CMC Speaker Intro:Monkey Jenga as the Angry Life Cheerleader
Who the hell am I? I don't deserve to present anything at Camp Mustache Canada.
EXCEPT FOR THAT I'M AWESOME.
And guess what? SO ARE YOU.
As Angry Life Cheerleader, I lovingly yell at people who are afraid to do things. You can do the thing! And if you can't, it's the thing's fault!
These things that you can do include:
- Apply for a job even if you don't meet every preferred qualification.
- Ask for a raise even if you haven't personally saved your boss's kitten from a treehouse fire.
- Talk your way into a job even if you don't meet the required qualifications. [SEE: Me and every office job I've ever had.]
- Get your overbearing coworker to stop talking over you in meetings.
Angry Life Cheerleading is proven to be effective. People who allow themselves to be angry-cheerleaded end up with more money, better work-balance, and a 100% increase in happiness*.
*NOTE: Happiness quantified by easily faked observational analysis.
I'm not only the Angry Life Cheerleader president. I'm also a client. I overcame my own perfectionism and Imposter Syndrome that had kept me overworked and underpaid. Without a college degree, I worked my way up from temp jobs to a six-figure salary in only five years. It could have happened a lot more quickly, and with a lot less stress, if I knew then what I know now.
That is: your competition isn't as good as you think, and everybody else thinks you're awesome. Just freaking accept it already. Now go and tell your boss exactly why you deserve more money (AND MAYBE FREE SKY-DIVING LESSONS???).
Join us for a high-energy group cheerleading session to break through barriers and maximize life choices and savings. We'll focus on individual goals and learn how to be our own Angry Life Cheerleaders, in the loudest, excitingest, and cheeringest session of Camp Mustache Canada.
