I’m warming up my handshake and my elevator pitch, because it’s time to mingle! Tonight is the annual holiday party for a dozen or so communication organizations in the San Diego area: the American Marketing Association, the San Diego Ad Club, PRSA, etc.
Over 400 people, any number of whom could be not just interesting contacts, but enormously helpful in getting this new venture of mine off the ground.
I’m a little nervous – do I tell people I still have a FT job? I’ve only had to explain myself to a couple small clients, so I don’t have it down quite yet… and I’m supposed to be the wordsmith! Hope the universe gives me a boost and I can pull off a good impression.
