I have been meaning to blog all week, and today is the day that something moved me so much, I had to drop everything. I just talked to the marketing person for a company that will be coming to an upcoming show and wanted to know what opportunities were available for them to make a splash.
Unfortunately, with the show in less than two months, I don't have anything that could really help him accomplish everything he wants to do, but I do have some things available that can definitely raise the visibility of the company.
This boy, and I believe he is young enough to be called a boy, told me:
"I am not one to talk highly of myself. I'm not cocky or anything, but I am a marketing genius".
Yes, those are quotes because those were his exact words...and he was serious! I had to get off the phone with him quickly because I was worried about the uncontrollable laughter bubbling up inside me.
People, I think I am good at my job. I think I am smarter and better than the average person in my position. However, this is not an opinion I share with random people, and I have NEVER called myself a genius. Well, I have, but not with a straight face.
I cannot wait to meet the boy onsite. I am putting him on my must-see list for this conference. Stay tuned for that.
