Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter explains the title of this video and encourages you to take he step of hiring a coach to help you.
Hi, I’m Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter here. Yeah, I know the title of this video is kind of quirky. Let me pronounce it for you. Eh . . . I don’t know. I don’t think so. Or where you sound like you’re being pained in some way.
Now, the source of this idea for this video comes in two parts. One is men have a reputation of never asking for directions. They’ve got to figure it out on their own, right? How many times has this conversation shown up in the popular culture. Guys, don’t ask for directions.
Now, another part of this comes from a good friend of mine, who’s going to be taking a large challenge on. And,over the course of the last few years, he’s been asking me for advice and input that he dissects on his own and figures out which to take in and which not to take it.
When all is said and done, he’s gotten along a lot faster than most people ever do who don’t ask for help . . . And that’s the point. Most of you, when you’re asked about, “How are you doing on your interviews,” respond by saying, “It’s okay. I’m getting some interviews. I’m not sure what’s going wrong.” And you don’t ask for help. You don’t ask for directions. And that’s a huge mistake, because you’ll figure it out eventually, or you’ll accidentally stumble into something and maybe you won’t get the best job that you could have. . . If only you got some coaching. You won’t get the most money you could if only you’d asked for coaching.
When all is said and done, you’re going to stumble into something that’s going to be adequate. Maybe, instead, instead of screwing up, instead of fumbling around, get coaching early. Get the advice early.Get someone in your corner working with you.
Now I do coaching and I’ve done it for many years. I’ve helped people by critiquing their resumes. I’ve prepped them for interviews. There’s a lot of things that I’ve done including helping them sort out what’s important to them, evaluating the next organization, deciding whether or not to accept the next job offer that they get. Instead of trying to do this on your own with your beads of perspiration pouring down your forehead with fear and anxiety, call me. Scheduled time at my website which is, again, TheBigGameHunter.us. Schedule time with me. You can do that.
Book time with me. You know, it’s a fixed rate for a half hour of time. And I’ll get you through the coaching process to make sure that you don’t make mistakes. In addition, if you want coaching throughout the lifecycle, you can hire me in that way. But, at the end of the day, don’t do this by yourself. In this regard. You’re an amateur. I’m the pro. Get the advice from a pro. So, rather than go all the time, get help early.
I’m Jeff Altman. Again, come over to my website, TheBigGameHunter.us. Go exploring. Also connect with me on LinkedIn, linkedin.com/in/TheBigGameHunter.
Have a great day. Take care.
