I was at an event last week and had the pleasure of meeting a store owner for a shoe brand I adore. I won’t name names, but check out the shoe credits and you get the idea 😉 I had a fan girl moment and messaged the owner to let her know how much I admire her work. What followed was a lovely little conversation, which just had me smiling and relaying it to my friends afterwards (complete with fan girl hand movements – think jazz hands). One thing that stuck with me was that the owner said that she didn’t get many messages and I was surprised. If anything, I thought she’d be inundated and I didn’t want to be perceived as a pest. However in retrospect, I’m glad I did it because I’ve learned one thing from the experience: never assume that you know what is going on in the other person’s life and that you’re doing them a favour by keeping to yourself. Reach out and say hello, because that could be the thing that brightens their day, or stops a miscommunication from escalating into something that it was never meant to be.
Plus, then you get to have fan girl moments with me, and we can jazz hands together 😀
