Givng but not Getting
The day of the appointment he was very appropriate and likable. I could think of several of my acquaintences that would be good connections for him. I have since taken my time to make those personal introductions happen, three different times.
Also, I happened to meet another new person, let's call her Sally, who would benefit from meeting Herb, so I asked Herb to come to a networking event where Sally was going to be. Herb agreed. At the last minute Herb bowed out. "Something had come up." Herb also asked me to save him a seat in a preview that we give of our course, which is basically two free hours of training. I'm sure you've guessed it, last minute, "Oh gosh darn, something has come up."
Is this too much to ask?
