Bing defines opportunity cost as the, “..cost of business decision made: the cost of a commercial decision regarded as the value of the alternative that is forgone.” Basically that means you have to lose in order to gain, right? Well, what if I told you there’s a way to maximize your efforts professionally when it comes on to the cost behind opportunity.
Today I just got finished setting up for an annual Law Forum that is held by just about every university with a law program. Tomorrow we’re, FAMU, is up next.
Because it’s apart of my job I have to tell you, that if you are interested in law school and are in the Tallahassee area, make sure that you stop by Jake-Gaither gymnasium between the hours of 10am-2pm. We’re in a new venue, with twice as many law schools, and all the fee waivers you can ask for. Now here’s the part I don’t have to tell you.
In my world I like to think that any and every contact is a good contact. Therefore, if law school is not of interest to you, still show up as if it were. Trust me, it doesn’t hurt to have a lawyer, law school admissions counselor, and/or dean of a law school’s contact in your pocket.
Take my advice. Come-anyhow!
Personally for me, I create opportunity where there isn’t any. Because while the others (vast majority) are solely confining themselves to their profession, I’m branching out in others, including theirs, while sticking to my own.
This increases opportunity, therefore making the cost of it work in your favor. As they say, you gotta spend money to make money. Spend time in the places and around the people who maybe slightly out-of-pocket for you, and create a spark where there is no fire. Remember, it’s not about what you know, but WHO you know.
As the good boys say, CHECKMATE!
Happy hunting! 🙂
