So here is a little tip I was teaching my kid and I thought you guys might like it too.
People love to talk about themselves.
They really do.
They want to be heard.
I can't tell you how many parties I have gone to and just sat with someone and asked them questions about their life.
This could be a person I have nothing in common with, and yet I am fascinated by their answers.
Predictably, they will tell me how good it was to talk to me.
I have not told them one thing about myself.
But I have heard them.
I have shown interest in what interests them.
I have shown them that what they have to say matters.
So I don't need to tell them about me.
I have shown them.
