I wanted to share this experience with others, because it was unexpected, but because I was prepared and ready to go, client resulted from my preparation.

Two weeks ago, I was in my favorite store, (Targets) and was walking aimlessly down this aisle, when all of a sudden, a woman called out my name. I turned around to see that it was my former Supervisor. (I'll keep names out of it) I looked in her direction and saw her walking towards me quickly. The first thing I thought was, "Oh Lord! Why did I have to bump into her?" This woman and I really never got along and I couldn't think of no other way that this encounter would turn out but disastrous. However, she smiled and held out her hands to greet me. I wanted to smack her hands away, turn up my nose and walk away. Instead, I reached for her hand and firmly shook her hand. We talked the entire time while shopping. While at check-out she told me that she was laid off and that her husband was fired from his job. She continued, she mentioned that her husband has just started a business and needed help doing things around the office. She offered me to come work for them. The offer was nice, but I remembered what it was like working with when she was my supervisor. (PURE H****). SO I thought.:idea: This was the perfect opportunity, I told her about my business and what I do and how I could help their business. We talked some more, I gave her my card, (I was glad to have some in my purse) and later that evening she called me. The next 48 hours we met at a local coffee shop and we signed a contract.
Who would have thought a supervisor, who ethic and conduct was so unbearable to work with, would now be someone paying me to do services? The moral.......When you become your own boss, you let go of the employee mind-set. Keep being professional no matter how bad a person treated you. Who knows, that person may someday REALLY appreciate what you do and pay you to do it. Now she is no longer just my former supervisor, but a client. :thumbsup:
