I am just finishing up my second week at my new job. In a new city. In a new state. I have a lot of advantages over many other people who start a new job, as it's at a different property and division of the same company so even though many things are different, I at least know what questions to ask.
But that's not what I'm writing about today. I moved to a different area of the country (The Western Carolina's) and am slowly learning my way around. So today when I was walking back to my office in Spartanburg from having lunch, a couple of gentleman stopped me on the street and asked me "Hey, are you from around here?" Well, I had to say "Yes, I'm new, but I'm from around here." They were looking for a place in Downtown to eat and I was happy to recommend a little restaurant that I had eaten at a couple of days before.
You see, it's not about how long you live somewhere or about how many people you know, it's just about how willing you are to share the knowledge you have. And today I thought "I may not know much, but I can help these guys out".
