Is Anyone Out There?

One of the great outcomes of workshops and conferences is that you have the opportunity to meet people who may share your purpose.  Sometimes the experience can be a bit overwhelming as you trade business cards and contact information.  A coach of mine suggested that you should create a help wanted sign that specifically outlines what outcome you are seeking.

Who do you think posted the following help wanted sign years ago:

“ Men wanted for Hazardous journey.  Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful.  Honour and recognition in case of success.”

If you guessed Ernest Shackleton you have a good historical knowledge.  Notice how specific the post reads.  Interested parties are not going to mistake this for a Disney Cruise.


How does your help wanted sign read?
