My internet pal, Mike Haberman, sent out a tweet and asked, “Do you tell your 60 yr old, overweight, non-degreed friend w/cust svc bckgrnd that they may never work again?”
Here’s what you do.
- Be kind.
- Be compassionate.
- Be a friend.
Give your friend all the support and encouragement he needs, but operate as a buddy. Family and friends don’t recognize you for your expertise. They rely upon you for your support and love.
