“Private Man, what do you think about this…”
This is from Cynthia, one of my recruiters/agents. She’s made a great deal of money from me over the past few years and only calls me when she knows she has a good potential writing assignment.
She asks me some questions about a contract opportunity. It’s not actually writing, it’s about a management job that involves lots of writing. The requirements are easy for me, things that I have done well over the years. Writing about medical technology in an audited environment is something I know.
I volunteer to write her some bullet points to help sell me into this assignment.
“Oh, Private Man, you are the best.”
My alpha moment was manifested by this quick and natural response:
“I know I am.”
I could feel the tingles over the phone.
