3 Benefits Of Being A Film Major

So, I recently graduated college. With an so called “useless” degree.

Yup, I’m freaking film major.

Now, film degrees get a bad rap.

“It’s a dumb degree.”

“It’s useless.”

“What job are you gonna get with that?”

People say these things all the time. And I’m surprised people don’t see the connection — that it baffles me. How can you not see it? It’s right in your face!

Wild.

Benefit Number One

Anyway, first and foremost, if you’re in film, writing, psychology, philosophy, public speaker, actor or humanities lover (like me!) — you’re an communicator.

Putting Pen to Paper is your strength.

Dealing with or influencing people is your strength.

Public Speaking is your strength.

Soft skills are your strength.

And these are the skills you need to obtain any job you want.

What’s the first thing you need to do to get a job?

Write a resume and interview.

Writing and public speaking.

This is the edge you have over other people. You’re an master at these 2 things.

Tech geeks have engineering.

Finance gurus have numbers.

Designers have pencils.

You have communication skills — use them — any and everywhere.

Story time — I remember I took a public speaking class two years ago where we did one speech per class. 10 in total for the whole semester. This was my favorite class, btw.

I aced this class with flying colors. Every speech I hit it out the park.

BOOM – BOOM – BOOM!

And you know who struggled?

The Tech and Finance folks (no disrespect to them).

They were scared. And barely made it through the speeches.

They weren’t built like me — whose had over 10 years of customer service exp, whose been blogging since 2016, whose been acting for more than 4 years).

These are strengths you hone when you’re a film major.

Benefit Number Two 

The most important people in the world, specially in Hollywood, politics, and business are communicators.

Donald Trump goes viral on Twitter – everyday.  140 characters of writing!

Aalexandria Ocasio-Cortez goes viral as well. She’s heating up.

Denzel Washington, Steve Harvey, Tom Cruise, Kevin Hart, Will Smith — you name it, any A list Actor is a super good communicator.

In business, salespeople and marketers drive the growth of the company. Without sales, the company dies, period.  Steve Jobs was probably the most influential people in business in the last two decades and he was a gifted marketer and storyteller.

All these people can communicate extremely, extremely well.

The top people with the most $$$ and influence are the best communicators, period.

Benefit Number Three

Studying acting really helped my mental health.

Before I took improv classes, I was pretty shy (not introverted) but I couldn’t communicate my thoughts and feelings as well as I wanted.

Then, I solved my problem — I found something I was extremely passionate about — improv comedy. I was to communicate clearly and think clearly. To any one.

Which – I think – is extremely underrated today — where we’re living an a fast paced world. And the best, clearest thinkers would be able to stand out from the bunch.

I personally journal my thoughts every day. I even do a video journal as well. And it makes me feel awesome. And I don’t think I would get that feeling if I wasn’t a communicator.

Okay – that’s enough writing for me.

Thanks for reading,

Jamual

P.S. You can follow on Twitter because you love communicating too!

How Trump Keeps His Promises – Positioning Lessons From The President

Can we all agree that newly elected President Trump has mastered marketin’?

Like really – I’ve never seen anyone get so much free press in my damn life. It’s kinda ridiculous.

The man trends on Twitter – non stop.

All major news channels has been broadcastin’ story after story after story bout him since last winter.

People talk bout him in bars, online forums, grocery stores, book stores  – everywhere where you go now somebody has a opinion on President Trump.

It’s, literally, Trump’s world. A Trump whirlwind. And we’re caught up in it.

Point Blank – he has mastered media.

He plays them – mainstream media – like a funky fiddle. Where their only a tool is to expand his message. Nothin’ else.

He discredited them like crazy – crazy. And uses their stories, true or not, as a promotional tool only.

Hell, they all predicted he’ll lose in a landslide to Clinton – ha!

Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 4.42.15 PM.JPG

Remember Nov. 8th?

Wild!

Now, I was thinkin’ how the hell does this man do this?

What’s the core of his self promotion strategy?

… So, after analyzing him, I noticed a bunch a techniques, but the core technique I’ve noticed is his amazin’ brand positioning.

Super tough positioning – is what I call it.

Now, you’re probably thinkin’ – what’s that?

