I am currently at Montreal Airport. This morning, my first flight of the day got canceled. Fortunately, I had made plans in case something like that happened, so I was able to get an earlier flight. If I hadn't, I would have pushed my entire trip a day back, which would not have worked. You may be wondering, "How does this relate to my strategic plan?"

This May, I moved to Vancouver to join SME Strategy as co-op student. The role was described as a marketing role at a small and growing consulting company, so I was excited by the opportunity. Shortly after arriving, I realized my role would expand to be much more than originally expected. I was eventually tasked with a variety of tasks that fit into the marketing bucket, including one-to-one sales, content creation, email marketing and copywriting.

This is what I learned:
