In our Roadtrip we want to accomplish a lot of different things in gerneral, but in reality we have to get down to the core and actually think about what we want to get out of this whole thing. A couple of things we had in common that we would like to get out of this was -Reasuring our selves on our future career. - Learn the obstacles they had to overcome. - Overall expand our knowledge. We didnt really have any different ideas because we all came together and narrowed it down to these 3 Point

What to do and what NOT to do on a Cold Call

Hey Guys!,
I just had my Cold Call a few minutes ago! and boy was I nervous. Also to top it off I had to speak Spanish, yes I speak fluent Spanish because I am Latina; but when I'm nervous I tend to stutter a lot so in Spanish you can only imagine. Well I called a hair salon in my local city, that I was really interested in because it was new so I thought it would be awesome to interview someone who is fresh and new from barely starting possibly their new career. I'm guessing the lady there her name was Maria, was Latina as well because she answered in Spanish. Quickly I thought on my toes and responded in Spanish, so I explained to her my assignment and really told her I was as well as interested in Cosmetology. Right off the bat she was super interested in being interviewed and seemed honored that some high school student would want to interview her so early in her opening business. So I scheduled the interview and hung up the phone but with the biggest relief in the world, and I felt so proud of my self because I'm pretty shy so for me to do that was a great experience to do on my own. Now for the TIPS !!!: 1.) Make sure your House Phone or Cell Phone is charged!, 2.) Your in a quiet place, 3.) You have some type of script just in case you forget what to say :), 4.) Just be yourself don't sound like a robot!, 5.) and lastly really is remember why your doing this and what you really want to get out of this ! and Remember to breathe! - Laura Yesenia Herrera