Well, let me break it down –

When companies make a product or provide service, they wanna be first in the market place, so they position themselves as the leader of the market place, by …

  1. Taking hard stances/ opinions in the industry.
  2. And being a total experts on topics in that industry.

For example Starbucks and Howard Schultz, positions themselves as a luxury coffee brand. And are big advocators of the environment (and other progressive issues).

They even have their own lingo and such. And, of course, their logo, clothes, packagin, etc – adds to that.

So when you – the consumer – thinks of coffee, you should instantly think of Starbucks (which most people do anyways).

Cause they’re established, knowledgeable, have premium quality  products (high prices – so they must be good, right?) and have a cool atmosphere in their stores.

That’s exactly what Trump does with all his policy ideas.

When you think of immigration, you think of Trump.

When you think “wall,” you think Trump.

When you think “jobs,” you think Trump.

Even negative words attached to his brand. Such as fascist, racist, sexist. Which didn’t cost him the election at all, apparently.

Personally, I think it toughened up his brand – made it stronger.

Ever since he started campaginin’, he’s taken a super strong stances on a only couple polices. 6 to be exact. Only 6.

Now, did you read what I just wrote?

The guy only has six things he wants to do.

That’s on purpose.

He does this cause it makes his policy ideas easy to say. And for us – the audience – easy to remember.

So, when he pitches his ideas on issues in a speech, he hits them all. And then it becomes attached to his brand.

For example, when he “saved” a thousand Carrier jobs from bein’ shipped elsewhere.

Or meeting with biz leaders. And various CEOs. And even Union leaders.

This adds to the position he’s takin’ – as the “Jobs’ President.”

He repeats this over and over and over again.

His position/mission is to create jobs, jobs, and more jobs in the USA. That’s his goal. And that’s what he wants to happen.

I dunno if he’ll do it. And I have no comment on the man’s personality or anything like that.

But as a communications student, Trump’s mastery of media and lean, focused policies is how he’s able to keep his campaign promises. And his future promises.

The sharp positioning – talkin’ bout hard issues that no one wants to talk bout. And the hammerin’ of it in every speech, tweet, and interview is the foundation.

Cause when you take a strong position you can…

  1. Come out on top as a leader on that topic. And have people follow you.
  2. Or pivot on a issue (if you need too).

This concept is pretty darn important. And is something people flounder with.

A lot of people are too shifty on things. Don’t know their core beliefs. Or what drives them. So they don’t know what position to take. And this makes people lose confidence in you.

So if you can position yourself properly – like Trump does – you can gain ravin’ fans.

Or persuade people to buy from you.

Or get a girl to pass her number to you.

Or become President.

My Favorite Book Of The Year – Gorilla Mindset!

I love books a lot. I read a whole bunch to many to even count, honestly.

I don’t have a set number. I just go to barnes and noble. And read, read, read.

Why?

Cause I love it. I can spend hours in the bookstore. Bouncin’ around from the business section to the humor section to the fiction to the military section. It doesn’t matter I read whatever.

Now, the fact that I read a lot of books causes me to whiz by some. And end up forgettin’ what I read. There’s only a couple authors that sick with me.

Like Elmore Leonard, James Patterson, Raymond, James Cain, Quentin Tarantino, Hemingway, Cormac, or the Coen Brothers. But this year – I’ve found a writer that is super unique…

… And his name is Mike Cernovich.

Now, Mike, to me is cool guy. But to others, he’s a wild Trump supporter on Twitter. He’s also a expert on other things other than politics. Like mindset, juicin’, fitness, travelin’, podcasts, marketin’, making documentaries. The man does everything, pretty much.

I started followin’ Mike earlier this year when Trump was catchin’ heat. And he’s has been super Trump supporter forever. Especially after the hot mic thing happened in October. Mike is a ride or die Trump guy til the end – it seems.

Mike even dropped a book called MAGA MINDSET. Which is awesome! Explains Trump’s rise. And why he has so many supporters – especially in the Rust Belt. Somethin’ I didn’t know what was happenin’.

For example, one reason is the bad trade deals that our government signed. Which pretty much killed factory jobs in the Rust Belt. And shipped them off elsewhere.

That book is quick. And breezy. A+++

I actually bought that one first. Liked that then bought his other book – Danger Play. And then, Gorilla Mindset. Which is the best, to me!

Buildin’ Up My Kindle!

What – So Why Is It The Best?

So, imagine, you’re a young kid. Just graduated H.S. Or College. And confused ’bout what you wanna do in life.

