For part II of my process, my goal is to meet with 10 people near, in or around the area of higher education. I noticed that my December calendar was empty and today I decided to get after it and email for some meetings. I will be traveling to Anderson, Kokomo and downtown to meet with some new people in the business.
Why is this important? Well, for one, these conversations, like the one I had today in Franklin, Indiana invigorated my heart. I heard stories of how this person helped a troubled student move forward with his career plans and get “unstuck” and how he helped the parents relax. Also, these individuals I meet have pretty big hearts and it gets me excitied about the future. So, it is true the networking is working and helping me get closer to my dream and the cause.
