What’s funny is those same dudes be wearing ill fitting suits and square toe dress shoes, trying to kick knowledge and tell you what to do
Are these the folks that try to recruit you while you’re grocery shopping??
Bruh...your posts triggered a memory. I can't remember where exactly I was for the initial interaction (may Starbucks or a nice restaurant bar) and this older white dude in a suit started talking to me. Then he starts talking to me about this business he had, blah, blah and says he doesn't have his materials on him but asks if I want to meet up the next day at Starbucks for coffee and he can show his pitch. I remember thinking "Oh ****, this suit paid for itself ) because I thought dude was going to come through with legit job. Maaannnnn this MFer showed up with MLM materials trying to explain to me how it worked like it I didn't know it was a scam Had me at Starbucks like
The second time a pseudo-mentee/kid I hired called ME to ask me to meet up with him and his boy about their business. He went to my alma mater and was one my annual handpicked hires. So I am thinking "Damn, I knew I was right about this kid! He got a startup!" so I knew I wasn't going to take it because I got a promotion that hadn't been announced yet but I wanted to hear about his startup and give him some pointers on some mentor steez. Maybe get a board seat.
Again - him and his friend present me with MLM stuff and I start laughing and ask if he's joking. Then he says "Man, don't you want to make more money?" Told him I am, I am taking Marlene's job when she retires, it hasn't been announced yet. Don't EVER disrespect me like this again MFer" grabbed my briefcase and walked out. Dude was shook to look me in the eyes ever again after that