You’re lost. Don’t know what to focus on? Money, finances?

Or even in your mid 20s (like me) and you’re just tryin’ stuff out seein’ if anything will stick. And your self esteem needs a tune – up?

Then… you need to…

…. BUY THIS BOOK! Now!

Why?

Cause this book is awesome.

Wanna get your nutrition, right?

There’s something on that.

Your moolah not lookin’ so good?

Check! Mike’s got it covered!

Mindset techniques that actually work?

Yup, they do. They really do.

And honestly, I’m was like you – totally suspicious. He talks bout mantras and affirmations… And you’re thinkin’…

Is this gonna work? 

Is this dumb?

Answer: Nope, not at all. Works like a charm. Works for everyone. You just gotta do what Mike tells you.

So, how do I use it?

I use mindset exercises at work mostly. I work with drunk people all night, so I need my mindset strong to make it through the night. The exercises really came in handy.  I use it in real time. Real time. Which makes the exercises super actionable.

I just use my simple mantra of – I’m the best!

And then I go to work.

Hell, I even used the techniques on my mom. She had a negative setback recently. And I used reframing techniques to try my best to cheer her up. It actually helped too. And I only read the book twice when that happened. Powerful, powerful stuff.

Overall, Gorilla Mindset greatly, greatly exceeded my expectations. With it I’ve already become healthier. And my mindset skill is bein’ honed. And with a good mindset you can get what you want outta life. Whatever it is that you want.

Hell, look at the the guy that just got elected President. His mindset is strong, strong, strong.

Anyway, so grateful for this book. It has huge chunks of value. Oozes it, actually. It’s amazin’.

You can get it  here.

Bought this right after buyin’ the book. The most actionable self – help book ever, period.

4 Marketing Lessons From The Trump Campaign

*Warning*

This is not a post on his policies. Or how I feel ’bout the man. Just a look at the marketin’ techniques he used over the last year…

… So, Trump won the election… Holy smokes! What an exciting time!

The campaign was a wild time. Mixed with a whole lotta emotion.

As a marketin’ and business student, I was really excited to witness the campaign that came outta Trump’s team. It really was a thing of beauty. And I think he’s a better marketer than Steve Jobs.

Why?

Cause the man was everywhere – online, TV, magazines.

He engulfed everyone. Created a reality distortion field. Where you couldn’t go anywhere without hearin’ his name. Even when you said his name, people would shudder and shake. Or get super pumped. That’s powerful marketin’.

So, I just wanted to take a look at the marketin’ techniques used over and over by him. That maybe you haven’t noticed. And also why he’s using them. Cause there’s a method to the Trump madness.

 LESSON ONE –  Simple Language Is Best

When I first looked up Trump, it wasn’t for anything politics related. It was for a character I created in one of my screenwriting stories for class. The character was obsessed with money and business. And for my research, I would walk over to Barnes Noble to read books on business.

Eventually, I stopped at Trump. Read some books. And used Youtube as a resource.

The first ever interview I watched with Trump really opened my eyes. When I heard him talk, he was usin’ simple language. Like in a Cormac Mccarthy novel. It was amazin’! I flipped out. I’ve never heard of anyone do this in real time. It was so darn blatant too.

Who do you know that talks like Trump? That’s right – no one.

After I found more interviews, I’ve noticed he keep doin’ the same darn thing. And you wanna know what this is? Persuasion. Blatant persuasion.

Advertisers and marketers know that simple language is more powerful than complex words.

Think ’bout music – pop music, for example. The songs use simple words, and catchy hooks to get the people in a trance – liking and remembering the song.

That’s all Trump.

He wants to get his words stuck in your head. And he does it well.

Hell, my grandma isn’t a Trump supporter. And can remember the words he says. Word for word too.

He’s like a walkin’, talkin’ copywritin’ ad, man.

Super powerful technique, crazy powerful.

One Of My Favorite Books!

LESSON TWO – Repetition Is Key

Trump repeats his words – a lot.

This, too, is a technique taken from advertising that no one seems to understand.

Why is he repeating himself?

He’s stupid!

No, he’s not stupid – he’s persuasive. He’s wants you to remember his ideas, by repeating it over and over again.

How did this start?

As soon as human started sellin’ people products and service in newspapers. This was the technique they used. And Trump does this live. In person.

