This week I need to hard sell the most personal brand of all – my own. How does one humbly and authentically submerge another in their own pool of self-promotion? My mechanism is usually humor. Bringing a smile to someone’s face isn’t only about sharing joy. In my case, it is how I introduce people to my personality.
If I could land any job, anywhere, I would stay right here in the incredible city where I took my first breath, Las Vegas. There’s a little company called Zappos that has offices downtown and I would punch a baby in the face to be a part of such a charismatic team of individuals. I might even send Tony Hsieh an email like this one:
Dear Mr. Hsieh,
On a scale of 1-10 how weird am I? I can successfully achieve any number on the scale depending on a variety of factors. This playbuzz quiz, a very reliable source, says I’m insane. Really, I don’t think I’m too weird. Kind of normal. Slightly boring at times. But who knows what people see when they observe me in my natural habitat. I have been a marketing ninja since 2003 and I am currently honing my skills as a social media samurai in the hottest masters program in the country at the University of Florida.
Tony, I want to be a part of your marketing team. Let’s get the obvious reasons out of the way; its one of the coolest work environments in the country. Office space to rival even the hippest Silicon Valley based companies but an unrivaled corporate culture and a true connection to the community? The optimal question is why wouldn’t I want to join the Zappos kingdom. I know Zappos is a place where I could unlock my imagination and achieve enlightened development.
