In this post, I talk through how this past month has gone in my Praxis program and Praxis business partner apprenticeship.

To learn more about my experience in the Praxis program, check out my series of blog post called My Praxis Experience: Monthly Blog Posts.

What I’m Learning…

… in my business partner apprenticeship: 

I recently started working in SalesForce and I learned that there are a million features to this thing! I was able to see an old dashboard and an updated dashboard and I can already see how vast this software is, and it’s amazing!

… in my life in general: I learned that the 194th Pokemon, Wooper, is based on a real creature. It’s called an axolotl. They are super cool looking and “vacuum” their food. You have to see this video to really know how crazy that looks!

What I’m Creating…

… in my business partner apprenticeship: 

Lately I’ve been spending more time on my job description. The layout that my boss recommended is very cool because it isn’t just a ticker box task list. Instead, it is a breakdown of clear results that are expected of me. It’s been challenging since I’ve had to break my old job description mindset a little bit, but it’s been going well so far!

… in my life in general: This month, I spent time creating the last few Excellennial stories, powerpoint slides, and Excel workbooks. I created just over a dozen this month and now I have 21 Excel videos planned and ready to record! 

How I’m Growing…

What have I done this month to grow into the person I seek to be: 

 

This month has been huge for me, in terms of how my relationship with God has grown. I’ve been spending time reading the bible in the mornings now and it’s been a great way to start my day.

Weekly Wednesday Workshop

Each week, we have a Praxis video call with other Praxis participants. We have a speaker and then a closing participant conversation. This is my breakdown of my favorite Praxis Wednesday call this month.

Summary: 

Johnny Roccia is always a super fun person to talk with because he’s a super funny, chipper, family guy who knows a thing or two about sales. (And by a thing or two, I mean, a ton.)

What I learned from her/him: You need to be able to sell yourself back to your company or boss at all points of your stay with that company. Meaning, if you were fired today and told that you can get your job back if you convince them of your value, how would you “sell” yourself back to the company?

What I learned from the exercise:  Johnny had all the participants break into groups and try to “get fired, and sell themselves back to their boss” – it was challenging, and thrilling. It made me realize how much work I’ve put into building my client relationships, taking on a ton off details that my boss doesn’t​ have to think about anymore, and how I manage money safely and swiftly​ every day​.

Quote of the night: All of you are fired, right now, but every one of you can reinterview for your job and I will hire half of you back.
