I haven’t been on this earth long enough to claim that I know a lot, but the little I know has shown me that people do change. Who I am now is not who I used to be. Am I getting better as I age like it is the case for wine? I really don’t know.
I remember many years ago as Paul my business partner and I spoke about what we would like to create in the future, he told me that I would be the front man of our company, and he would work behind the scenes.
He kept his word for a long time. I can assure you that he made me look good on numerous occasions while he did most of the work. My job was to go out and present; I had a very good deal.
That was a few years ago. I guess I did a very good job at presenting our stuff (at least that is what I tell myself). Well guess what happened a little over a year ago? Paul went out and got his coaching certificate and now he is presenting workshops with me and coaching as well. I think I inspired him lol. He even did an entire presentation the other day by himself.
Now don’t get me wrong, Paul is a very good presenter. He has done this at his job before on a number of occasions. But somehow, he decided to be the behind the scenes guy in our company (maybe he thought I was the good looking one between both of us lol). People do really change and now he is the front man.
In fact, we are preparing to host a workshop on Saturday November 8th. As usual, Paul is doing all the work, and I am getting ready to look good again thanks to him. This time, I don’t think I will look good for a long time as he will be doing most of the presentation. I think I went from being the front man to being a cheerleader for Paul lol. People do really change.
If you are in the Toronto area, you are invited to this workshop as well. Click here for more information
Seriously though,if you are in a relationship with someone (could be professional or otherwise), please allow them to be who they are. Allow the relationship to evolve without any hindrance, because people do change. At least, that is what I learned with Paul.
Moral of the story? Do you want your life to change? Come to our workshop and you will meet Paul. You will be doing all the work while I look good lol
Always a pleasure
