I got pulled into a meeting this morning to discuss who we should bring in for a workshop in February. Based on the topic, I said, “what about the guy I just got this last bit of research from?” (why do I open my fucking mouth?) Anyway, the group said that was great – go email him. So I did. And he said it sounds great. And my brain threatened to explode.
I had a contact in the industry that my super smart colleagues didn’t know about.
I asked a favor of the contact.
Even though it means coming to the Midwest in the middle of winter, he said sure.
I have totally saved the day because this shit is really quite interesting.
Now, can anyone explain to me why I feel entirely too young to have pulled something like this off? (for reference, I’m 37)
