So Who Am I, Well Accordingly
So, to put it bluntly, trust and passion are my two advantages, with power as the appreciated value. Well, according to “How to Fascinate,” this is an organization that specializes in pinpointing everyone’s attributes and characteristics in a digestible way. In the course of transparency, I have decided to review my score. New York University, here we go.
So “Power” was labeled as my archetype. First and foremost, I’ve never really considered myself one who focuses on power or is focused on control. But never the less, subconsciously, I may have that as a factor in my professional goals. Which I feel is something everyone feels one way or another. I think my “power” trigger stems more from a sense of accountability and ownership than a quest for literal power.
To help digest, below are primary and secondary factors to help better explain me.

Trust: so it looks like “trust” is my primary advantage. Which, of course, looks to me like a positive attribute. In my professional experiences and personal, trust is a quintessential attribute. As a backdrop, trust is imperative to any professional relationship, and anyone can agree to that. But why do I place such high value on it?
Well, that’s easy. Accountability to one’s teammates is a central component of achieving results. Whether that’s producing successful business proposals or creating sales collateral, you name it, I’ve never been in a marketing situation where trusting my teammate wasn’t significant.
Passion: so passion doesn’t necessarily need much introduction. If you’re in a field that you feel “passionate” about, you’ll succeed. I think everyone can agree with that. Putting pen to paper, or “action,” is where the real question lies. Now, I’ve had many projects that’s I’ve been passionate about and many I have not. Focusing on the ones that draw out your creativity and vigor is essential to carving out your career.
I love digital marketing, design, and content creation. But if I narrowed in on my early career prerogative, I’d probably be working in a law firm right now doing business development; not to say that’s bad, but I think it’s safe to say, do whatever “floats your boat.” In the end, it’s going to come down to what motivates you, so whatever that may be, hone in on it and harness it to the career of your choosing.
In the end, you only live once and,
“The world is your oyster.”
That’s my two cents at least….
