It's great to have you on the Vendtalk list. Of course, many of us know
Terry. And of course, I know Missouri, as I was once a Missouri blind
vendor. Served on the Missouri Bureau for the Blind advisory committee and
was VP of NFB affiliate. I still have a daughter who lives in Columbia, MO
whom I visited last week.

But, enough old home week. Good luck with getting a good placement. Please
use our Vendtalk list to offer ideas and exchange information with your
fellow federation merchants. I hope you're involved in a local NFB chapter.

Hello  everyone,

My name is Chasity and I have just joined this vendtalk  mailing list 
today. I am in the process of completing all requirements to get  into the
program here in St. Louis, MO. I am about to take the math test  that is 
required and then I will proceed with other requirements. I am  extremely
about this. I haven't felt more confident about a decision  in a long time 
as I do about this one. So I'm just here to check out the  discussion and to

network with other people.

To let you all know a  little about me, I am 27 and live in the St. Louis 
area. I attended college at  the University of Missouri-St. Louis where I
my Bachelor's in Mass  Communications with an emphasis in Theory and 
Rhetoric, a minor in English and  a certificate in writing. I also attended
Pierre Laclede Honors College  while at the university. The Honors College
for students who consistently  maintain over a 3.2 cumulative GPA throughout

their academic career. Once  graduating from the university, I thought I 
wanted to pursue law school,  however, after studying for the LSAT, I became

confident that was indeed not  for me. Then I decided that I might want to 
pursue an MBA degree, but that was  definitely not for me either. 

Over the past couple years, I have been  learning more and more about 
vending, and I absolutely love the idea, and I am  more confident about my 
decision to do that than I was about the previous two  decisions I made. I
have a 
very close friend who lives with me. His name is  Terry Posont and he was a 
vendor in the state of Michigan for about 25 years.  We have been very close

friends for almost 5 years, and he has lived here with  me for the past 
year and a half. We have talked at great length about the  program. My
to become a vendor started when I would ask him questions  about how he 
used to run his own store, etc. When I first started asking, I  was simply 
doing it out of curiosity, not because I had an interest. But the  more 
questions I asked, and the more I learned about it, I realized how
interesting it 
was to me and how much I really wanted to do it. I have a very  strong, 
assertive personality and I enjoy taking leading rolls in activities,  etc.
and I 
really think this is a good fit for me, after learning all of the  
responsibilities involved. I informed my counselor that this was what I
wanted, and she was very excited for me and extremely supportive of my

So I just joined the list to meet other people and to check  out the 
discussion that goes on here to learn new things. I will keep everyone
My counselor has told the coordinator that I am ready to take the  math
So now I'm just waiting until something is scheduled. In the mean  time, I 
am studying with Terry for the test. I believe the next class for BEP  
starts in January in Jefferson City. I am very excited and will be
all requirements in order to make that one. I understand that the man who
 to teach the course in Jeff City recently resigned and they are finding a 
new  person to teach the course, so I believe that has delayed things.  

Anyway, take care and hope to hear from some of you.