Remember he’s a character. And we’re the audience.

LESSON THREE – Social Media Is The Way

Earlier in the Fall, Trump trended on Twitter for 48 hours! 48 darn hours! Pretty much whole weekend in October – crazy, right?

And he’s been trending a lot lately too. Over and over again. It’s actually kinda tiring.

What’s going on here?

Well, his marketing campaign was focused totally online. Filled with hashtags, fiery tweets, and doing rallies and posting them on Facebook Live.

Clinton? Spent loads and loads of cash on TV ads. But it didn’t help her.

Why?

TV is not a popular media anymore. Social media is. And she didn’t know her to use social media. But he did.

See the above tweet?

This tweet has gone viral. Like his others.

Why?

Not cause they make sense, but they force the news media to cover it. And fact – check him. It creates news. Trump creates news by using Twitter.

And what does this do? Bring him more attention.

And remember marketin’ is  attention, right?

So, this is how he won the election. Attention, attention, attention. All attention pointed at who?

Him. No one else.

This attention helped millions wanna get involved in his campaign. Then go to his rallies. And then to the voting booths. Leading to a Trump win.

LESSON FOUR- Go, Go, Go!

The night before election night. The man did 6 rallies in a row. Hitting a good amount of  much needed swing states. He ended the day at 1 A.M. Geez. That’s crazy…

…This strategy is a interestin’ one.

Basically, the Trump team played offense. Like General Patton in WW 2.

And all he did was attack, attack, attack! 

This was his ground game.

And he did this when everybody said he was gonna lose. Using a bunch of energy – keeping his base always energized. Till the major the upset of 2016 happened – winning the election!  When people said he’s gonna lose! Damn.

Now, there’s whole lotta other stuff to study from Trump’s marketin’. But then, this post will be super long. To me, these are the key ones.

Hopefully you can take away your political bias. And agree with me – that Trump is the a master marketer and salesman. And you can use this to help yourself out. Like grow your business. Or make more sales. Or a job. Or whatever you want.

Cause if Trump became President – Elect off Twitter, then he must be doin’ something, right, right?

Still doin’ Rallies. Crazy.

P.S. I’m on Twitter. Talkin’ marketin’ stuff. It’s fun. Join me!

Why You Should Work in Customer Service — At Least For A Little Bit

(The 3rd business post in two weeks — jeez — I must like this stuff… Anyway, let’s get into it).

Alright, I know you saw the title. And you’re thinking …

Customer service? That sucks!

But wait it isn’t that bad. You just need to find the right place to work.

For example, don’t work at fast food places. That’s a bad decision to make.

Why?

Cause those places have terrible hours, pay their employees horribly, and take too much time — your most valuable asset.

Instead, I highly recommend working in bars and upscale restaurants — if you want some fast cash. And little time investment.

What’s So Freaking Good ‘Bout it?

Reason Number One — Social Skills

Whether you’re a waiter, bartender, or barback, your social skills will improve. I guarantee it. Cause that’s how stuff gets done in this business.

Communication.

If you can’t communicate, you don’t make moolah. And then you die. Cause moolah is oxygen. Well, at least, to me it is.

There’s gonna be times when you’re gonna find yourself talking to two customers, one co worker, a pretty girl. And your boss. All at the same time.

And if you don’t know how to effectively communicate — you’ll perish.

When I first started my job, as a bathroom guy, I would easily talk to 50 – 100 people a night. Passing out paper towels, selling candy, gum and cologne.

It’s high paced, high volume. Wild nights — filled with booze and druggies.

At first, I’ll be honest; I was overwhelmed at the start. Cause the nightlife scene can go really fast. Too freaking fast.

But after a couple months, I got the hang of it. And noticed a major difference in how I interact with people.

I was confident. Chatting everyone up. Guys, girls. You name it…

… Even job interviews became easy for me. Like a lotta times, the interviewer would be more nervous than me.

Seriously, one time, an interviewer was literally shaking his butt off, while he asked me questions off his clipboard.

Across from him, I was calm, cool, and collected…

…That’s the power of 50 – 100 social interactions for 3 days per week. It’s like nothing to me now. Like riding a bike.

So, if your social skills are lacking – customer service jobs are the way to go.

Reason Number Two – Fast Money

Everybody loves moolah, right?

