In life, we have all met some people who turned out to be a complete waste of time and effort. I’ve had my fair share of these people – from friends who simply refuse to get their act together and make something useful of their life to budding entrepreneurs who seek help in getting things up and running.
While I have more of less weeded out most of such people from my friend’s list, I still get plenty of requests to help via reviews on my blog. I try and help as many people as I can without compromising the Bangsar Babe brand values and ethics, but some of the experiences turned out very disappointing.
Like a potential ice cream entrepreneur whom I helped as best I could, right down to securing meetings with potential buyers and getting his ice cream placed at bazaars. The guy’s business grew and just as quickly, he forgot (and to a point snubbed) the person who helped him when he first started.
There were a few others along the way that did the same thing and I noticed one thing they have in common – most of them come from a finance or consulting background. An industry that lacks empathy, kindness and appreciation. At least that’s what I think after several bad experiences with such people.
Anyhow, here’s a fashion update from me. I’ve been digging a lot of pastel colours — it’s quite obvious in the photos below. ;)
