Just some quick notes on my work background and skills (prior to November 2018) –
Team spirit and mutual development / Promoted to Bell Mobility’s Small Business Sales team in 2013 through organized sit-ins with top performers, coaching with account managers/executives and round-the-clock networking with industry peers, I led a workplace presentation based on the best-selling business novel, “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson. This learning opportunity was offered to team members during a time of many departmental shifts and focused on the recognition and understanding of various personalities and motivations within our environment, an important topic in any evolving, fast-paced industry.
Leading and coordinating others / Selected to work with Bell’s top dealer channel, Preston Mobility for an important account win with the City of Vancouver in August 2015. Every minute of the project was worthwhile – from learning the industry’s technical demands to charging through presentations with confidence and improvisation, meeting and engaging with customers face-to-face and most importantly, training new users in a fun and fearless group setting.
Sales and marketing / After earning a BFA with distinction from the University of Calgary in 2003, Bubbles + Blocks was created, a local business partnership specializing in visual/musical artist training, image consultation and the promotion of original branded content for and within various local establishments. In addition, the business produced clothing, accessories, graphic design work, posters, handbills and ads. Many opportunities were taken to work with other creative entities and all teams sought to contribute towards a fashion-forward, artistic underground revolution in the city of Calgary, Alberta at the time.
Lifetime fitness and happiness progression / Completed first short triathlon on July 27, 2015 (Point Grey Triathlon), which involved the development of an eight-week training program during which sports improvement, diet and nutrition were carefully managed. Participation taught enhanced stress and time management, as well as, how to monitor and evaluate individual and group performance metrics.
THANK YOU FOR READING!
PLEASE ALLOW ME TO RE-INTRODUCE MYSELF,

I am writing today about The Four Agreements. The book is by Don Miguel Ruiz and you can pick up a copy from Amazon for around 8 dollars. A lot of his writing helped me get through the anxiety of having to work with people. It also gave me a directional map on how to treat others, whether they are linked to you on a personal level or if you simply come across them each day at work. I am going to go through some of the main points with you today.
WORDS HAVE POWER – speak with integrity; do not gossip; speak in love.
DON’T TAKE THINGS PERSONALLY – what others do has to do with them, more than you. At best, you can influence and even that is limited. When they say you made them do something, it is only their projection.
DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS – clarify; ask clearly for what you want, don’t assume others will know.
ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST – your best will always change according to health, circumstance and time; forgive yourself if your best is not perfect.
And that’s it!
I hope this brief summary will help you out, even if it’s just making that one step outside of your comfort zone to pursue a new social challenge or to try and wrap your head around why we think and do the things the way we do.
Do you have any other tools, tips or tricks for managing social stress and anxiety?
