Today’s Tip – What about me? This business is not about being selfish. It’s about being selfless for your own gain. Embrace and help.
“You guys are being SELFISH!” Well, alright perhaps not but still, I like that guy so here’s to you Jeffrey. I don’t care if your just a character you make me laugh!
That being said. Don’t be Selfish! Be selfless, reach out to those in your group. By now you should have a fairly large group anyway, right? Right because you have been practicing your networking skills! So now you have a larger group of people you can leverage for support.
What does this really do for you, this whole selfless thing? Well people will start to count on you for things. After all your already punctual, friendly and in the know with whats going on with others in your group. Why not offer to help, in return you get many benefits. You know the old saying you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours, well its true. (OK not me personally but Jeffrey might). It’s nice to know that your willing to pitch in as needed. Last minute fill in for one of those perpetually late people. Maybe picking some stuff up that someone else just didn’t have time to do. Coming and helping out some folks who need a sounding board. All of this helps you help yourself in the long run, in a world full of “I deserve” people, those of us who give all valued all the more.
So be a good person, share and share alike, no one likes a waffle whore. So don’t be one! Keep an eye out for those unfortunate souls who will take advantage of you though. There are limits and you should be able to recognize when a Selfish waffle hoarding bastard try’s to take advantage of you. Don’t let them do it.
