|I don't know if it comes with living in Silicon Valley and the 'types' that end of here ... or if people are changing ... or if I just got old.
There is a certain demographic, by ethnicity, that I have had a particularly hard time with.
They consistently (read ALWAYS) want too much for too little (read NOTHING)... make promises and don't keep them and ... and.
I was stiffed yet again by a member of this country. I was notified by SMS only AFTER I had reached out to follow through.
No, I'm sorry. Just another 'request' for me to help them ... ARGH!
In another text window I had a different member of this ethnic group. Several times I sighed in exasperation, to myself, picked up my phone and started to cancel an appointment we had sked for this morning ... figuring yet another waste of time that I definitely can't spare right now.
But, I went anyway.
A terrifically refreshing discussion. Lots of transparency. A very different perspective, read opposites on approaches to marketing ... and much more.
Still a lot of work to do. But I am once again optimistic...even hopeful that my stereotyping can be silenced.
Have you any experience with overcoming stereotyping?
