I read an article the other day titled, The False Promise of Morning Routines. The article talked about famous influential people and what they do in the morning. One of the people being, Mark Wahlberg, whose morning routine was shared with the world’s population. (Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but still!)
I really enjoy reading “Day in the Life” posts, so I thought I’d share mine with you all. You all will see in mine that I’m not a 5 a.m. gym person or a parent (more alone/extra time to get ready!!) My day is going to be just like me; sometimes disorganized or more organized then necessary. Just because a picture looks perfect, doesn’t mean what’s behind the lens is.
Today and tomorrow are the sales meeting for Show Me Shortline, our sister company. That basically means there isn’t anybody sitting by me and I’m completely alone in my area at work. It’s weird because some days it’s so nice to get work down with fart noises, someone talking to me, or watching farming videos, (what do you think I work with – 12 year old’s or grown men?) but some days it’s too quiet. Today is a day that I’m glad it’s quiet. I like it to be quiet whenever I’m typing something because I’m horrible about typing whatever I hear in the background.
I had to make a call at 11:45 to a client who is interested in social media marketing. She wasn’t in, so I made note to call her back the next day!
Lunch Time – 12:00 p.m.
I typically go home on my lunch break and eat something, but today they provided us with some lunch (and breakfast!) On a normal day, I would go home, eat some leftovers or Slim Jims (I’m obsessed!) and the tidy up my house. I always like using that time to catch up on things that I didn’t do last night to clean up.
Back to Work - 12:30 p.m.
After lunch, I check my email to make sure I didn’t miss anything while I was eating.
We have booklets that we give to businesses that we meet or that are interested in marketing, so I spend time laminating them. (Nerd Alert: I love laminating. I just think it makes whatever I’m laminating look so good and makes the colors pop!)
I use the afternoons at work to call people that are on my list. It’s generally people who have showed interest in marketing by reaching out to us or reading through emails we’ve sent out. My calls went good today! I got a meeting set up for next week and we sent out emails to two companies that wanted more information. Once I’ve logged the information from my calls, I clock out and head home. Our work Christmas party is tonight, so I’ll be back shortly.
4:00 – Home
I get home after work and I let the dogs out and feed them. My typical routine would include feeding the dogs around 6 or 7, but I knew we would be at the Christmas party. I took a quick shower to rinse off the day. (Does anyone else do this? If I’ve sat around all day and never got dirty, I still feel like I need to rinse off.)
I re-did my make up and hair and get dressed in one of my favorite dresses. Question: Do you all try to match your significant other when you go to parties or weddings? I never do. We always end up in different colors that couldn’t match if we tried.
I hope you enjoyed learning about my life. I had a lot of fun writing this and I hope this gave you a look into the life of a Marketing Assistant. If you would’ve told me, a year ago, this is what my life would look like, I would’ve laughed. I am so happy for this job and excited for 2020!
