“You have brains in your head; you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose,” said Dr. Seuss. Whenever you are pursuing your dream and passion, you’re motivated to make sure it gets accomplished. “Any goal or dream takes an immense amount of focus to continue. However, there are moments where individuals can lose that focus because too much is happening at one time. This is counter-productive on the route to your dreams,” says Danielle Hay, Managing Director of Haywire Inc. At Haywire Inc., we believe in using every tool to help you focus and maintain it. We implement strategies to help our representatives keep a strong focus so that they succeed. “In the business field, it’s important not to let anything keep you away from the target,” mentions Danielle Hay of Marketing Buzz Promotions. Throughout different areas and industries, you will encounter individuals that are so overwhelmed they lack focus. The first thing to remember is that you are human. Not a machine, it’s okay to feel worn out. Studies show that performing more than two tasks at a time leads to inconsistency and no quality. It’s not about how much you do, but how well you do it. This is the number 1 cause of why people lose focus towards their goals. Along with an emphasis on a few things at a time, other tools and techniques can help you gain your focus and stay keen on it as well. Use an app or outlet to manage settings. Most times these tools are there for your convenience. You allow what you let in and establish a zone where you can time manage everything. For example, allow work calls and emails until 6-7pm during the evening, after that silence it. Relax and make time for yourself, by recharging you’ll be able to focus and accomplish more with a fresh mind. Use a calendar. Jotting events and to-do lists in your calendar can help provide accuracy and clarity. This also helps ensure proper focus. “Traditionally you might believe that taking a break to gain clarity is something that isn’t allowed because it’s a waste of time. However, it’s important because not only does it help get clarity but it establishes focus,” says Danielle Hay of Haywire Inc. When you set and agree to limits on your time, you will commit and ensure yourself more thoroughly.

The most exceptional aspect about Universities is the fact there are new, fresh minded individuals looking to get their education and make it out in the real world. A student mentality is something we respect and look up to at Haywire Inc. For marketing week, our CEO, Danielle Hay, was contacted by Quinnipiac University to speak about B2B, B2C and Events/Promotional marketing. “This was a great opportunity for me personally because I got to speak about something I am passionate about and got to interact with students looking to learn more about the marketing world,” says Danielle Hay, managing director of Haywire Inc. The topic Haywire focused mostly on is to introduce the fact that marketing is transferable. “For example, if someone is looking a job, it’s a great opportunity to get knowledge and decently proficient in those skills for upcoming job searches. Regardless of what you want to pursue, marketing will be transferable. The skills you have can be put towards marketing in various areas. If you’re hardworking then hard work will help you and if you’ve got great communication skills, then that will help you with clients and customers,” says Danielle Hay of Haywire. One aspect we really emphasize on and appreciate is the fact that newcomers are able to be confident in their abilities. Being confident is the majority of what marketing is all about. Being able to put yourself forward in a smart and savvy way with the ability to know that you can handle it. If you’re looking to get in the marketing field, it’s a good idea to get familiar with some methods and strategies to transfer your abilities in. Being familiar with specific skills and abilities shows that you’re able to understand what any job entitles for you. Use current knowledge and think about situations have you have needed to use them throughout your life/career. By being prepared this way, you can understand that the marketing world has a lot of offer if you’re interested. “Speaking to these students and telling them about how marketing impacts our world and has become a leader career in our time, it shows that we do is important and we value our clients/customers very much. This is why when graduate season comes around we’re always excited to see new faces that’ll maybe someday be well-known faces in the business industry,” says Danielle Hay of Haywire Inc.
