Letter From the Editor
I’ve got a challenge for all of us this week: try one new thing.
And I don’t mean try one new artisan dark chocolate and sea salt bar (consciously holding myself back!), I mean something new on the business front. Putting a new organizational tactic in place to help with time management. Setting up a meeting with someone in your company you have never met before. Proposing a new collaborative effort. Asking for something—an experience, an opportunity—you want.
I think most of us would agree that we’re fortunate to have found careers where we don’t do the same thing day in and day out. But how often are we consciously trying to put new skills, new perspectives, new strategies into place? In order to continue evolving as professionals, this is arguably something we need to do on an ongoing basis—never settling for our status quo, but constantly moving forward, stretching ourselves to create new opportunities.
In this week’s newsletter, we’re serving up great content that could be the inspiration for your “something new.” Perhaps you’ll set up a meeting with a buyer you have never met before. Or submit a proposal to enhance the visibility of your programs. We hope RDBA Weekly will provide you with new tools and new ideas to succeed, constantly pushing the envelop as a retail dietitian.
