Networking for new success! I attended the WITHIT conference a month ago but only just now got to posting pictures. I have to say it is my favorite organization in our Home Furnishings Industry. The caliber of the members, the incredible generosity shown, and the accessibility to industry mavens and mavericks is unprecedented. Check it out at www.WITHIT.org.
Date details and lessons learned! Okay, I figure you won’t remember the middle, just the beginning and the end, but wanted to share some humor, if not a painful lesson. Two weeks ago on a Friday night I had a date with a builder here in Highlands. Now, it wasn’t intended to be a date, but instead just a business meeting. Cardinal error on my part, I allowed him to pick me up since we live about four houses apart (I never do that, what was I thinking?) We went to a lovely country club nearby, Mountain Top if anyone is looking. In just 2 short hours (or long from my viewpoint) he managed to get completely smashed and couldn’t form a complete thought, let alone a sentence or his name.
I realized quickly that I had to find an alternative means home if I wanted to make it in one piece on pitch black mountain roads. I disappeared to the ladies room and got the staff to help me. They took him home while I hid out until he left. I got a ride from another guest. How convenient the builder has no recollection and I’ll never forget! Dating in today’s world is not for the faint of heart. For more entertaining tales from the trenches, check out my upcoming blog, these stories are too good to be kept to myself. All names changed to protect the guilty.
