Poking Myself in the Eye

My friend Bonnie likes to reference the Eye Poke.
I am surprised I have eyes left for all the times I have tried to carefully consider all circumstances and personality traits of my clients (and sometimes friends) and make a plan for success that honors the obsticles in our way.

Sometimes it works. Once I had a 17 yr old mother of two walk in for an appraisal return 2 hours later with a job at a cell phone company.

Two years later , she is managing the store. I was honored to attend her high school graduation.

Other times I need protective eye ware. Yesterday I printed 3 copies of a resume for someone whom I ran into an hour later smoking crack at the corner store parking lot.

Poke. Poke. Poke.
