On Tuesday, we got to hear from Kacie Kinney about what she has learned from her time in real estate.
There were many important things that Kacie said that were memorable.
In regards to our futures, Kacie told us to think of our job as nature vs. nurture. That being said, we should be doing things that are "nature" to us while working on things that are "nurture" to us. She told us that the nature part comes easy and is enjoyable, while the nurture is challenging and uncomfortable. I think this is an accurate presentation of having a career in life. If we don't love what we're doing and find it second-nature to us, then it will make us feel like we are living our lives in the nurture section, being uncomfortable and unhappy.
Another thing Kacie said that stuck with me is that we will know when we're not where we need to be when what we are doing feels like writing with the wrong hand. Hearing this helped me a lot, as I've been thinking about what sector of PR I want to pursue after college. Whether it's sports, travel, non-profit or the many other options, I have been afraid I will choose the wrong one. Kacie's advice helps comfort me into knowing I will know what's right for me as soon as I begin doing it. I originally questioned what real estate had to do with our PR Publications class, but after hearing her speak it made me more motivated to find a job I'm passionate about.
Over the weekend, I was able to finish my video project. Although it's not perfect, it's a lot better than I thought it would be. All I have to say is... Thank God for B-Roll!
