Placement and Finding my BP!
Placement is where the curriculum becomes much more customized to the participants. Month 5 focuses more on value propositions that you can make for your potential business partners. Some participants may start this earlier because of certain circumstances, whereas others will begin along with their monthly plan.
1. A breakdown of Google Analytics updates for My Magic Mud.
2. An Excellennial video that focused in on an issue that Mission First Operations told me about in an interview.
The Business Partner!
(Don’t worry, you’ll hear lots more about my business partner in next months blog post. For now, I can say that I have worked for MFO – Mission First Operations – for a week and it has been AMAZING!)
Wait, now everything changes!
We will never be ready, but that’s not a bad thing!
Are you ready to publish that book or a new website? No.
You could still have typos. You could have worded something differently on your last page or second blog post. You might think you have something grand to say but are too scared to share for fear of feedback.
You aren’t “ready” – but you should do it still. You may have something beautiful to give to the world or could even become better from others feedback.
Are you ready to get married or have your first baby? No.
You may find that there are some things you didn’t know about your spouse until after you moved in together. You might not have all the parenting books read by the time the baby arrives.
You aren’t “ready” – but you should do it still. You could be an astounding wife/husband and an excellent parent.
Are you ready for your new job? No.
You might have no idea what you are doing. You may have a slight idea, but don’t know what your new day to day will be. You could do amazing things, but aren’t sure yet where you could make the most significant impact.
You aren’t “ready” – but you should do it still. You could kill it at the new job and expand your knowledge so far beyond your starting point.
Jack explained, “I’ve learned that the best moments of my life have been throwing myself into situations that I’m not 100% prepared for.”
Aly followed up by talking through the benefits of “not being ready” while working for our business partners: “For our BP experience, this can be valuable as there will constantly be things that get in the way of our end goal, resilience is a valuable quality for finding a way through the challenge, learning and growing more (throughout) the process.”
I plan to bring this renewed focus on growth to my day to day life by doing the following:
*Listening to office hours each workday.
*Reading the intro and “work” sections of Mindset by Carol S. Dweck
*Continuing to post one Excellennial video to youtube once per week.
*Finishing a 5 hour program for Google Analytics
*Completing my first proper PDP (Professional Development Plan) for my business partner.
If you are already thinking about applying, then just jump in and apply! It helps you understand the program even more and there is nothing to lose. If you use my Personal Application Link, get accepted and confirm you will begin the program then you will get $100!
