Vital Factor Numero Uno for today was:
Arrange 3 face to face meetings with 3 different Resort Spas in Arizona.
Well palies, guess what, I did it. Most the time all I heard was voice machines but I kept at it. I kept calling until I heard a voice. Before I knew it I had a meeting at The Boulders for February! After that one it just got easier. There is something about talking to someone on the phone as opposed to e-mail. People assume too many things in an e-mail. It is more authentic when you can laugh together and hear their distinct voice on the other end.
Rule number one is to just be yourself. It helped that I could look some directors up on Facebook. One director looked like she was my age and had a family so instantly it took the edge off. I have an appointment at the Phoenician and Arizona Biltmore tomorrow. I am very proud of myself.
