and a relentless resolve to think and perform outside of, not only the box but also your comfort zone.
You're a marketer now. One who tests, measures, then continues to work day in and day out. You're highly engaged and persistently curious.
You're a marketer now. One who listens and cares. You do what you do because you love it and you love who you do it for.
