A long time client, who has become a good friend over the years (no names mentioned but Howdy Robin D. and how’s things down Nashville way?), has recently taken a job with a new company.
When I sent her a note congratulating her on the new company and position, I of course, as any good consultant would do, suggested, “Perhaps we’ll have a chance to work together on improving proposal capabilities or if you get a ‘big one’.”
Her reply is a good example of how written communications can have different meanings.
Robin wrote back, “You’re of course at the top of my list when it comes to needing help.”
Till I hear from her, I’m going to assume she meant that in a good way.
