I love the phrase, ‘Go big or go home.’ I’m drawn to it because it’s exactly the good humored verbal cue that I need to take risks.
Doing this #90DaysToMyDreamJob challenge was a risk, but I’m doing it anyway. Getting married and moving across the country to Arizona where there’s no family or friends is a HUGE risk, but we’re making it happen. Why? Because we’ve learned that to live remarkable lives means we often have to do things that initially feel uncomfortable—sometimes very uncomfortable.
I think I can get even more uncomfy in the #90DaysToMyDreamJob challenge…
A few weeks ago I found on my desk wallet sized prints a very talented photographer had taken of me. These are the photos that I’ve been using on my social media profiles, but since my need is solely digital, I complained to my mother that I didn’t know what to do with the remainder. She joked that I should hand them out to prospective employers.
A light bulb went off. YES! Why not?
This Sunday my fiancé and I are flying to Phoenix for a super short trip. I have about 30 of these photos. I can write on the back simply: #90DaysToMyDreamJob, www.violaminicozzi.com and hand them out to people walking out of the offices of my targeted employers (just typing that idea makes me anxious!) or put them in little envelopes and address them to the Hiring Managers I’ve been hemming and hawing to contact.
What do you think? Is it too off the wall?
Or is it just the ‘go big or go home’ risk I need to take on this trip to Phoenix?
