    "what the f!ck did you do?"

    This was last Friday. I was about 12 min in a 30 min walk. One I take daily, after eating lunch.

    As I was enjoying myself, I remembered an email I sent few hours earlier.

    See. I have set myself four hours/ week to look for products to sell. And I have just found one cool product. It fills a need and is cool to use.

    I reached out to the creator of the product to discuss private labelling. After few email exchanges, he asked to know more about myself and the vision I have.

    That got me thrilled, pumped and excited.

    And I replied with a passionate email. One that made me feel great about myself.

    There was only one issue: it was all about me.

    Me, me and me!

    I completely failed the "so what" test.

    And missed an opportunity to connect.

    Luckily, I am still interacting with the guy. And we have a call in few days.

    This serves as a reminder to always remember that it is not about me. It is about the person I am interacting with and how I can bring value - as they define it - to them.

    Cheers!

    Interesting read @S.Y.

    I saw a mirror there.

    Hope to improve upon that from now on.

    Glad it could help.

    Small things that make a big difference.
