“That’s like counting the number of times you go past the gym without going in”

I can’t believe I am stopping to write this but if I don’t do it now I may not get to it. I can’t believe how irrelevant all the financial turmoil seems to be to our niche. I am not complaining. At the Pinnacle meeting last week someone actually chided me for not posting more. This isn’t even a rant…been too busy for rants…This is just simple appreciation for a guy who is not even from our industry saying something in a way that just helps focus on what’ll make us money. The title of this entry was spoken in response to some question about the number of calls someone was making as opposed to the number of connects. I just loved it. No problem on the recruiting side but I do obviously walk past the gym a lot.

One more thing…Pedro Silva and I have an idea for an article…it’d help if anyone seeing this could email me, or leave as comments, nominations for “The Top 10 Things All Recruiter Trainers Say” I’d love to get some FROM those trainers if anyone shows this to them. Gotta run…
