NutritionJobs: What career mistakes have you made along the way?
Karen Dolins: Many, I’m sure. I’ll tell you that the most difficult thing for me is tooting my own horn. Marketing is not a strength of mine. As a result, I’ve lost out on some opportunities. I had one great opportunity that didn’t go anywhere. I think I was too nervous at the time and didn’t do enough receptive listening. I never got feedback, but my guess is that I could have been a better listener to the athletes, and been more sensitive to the fact that they were getting information from a wide variety of people and I perhaps could have been more open to being sensitive to that.
