I want to take a few minutes to share a personal story with you that absolutely blew my mind.
Not long ago, my wife Missy and I invited my good friend (and one of the most awesome people I know) Brad Douglas and his wife Barbara over for dinner.
We wanted to, in a personal and meaningful way, say “Thank You” for an introduction Brad made that led to a business opportunity for Missy’s meeting and event planning business, MJMeetings.
At one point in the night, Brad told me about someone he met named James Webb. Brad said James was a fascinating gentlemen who had been in the Navy, had been in the special forces, and who had some amazing experiences in his business life.
During their conversation, James told Brad about an article he carried with him that had dramatically impacted his life. James told him that he had shared the article with countless people over the years.
Wait, an article I wrote nearly FIVE years ago is something that dramatically impacted the life of someone I don’t even know? And to this day he carries it with him in his briefcase and shares it with other people?
I’m happy to report that James and I recently met at the Factory Cafe at The Roasterie and had a great conversation. Oh, and guess what? HE’S AWESOME.
James asked me more than once what he could do to help Blue Gurus and MJMeetings and he shared some of his experiences about his upbringing on a farm in Tennessee, his time in the special forces, and his time in business.
Have you experienced anything like this, either as a writer or as someone who reached out to a writer who impacted your life in a positive way? We’d love to hear about it. Post a comment below and share it with us and our readers!
