So this week I'm stuck in a hotel with a couple others to have more meetings. My boss told me he needs me with him again this week and is counting on me to close the deals because I can charm the socks off the clients. I asked him if I should be offended by that remark and he told me no, he meant it as a compliment. Apparently these clients said some nice things about me and they found me refreshing. Whatever that means. They requested I be there this week for the finalization of the talks.
I spent a couple nights with the clients last week at dinner and I really didn't say much, but I did do a lot of listening and maybe that is what they found refreshing in me, that I actually listened to them. So here I am stuck in a hotel as I get ready for another week of work, late night dinners, and I have to wear more ties this week. Charming my ass.
