Walking the street of restaurant row in Miami beach I was stopped by some dude sitting at a table drinking his cafe-whatever when he stopped me and wanted me to give him 50 bucks.
Normally I have a policy for street people and when they ask for a little donation, I give it to them. I was a bit stunned, but not that blinded, and this guy got zip.
Guess he was working the averages but I never saw him get any money.
What’s the business lesson?
Always ask for the order and never stop. Sure we all get our share of no’s but a yes is sure to be just around the corner.
