“It” meaning what I want to do. I haven’t found the perfect position yet, but I have stumbled upon what really excites me. I cannot believe it has been this long before it really clicked, but now I don’t have a doubt in my mind.
Perfect. I love the fact that my computer doesn’t recognize that word, and just seeing the squiggly red underline is making my brain shoot off lots of fun neurotransmitters. Anyone that has spent much time around me knows that I love the brain. It’s what I studied in college, but more importantly it defines my worldview. Marketing, in some form, is what I’ve done on my own time since my freshman year of college. I’m good at it, and more importantly I can see how and why it works.
Why has it taken me so long for me to “get it?” I think it’s because I hadn’t opened my mind enough. Instead of thinking about what really drives me – where my natural interests are – I had thought about what jobs were out there and what I could see before me. I have known the field of neuromarketing exists, but for some reason I didn’t put the most obvious 2+2 together and think that’s where I wanted to go.
I have no clue if there are neuromarketing/neuroscience/neuroconsulting jobs in Denver, and I’d really like to stay here. I’m going to find a way to make this work.
