My Life


Have you ever felt like a monkey that does whatever someone tells you to do? Have you ever taped a phone to your head? This is my buddy Parley. One of my best friends who happens to be my coworker. He keeps me sane. The people I am working with are great. They make something that could potentially make one crazy, quite a bit of fun. The rally is coming along. My job description and what I am supposed to do changes just about every day as we try to get ready for this massive event. This week one of our responisibilites on top of coordinating with all the recruiters for the event, we became call monkeys. They asked us to get on the phone and start calling all the donors in the state, thus Paley has a phone taped to his head. I strapped it on there real good. it brought on a pretty good laugh. So I have talked to a lot of people on the phone this week. Mitt has a lot of really old people for supporters. but I have also talked to a lot of really great people that want to come to the event.
I am learning a lot about the world, and how it works. Some of the methods they take aren't always the most effective, but I have learned to respect what they want us to do, and just do it. I think a lot of the business world comes down to people having confidence and acting like they know what they are talking about that. When you do that, it is like almost automatically people respect you and think you know what you are talking about. Have you experienced that it in the business world?
At any rate, things are coming along. This is going to be an experience I will never forget. I am not sure yet if i am in to things enough to go back to Boston. I am also going after a job at a huge luxury vacations/travel company that is based in Seatlle, but they have an office in NYC. check it out.
It is a lot of fun to be here in SLC, I haven't really lived here for like 6 years, so it is fun to be here with my best buddies, and to be close to mom and dad and char (until she takes off on Sunday).
I am headed up to Jackson Hole for Labor Day to go river rafting with some of my friends. I am excited about the rafting, but even more so I am excited to eat a Billy Burger. So there's a bit of an update on my life. Love you all. Check out that is the main website for this fundraiser. SLC is the last of 42 of these going on all over the country the last week of September. Go Mitt.
