Let em Talk...

Our Weekly 2 Minute Read

Edition 138 - March 13, 2021

In many Asian cultures, they say when you sneeze, someone is talking about you behind your back.

We live in a world where people will always be talking.

The idea of "talking about" someone behind their back is looked down upon.

But what if they're actually talking good?

Reputation is huge in business.

Burn one bridge, it could damage future opportunities.

Maintain a bridge and leave a great impression, more doors could be opened later down the road.

If you never leave people with something good to say about you, it's going to lead to them to say negative things.

But leave them with a great impression, and they will glorify you to their other contacts.

It's the little things that add up...

The face you make when you enter the office every morning.

The way you answer the phone when a customer calls.

The way you treat the janitor versus the way you treat your boss.

...because you never know who will start talking...

That smile on your face could brighten up your co-worker's face.

That customer that called could leave a raving review on Yelp about you.

That janitor you became friends with could tell your boss how much of a good person you are.

...all as a result of your character.

So next time you find yourself sneezing, let's hope it was a good thing that was said behind your back.
