You know them. The people who never give. They only take.
They’re those people you haven’t connected with in years. They suddenly pop up and beg for referrals, advice, a job for their kid, or just want to “pick your brain.” Gimme, gimme, gimme. Never offering anything in return.
I believe in the givers. Especially now when the world is upside down and we should all be lifting each other up.
Our business helps friends when they get overwhelmed with work. Every day, we happily provide career advice, help with resumes, share contacts, introduce interns—for free.
Karmic payback in the form of consulting projects doesn’t always happen immediately, but our grateful colleagues keep us busy with plenty of referrals to their friends.
I’d rather be the one you’re happy to hear from and WANT to help. 😉
