UB Post - Prime Interview


A lot of people contacted me after my interview on ikon.mn's #EarlyBirds #ӨглөөнийХүн series in October. My LinkedIn, Gmail and Facebook exploded with emails and message requests. 

Mostly fresh college graduates and ladies in maternity leave asking for some career advise, mothers asking about schools to send their kids to, people abroad who are thinking of moving back to Mongolia, people asking how I learnt my English, and some men who clearly didn't read my interview (especially the part that I am engaged) and asking me out for a coffee. Anyways, till this date, I still haven't finished replying back. I only managed to finish replying on LinkedIn and Gmail, but still working on my Facebook messages. 

These messages were from Mongolians only, but all of a sudden, foreigners and the expat community started congratulating me in mid November. I didn't understand why till my friend from ING bank told me that my interview was on the UB POST as the Prime Interview (full page!?!). I couldn't believe it, so I asked my friend to take a photo and send it to me, and to my surprise this photo came:

G. BATZUL: FOREIGN INVESTORS WANT STABILITY, CREDIBILITY AND TRANSPARENCY OF INFORMATION


Truthfully speaking, I do not think I deserve this much attention and exposure. I am just a hard working lady, minding my own business. Definitely not running for any politics and I am genuinely surprised at why my interview is getting so much attention. 

Till this date, I still get surprised when ladies stop me in the bathroom or at restaurants, tell me that they have read my interview, also experienced "women do not support women" situation, and start talking about their life, basically. [I am a complete stranger to you! I could be a psychopathic killer. Why are you talking to me?] Anyways, one of the most funny and common comments would be the fact that I gained weight and they always ask if I am pregnant. 

Finally, I should note that one of the best things that happened, after this interview, is that my client base expanded exponentially - locally and internationally. People started asking me to rent their apartments here and there, asking me to valuate their apartments, etc. It definitely gave a positive impact to my career. However, I understand that it comes with huuuuuuge responsibilities and expectations, so I will do my best to be the best I can be and excel at work, but I really wish people stop asking if I am pregnant though. 

Anyways, bye for now. Hope you are all enjoying your New Year parties :)
Cheers,
B.

    1. Thank you! This is getting me lots of love and hate though. Will do my best to keep my cool.
      Ps: If you are in Mongolia, hope to see you at Sukhbaatar square to demonstrate against air pollution with fathers and mothers who deeply worry about their kids and next generation. It's really cold outside, but I am heading there at 1pm during my lunch break.

    1. Миний ямар хэлээр бичнэ үү танд ямар ч хамаагүй шүү. Даниар бичнэ үү. Англиар бичнэ үү. Оросоор бичнэ үү. Монголоор бичнэ үү.
      Цагаа гарган, нэргүй хуурамч профайл нээн коммент бичсэнд баярлалаа. Потенциал чинь бодит байдал ба миний бичсэн онигоог ойлгохгүй байвал ном сайн унш, буцаад сургуульд ор, өөр орны хэл сур, аял, нүдээ нээ, бусад хүмүүст ажлын байр бий болго. Чам шиг зураггүй нэргүй профайлийн ард нуугддаг, хуурамч эх оронч, хулчгар гарууд зөндөө байна. Хүмүүст атаархаж, нуугдаж муулахын оронд нүүрэн дээр минь ирчээд шүүмжил. Хийсэн бүтээсэн зүйлтэй, ажлын байр бий болгочоод, татвараа төлчөөд өөр хүмүүсийг шүүмжил. Тийм л эх орон ч юм бол одоо Сүхбаатар талбай дээр ирээд ээж аавуудтай хамт утааны эсрэг жагс. Битгий сошиал медиа дээр том хүн царайлаад жүжиглээд бай.
      Үнэнийг хүлээн зөвшөөрч чадахгүй, харанхуй, утаатай, мөрөөдлийн хуурамч орчиндоо амьдраад үлддээ хөөрхий. Чамайг үнэхээр өрөвдөж байна, Батзул.

    2. Хүнийг Монголоор бич гэж хэлж байгаа бол өөрөө эхлээд зөв бичиж сурмаар юм аа. Чи өнөөдөр үнэхээр их инээдийг минь хүргэлээ. Баярлалаа
