Posted by on Jul 6, 2009 in pay it forward | 0 comments

How often do you find yourself on the receiving end of someone try to convince you that you could leverage the useless thing/service/contact or whatever they’re trying to “offer” you?  If I had a dollar for every time this happens to me, my 401(k) would undoubtedly be back where it used to be. I simply do not understand why people just don’t ask you what it is you need help with…..?  Do they think that maybe you don’t actually know?
