Received a phone call from a department of a company where one client is a director, the person at the other end of the phone asked if I can expand on the definition listed on my file to better define the payments I am receiving from the company, that are authorized by the director. I asked, what is the file definition, she said it just says consultant, I asked who gave the definition and she replied that his office created the file, I said why don’t you ask him or his office and she said, that her department don’t show any qualification or credential listing for me and was curious. I ended the conversation with the simple truth. I have no credentials, I did not finish college, I just made it through high school and my only knowledge is life lived and beliefs.
The service I provide is based on my personal belief and I have discovered that my clients always say that they are not rich. Then I ask, if you are not rich how do you define your worth, and most answer. The rich spend money on things. We create and enjoy living. Then I ask, with all the experts available to you why consider my opinion, and they reply by explaining that experts in their view don’t offer anything other than what they have studied and if what they knew worked things would be better for them and all.
The last ten years of your life should be amazing, if on the eleventh year you look back and you did good. Then keep living !
