it’s me

Left Brain meets Right Brain

Seriously, ever since I was a kid I’ve been a logical dreamer. I hated finger painting, but loved Lego and crayons, construction paper and math problems. I thought math was entertainment until I got to calculus. I’ve taken many assessments and brain dominance graphs over the years and I always score smack in the middle between left-brain dominance and right-brain dominance. That means I can soar in the ethereal world of metaphors and visual imagery and then shift gears into step-by-step logical thinking. I’m as likely to use a spreadsheet as a visualizing tool as I am to use magic markers and a sketchbook.

“Hi Mr. Cohen,

My name is Katie Baker, and I am a student at Georgia State University. On Thursday, February 24, you gave an incredible presentation to my Professional Sales Marketing class. I just wanted to thank you for your time, and genuine passion for educating myself and fellow students about personal branding. I learned a lot about what I should be doing to give the best impression of myself. Not even hours later, I was updating my profile, professional pages, and resume to reflect what I had learned. I also participated in a career fair today, and I utilized some tips from your speech. Thank you again for your time.
