Hot and muggy, with a side of damp. It was noticeably cooler yesterday than last week, and it’s been getting below 80F at night. I’m gonna say that Fall is coming. But it ain’t here yet. Still hot and humid.
Did my show yesterday. Loaded in and set up in the morning, actually sold some stuff right away, and hope to sell some more. The big stuff that I really wanted to move hasn’t moved yet. Several interested parties for one item, but I’m having trouble finding a fair price. Very few comps online.
Today I’m bringing another bin of stuff I pulled out of my office last night. Could pull more besides but it got late. Maybe for Sunday morning I’ll have time to pull some more.
Meatspace. It’s important, even if it goes against your basic nature. I am not outgoing by nature. I’ve worked hard over the years to develop the persona that can just chat with random strangers, and initiate contact with them. It’s a skill that can be learned and improved. I think it’s worth spending time doing so, as in person interaction is very important and probably will become even more so in the next few years. Being likable, open, and friendly has helped me tremendously personally and professionally. It’s hard work, but it pays off.
Stack some skills. And some network. They’ll help.
