Odd Ways to Fake it Till You Make It
Lack skills? Who cares. You can still do odd things
Jen “Odd” Glantz here! I love hearing from newsletter readers who pop into my inbox sharing how they went after one of these oddball jobs.
Recently, I heard from someone who said this:
“Jen, I want to do something different than my stiff corporate job but I don’t have the skills I need.”
Well, guess what! You’re not alone. So many people studied one thing in college and then went off and did that one thing for 10+ years until they realized - whoaaaaa this job can’t be my life anymore.
I guess I did the opposite.
I majored in poetry and graduated and realized:
What the heck am I going to do now?
So I just did…anything..then a little of everything…and now i’m many things.
