Perception

By Ashley

Perception is a concept that has always been at the forefront of my mind. I wish it wasn’t, but it has been a nagging constant in my head.

In the past, it has caused me to be shy, and I have refrained from saying things I should have or speaking my mind.

Attitude is Key.

My summer internship caused me to grow in areas I was not even aware of.  As a college student and one of the youngest employees, I was a little overwhelmed at what to expect.  I wanted to prove to my coworkers, managers, and myself that I had what it took to succeed.  Nevertheless, I lacked real-world experience and the confidence that comes with it.  At the start of my internship, I was not unaware of my strengths and weaknesses, nor was I attentive to my surroundings.  However, through training, feedback from my team, and experiences with customers, I was able to change as a person and grow as a young business professional.

The key component to anything marketing-related is sales. Whether it be strategic marketing, brand management, or even copy-writing, you have to do be able to do one thing– sell.

Sales are not just about selling a product to a consumer. It is selling a belief and an ideology. It is conveying your thoughts on what direction your company should be moving in.
