Insane huh? What a trip! My car stopped working right after I got off the freeway. But Noah this is not your personal blog, we don’t care about your suffering, we just want juicy business advice/tips. Fine. Have it your way?
What did I learn from a nice guy named Brian M who drove me to work today?
You have to ASK
I put my thumb out and walked along the side of the street. Everyone went on their merry way, thinking about what they had to do today, what’s for lunch, what they are doing this weekend, etc…
What this shows me is that no one cares about you. That’s okay. Users aren’t dying/waiting for you. So what do you have to do?
Get in there Fing face. I stopped in the middle of the road and made people notice me. I made them realize I need a ride, I am not “that” sketchy and I am just in need of help.
Luckily, I got Brian’s attention and he was super nice to drop me off at work today. Now I just have to figure out how I am going to get my car fixed…
Moral of the story:
1) You never know unless you ask
2) People don’t notice you, your site, your business…make them
3) Persistence pays off.
