Being friendly gets you everywhere

Here I am again… blogging.

I’m really excited.

Do you know why?

I’ll tell you.

It all began on the morning of Friday 18th March 2011. I’d finished some work on my forth coming book and I’d finished following up some new contacts I had met at a networking event the night before. I was just about to begin my reading on family law.

Then I saw a red flash to my right. Yes it was my blackberry. I did the obvious thing and looked at it. I had received a bb message from a classmate asking if I was “available” to work at the law firm she works for for the day. I’m not stupid enough to turn down the opportunity. I could catch up on family law later! So I agreed.

Wait… there’s more. She told me the name of the firm and I was beaming from ear to ear because it was a firm I had applied to last week for a job.

The moral of this story is to be friendly to everyone you meet because you NEVER know what that connection could bring.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.Romans 8:28

Until next time.

I empower young adults to transition successfully from school to the real world. WHY? It's needed! Just remember what it was like for you. HOW? Through inspirational self-help books , story telling and impactful workshops, seminars and conferences. WHO AM I: I'm the person who sees a need and creates a practical solution to solve it. I'm the first one in my family to have gone to university and found the "school to university" transition tough. I did terribly in my first year. Yet through asking questions, learning the ropes and pure determination I went from a 3rd class degree to a 2:1. This inspired my first award winning book, "What They Don't Tell You about University", (which got published when I was at Law School). The sequel, "What They Don't Tell You When You Graduate" followed and is packed with crucial advice for the new graduate! I've given advice to the masses through The Telegraph, BBC radio and London Live. My speaking engagements range from educational institutions to corporates to government departments.
