You're at a party and someone asks you "So, what do you do for a living?" You are kind and you tell them something like "I am a computer repair technician".
Uh…OK. As the great Homer Simpson would say…BOOORRRING!
What about this. Next time someone asks you what you do for a living, tell them something creative like….."You know the guy that comes into your office or home and makes all the computers and technology talk to eachother or just makes everything work perfectly?…… Well, I'm that guy!"
Sounds better, doesn't it? Think of what you do, then put it in a different way. You will sound more interesting.
