This post has nothing to do with cell phones or cell phone signal; this is about listening. As a business owner I truly understand the importance of listening to your customers and attempting to make them happy…within reason, however; I have a customer right now (a builder) that does not let me talk. When I start talking I get cut off. When I actually get a few words out they don’t hear them. They have taken up endless time in person and on the phone, to the point where there is no money in it anymore for my business. At this point I just want/ need the job to end so I can move on.
So as much as I agree with building relationships and “caring” for people, etc.; you also HAVE to know when enough is enough. You can’t give to the point of losing sanity or money. You have to know when you’re traveling down a dead end road and when it’s the right time to turn around…don’t you? Some things in life just aren’t worth your time, and the sooner you are aware of that the sooner you can cut your losses and move on to something more productive and rewarding.
