In an earlier entry, I mentioned about keeping quiet while attending meetings, less I be taken for a fool. I still hold to that. Off course, unless I am no longer a stranger to the group in the meeting, or it is a very small group and I find the need to keep the meeting alive before everyone falls asleep. Still, that does not make me no better than a fool.
Took on a new portfolio. I mean, I have decided to pursue a new opportunity in sales, joining the growing business of mutual fund. Not as a fund manager, mind you. But as I mentioned, selling the opportunity to invest to the public. Though I was made aware of the opportunity several years ago, it was only after reading a stranger's email last week that I decided to have a look into it. Thus I called the stranger and we met where he briefed me on the matter. It looks good to me plus the fact that I need something flexible enough to allow me continue my work on the net.
Earlier yesterday, I went to the Agency Manager's office where I began learning about Mutual Fund. The guy seem to be a good in sales and have accumulated an impressive portfolio. But as usual, when you have a guy who's skull is as thick as they come, things can bog down a little. And I certainly do not mean the Manager having the thick skull here, rather, its that cakapaje bloke whose blog you are reading now.
I mean, get real! I have not been in a classroom situation for a very long time. And no matter how good the tutor can be, things can get somewhat...sleepy? Thus, I said to myself: Hmm...do I want to be a fool now, or later? After a short while, I decided its better to be a fool now and presented a host of questions to the Manager. Poor guy, he looked somewhat drained by the end of the session. But hey! I do have right to be stupid...for now!
ps. I nearly forgot to add this: The main reason why I decided to be a stupid fool...for now, is because of this lady's blog I have been reading. Undoubtedly she's a brainer while I'm not. But her tenacity to pursue her studies makes me feel so small. I have come to admire her greatly not only for this, but for several other reasons as well. If by chance she drops over to my blog, I have no shame to admit my admiration for her.