And if they don’t – they’re freaking lying.

Me? I love the dough. Even better is that I love making it fast. That’s the thing with fast food jobs. You’re making cash slow. Slaving away for 40+ hours a week for a 250-dollar check. Waste of time.

I make that in two nights. And have extra cash left over to spend on whatever I want.

Protein shakes, kombucha, shea butter –  stuff that I love.

And the other cool thing, is that if I move, I can definitely get another restaurant job anywhere I go cause they’re pretty much everywhere. 

Reason Number Third — Business Sense

So, I’m not a business guy. At all. But I do understand it cause of the books I’ve read. Trump books, Robert K, Brian Tracy books etc, etc.

As well as my Ebay trainin’.

When interacting with customers little thoughts and quotes from those pop into my head. Like one sales book preaches appearance, appearance, appearance.

After reading that, I started wearing a full suit at work. This was a good idea cause it increased my tips my 20%.  20 freakin’ percent!

Another thing I read in a Brian Tracy book was the use of active listening skills. Which I already have cause of my improv background.

My active listening skills are used to understand my customers, co workers, as well as my bosses. It’s probably the best skill if you wanna appear down to earth and relatable to people.

Cause I always hear from new customers, “You’re a chill guy, Jamual“.

Or, “You’re not annoyin’“.

To me, the reason I hear that is because in sales books they say people gotta like you to make a sale. And that’s what I try to do. That’s probably the core of my “sales strategy” – don’t be annoyin’.

The only thing bout customer service jobs is that sometimes you get wild people. And you have to deal with their craziness. So, you need a immense amount of patience and like dealin’ with craziness. And your good.

I know when I’m older, like ten years older, I’m gonna look back on my experiences and really smile about the skills that I learned being a customer service professional.

Why Trump Is Winning the Attention Game — The Wild Card of Politricks

I’m excited for this election. Way, way too much.

Why?

Cause politics is super boring. At least, to me.

But this election cycle has been super wild to say the least. And it’s all cause of one person…

Trump.

Now, say what you wanna say bout the policies. Or the crazy stuff that shoots out his mouth. The man can get a crowd excited. And come out to his rallies. Clinton? Nah, not at all. She’s boring as hell.

What does Trump do?

Well, after studying both candidates, I’ve noticed that he’s a firestarter. A wild card. A rebel in the political sphere. I’ve never seen a man like this ever. And as amateur “business student”. There’s a ton to learn ’bout marketing and personal branding and winning the attention game.

First off, it’s the language he uses. He speaks plainly. Like a copywriting ad. Or like a Ernest Hemingway book. Or a pulp novel from the 1940s. It’s very masculine. And makes him very, very easier to understand. Which can expand to the uneducated. And super educated. When I first heard him talk, I immediately knew exactly what he was doin’. It was something straight out of a copywriting/marketing/business handbook.

Hearing this made me flip out. Here was this super rich business guy, using techniques in a marketing book that I learned ’bout a couple months ago.

Me, as a broke student writer, freaked out. How is he doin’ this? Are these techniques that powerful? Well, I guess they are, cause he won the Republican nomination — pretty darn easily.

Next was his appearance. Look at this…

donald-trump-make-america-great-politics_0.jpg

American Personal Branding

… What does he look like to you? What does it remind you off?

Real American values? Sports? Beer? Truckers? Blue collar workers?

Boom!

That’s what his supporters — the majority — of them respond too. This character. This archetype. They’re people who don’t trust the government. And are affected by the lack of manufacturing jobs. With just one element, the hat, Trump has connected with millions of Americans.

In marketing, marketers know people respond to characters. And this is a character. From the shape of the suits to the hat, everything is a disguise to appeal to voters. This is pretty genius. I dunno if I’m the only person that notices it. No one in this election cycle has had stronger branding. Hilary is trying to do it with women. But it hasn’t been consistent. At All.

Next…

Trump has a wild mouth. And since he’s not a politician. He can use language in ways that regular politicians cannot. Imagine, boring Hilary saying the stuff he says. She’ll be crucified.

And this causes excitement. And keeps all the attention on him. Whether it’s good or bad. This is masterful marketing. He always refocuses it back on to him. If I had a real business, I would be studying this like crazy. Cause it’s super important.

Like Dan Kennedy said, ” Marketing is your business.

