On Friday, the most beautiful cake was delivered from a baker friend of mine (you really should get a friend who’s a baker, it’s awesome!) as a thank you gift. While this blog post IS to brag about the amazing cake, it’s also a great lesson in paying attention…
A couple of weeks ago she tweeted that she’d been laid off from her job. Big bummer, right before the holidays, never a good thing. I re-tweeted her post to my network, and within a few minutes, a friend of mine saw it and asked if she’d be interested in getting connected with Zaarly Storefront which is launching at the end of the month here in Seattle!
it’s the PERFECT match! She gets a photo shoot of all her delicious baked goods, they have a fantastic baker to promote (a very popular Zaarly Storefront Service), and as a thank you, I get to eat an entire cake!
The Lesson here? Pay attention. Keep an eye on what friends and those in your network are saying. Share it with others in your network, you never know who you might be helping out!
