As I mentioned the other day, I’ve been interviewing entrepreneurs for a class I’m taking.
And, I’ve been trying (attempting at least) to follow my own advice from Prep Talk! The March 13 issue was all about Discovery and I’ve been seeking ways to discover, explore, and learn more things.
(Side note: As I’ve been doing this, I’m realizing that I really don’t have time for any television. My goal of just watching Modern Family and Parenthood has turned into a “no time for any show no matter how great it is” goal.)
When we first received the “Stranger Interviews” assignment… I felt like dropping the class. No way was I going to find strangers and interview them.
Obviously, I stayed in the class and begrudgingly went off in search of DC entrepreneurs.
The experience has been unreal. I am so thankful that I was forced to do this. Not only have I met really fantastic businessmen (politically correct since they’ve all been men so far!), but I’ve learned the great importance of talking and connecting people for advice.
Assuming that you’re not enrolled in the class with me, I still encourage everyone to find someone that you don’t know and meet up with them for advice and networking.
I know, I know… it’s a crazy idea (and seems both impossible and really embarrassing), but it’s not I swear!
You will get SO much out of it, especially for other college students!
So, dig down deep and find your inner-Oprah and, as Nike would say, JUST DO IT.
PS For the record, I fully intend on being the next Oprah #prepareyourselves
