A few weeks after my Gigstarz bloggers talk, a lady inboxed me on Facebook and expressed her interest in blogging and being the kind that doesn’t want to give text book advice, I challenged myself to make her my friend first and maybe then really understand how best to help her.
Today, we finally had the chance to meet and hangout for lunch as we’d only e-met on the web since I missed seeing her after my talk on that night. We were lucky to have this public holiday and made use of it by getting along and talking about just many things. She was a really awesome personality and super intelligent. Almost all the time, I did the listening and learnt quite a lot.
There’s so many amazing folks out there, online, on the streets, church, in the taxi, your neighbors and they’re willing to connect with you and get along. Pride and egos have kept us from exploring and meeting these people but they are there and maybe are waiting for us.
I’d love to implore you to meet people, don’t limit yourself to only the people you know, the stories you’ve heard, the faces you normally see and the ambiance you’re always hangout from.
