Kevin Willett says sometimes you have to accept things that seem unfair and move on.
Last week I met a person at one of my networking events that expressed an interest in becoming a client. As a sign of good faith I introduced them to a great referral partner who has already agreed to work with them.
When I met up with them for lunch a week later, I was hopeful that they would sign on as a client because I felt I had already proven that I could help them. However, they spent the entire lunch flip flopping between joining and not joining. I have to be honest I wanted to scream “are you serious! The one partnership I already helped you obtain will more than pay for your membership!” But I didn’t because I realized that if I have to tell them that, then they probably are not the company I thought they were, and they won’t be a great client.
It can be really hard when you find yourself in situations like this to not let it bring you down. Try and remember all the times when a scenario like this turned out the opposite way and you got a great client out of it. You just have to acknowledge that life is unfair sometimes and move on.
