Jobs are funny. No matter what you do, or how well you do it, there will always be someone that won't like it. I met this woman today.
I was at the grocery store and saw one of the students from my school. She came up to me, said hi, and introduced me to her mom. We talked for a minute or two, and then the student asked about a Scholarship Prep Night I am hosting later this week. At this point, her mother chimed in.
"I'm not going to sit through another hour that is a waste of time."
Supposedly the Scholarship Night I hosted in January had been a waste of time. Tell that to the seniors I worked with this year, who followed my "boring" advice. They were awarded a total of $390,899 in scholarships. I responded.
"I'm sorry you feel it is a waste of an hour to help your daughter with her future. What I have to say is important, and I'm sorry you feel differently."
I turned and walked away, because you just can't win them all.
