My first failure didn’t even slow me down. I kept grinding, and working at my angle. I knew that being more professional was a big part of my game that I was missing. In my early days I said a big F-U to professionalism, but now I regret it. I decided be serious about getting more professional. I knew in Queens, NYC, and the Bronx that professionalism was taken for granted. I decided to travel up to CT to work my magic because up there they look up to the aggressive New York style of doing business.
I knew that I needed to get as professional as I could get. I started thinking to myself… What are the most professional businesses?
I knew one thing was for sure… I wasn’t going anywhere near a police station.
I decided to be as professional as I could, and emulate the most professional Dentists in CT. Turns out there are 1000s of dental offices throughout Connecticut. I figured that I’d narrow down my search by looking at specialists. I found one guy named Dr. Tagliarini who did TMJ Treatment in CT, but I doubted that he’d talk to me. By his listing picture he looked way too professional for me to even try to approach. Carmine isn’t exactly the friendliest looking guy.
I decided just to do my research. Turns out the guy was part of like 20 different organizations! That’s all I needed to get started. I knew now that if I wanted to be a true professional that I needed to stop sticking it, and start being part of the professional community.
