Last year, I had what I thought a great call with someone from a company that had been on my ‘Companies I’d Love To Work With’ list. Our conversation felt good. They asked me to follow-up in a couple of weeks. A couple of weeks rolled by and I shot off an email, excited for the opportunity. Nothing. Nada. Ok, another week went by. I emailed again. Nope, still nothing. Disappointed, I came downstairs and mentioned to K it seemed like I had been ghosted. I’ll never forget her reply. Or, more accurately, how she replied.
‘Yeah, that happens.’ Then she turned around and went back to emptying the dishwasher.
She said it totally one-hundred-percent nonchalantly. How she responded, having not been invested, was an awesome reminder to me. It happens. No worries. Move on.