Cause without customers — your business dies. And without sales too (of course)…

… And here is he’s biggest thing…

… The man is super entertaining to watch. Which makes people think,”I gotta watch this guy. He’s gonna say some wild stuff.” At least that’s what happened to me.

Example was the first debate. Every time Hilary spoke, I tuned out. And it was hard to stay focused on her. Why? She speaks like dry politician. Boring stuff.

Trump? Heard every word. And laughed like crazy. Even hood guys around my house, were quoting that man. Yo! Hood guys don’t even care ’bout politics last time I checked.

And just so you know — I don’t like neither of ’em, politically. I’m an undecided.

But Trump is so hard to ignore that you get sucked in.

Wanna know what that is?

Strong branding.

Like Steve Jobs with people lining up and pitching tents to buy a phone with small upgrades.

Like Jordans where young black guys get shot for ’em.

Like McDonald’s with cheap good tasting food that gives you heart disease.

Strong branding creates die hard fans. That would defend you — no matter what. And keep you comin’ back for more.

This is what Trump has. And Hilary doesn’t.

Personally, I can’t wait for more debates. It’s been super entertaining. And I’m gonna be super sad when it’s over.

But I’ve learned a whole lot bout marketing that most people won’t even notice. Score for me! Make Writing Great Again!!! #MWGA! #JamualWrites

American Branding — Again

 

Things I’ve Noticed After Making Over 60 Bucks on EBay in 3 Weeks

I’ve really been into business lately. Mostly over the summer. I’ve been reading business books by Trump, Gary Vaynerchuk, Tony Robbins, and of course, finance guru — Robert Kiyosaki.

Why am doin’ this?

Well, since I have this blog — I thought might as well figure out how to expand this out, you know, all through marketing and branding.

Now, I’m not a natural entrepreneur by any means. It’s not my number one talent. At All.

My number one talent is that I’m a writer. That’s my strength. It’s been my strength since I was born. Ever since I was a kid locked in his room with a of couple books. And his silly imagination.

I’m the guy that goes to the book store. And stays there for 5 plus hours. And no one can find ’em.

I’m the guy that gets excited by James Patterson, Elmore Leonard, and James Cain thrillers.

I’m the guy that gets high scores on the reading part of the SAT. And flunks the math part.

I’m the guy — okay, I’ll stop now…

… But now, I’ve noticed that to expand my career — whether I wanna be a entrepreneur or an regular employee —  I’m gonna need more skills to become marketable.

So, I’ve been studying to get some overall business savvy skills. Over the summer, I’ve studied marketing, finance, branding, sales, and customer service (which I’m already good at) …

… Then I thought ’bout a whole host of hustles to do to get some experience. This blog was big part of it earlier in the year.

I even tried niches site, which I haven’t figured out yet.

But I did start selling video games on EBay. An idea I got from Gary V — the social media guru.

The whole experience has been pretty exciting. Where I’ve developed a nice little process for it.

Let me tell ya what it was:

On a day where I didn’t have anything to,  I would wake up. And walk to a video game store like Gamestop or something. Then go to the used games section and a buy cheap game. And then throw the listing up on EBay. And wait till it sells. Easy, huh?

Over the months of July and August, I did this project and I was really excited to use other skills  besides writing. I marketed, did operations, and customer service. I was a one man EBay selling machine. It was fun, fun, fun. Making money on the side is a amazing hobby for people. Especially for people like me with no business savvy whatsoever.

The Number Thing I’ve Noticed 

The number thing I’ve noticed ’bout running a business is that it’s hard, hard, hard. And it takes time, time, time. It’s a real grind.

I’ve been watching my boss for while — who owns a bar/ restaurant. And that man seems stressed all the time. You can tell by the look in his eyes. Always having to deal with stuff breaking, employees acting weirdly, customers fighting, burning cash at super fast rate.

One day, I heard him yelling on the phone saying, ” F you, f you, f you,” repeatedly  at a person. It was crazy. And showed me that running a business is serous, serious, business. And if you don’t know what you’re doing. And can’t take hits, emotionally. Or know your finances. Or can’t sell — you’re gonna be in deep deep doo – doo. 

Overall, if you wanna start a business or have a business — more power to ya. It’s a bunch of work.  But the skills you learn are amazing to talk bout. Or throw up on a resume. You just gotta figure out your strengths. And see where you fit in.
