Not the right one

So recently I did an update of my bleesed bath salts and I have actually had some meetings with investors for small sums just to see if I can get some things going a little quicker. Brought my business plan to them, the numbers of possible sales, other companies in the field, profit margins, creation, possible advertising possibilities.I thought it was going well we had a good long discussion and what felt like suddenly to me was them saying thy like the plan. They like what it could build to and they think it can be done. They just believe that I am not the person for it, and due to that they would not invest.

I thanked them for the time, but inside I was boiling. I wasn’t the right guy. It rang in my head over and over. Until after that night I was up because it just made me mad. I wasn’t depressed at the time I thought I could pull it off. Now, for those who don’t know I do have bouts of depression where that feeling does come up and I do second guess myself.

It didn’t happen here. I couldn’t feel bad for myself. I am sure that it wil swing that way later but I made it through before and I will again. Dismissing someone as not good enough though made me wonder something for the future of my own businesses.

People nowadays go through life at speeds that taking in all the details, the little nuances of characters can be lost. It is after all through small nuances that different things can be found, tried, and applied and checked against the status quo to see what works best.

The possibility of a nuanced indidividual not being what people expect for a certain position and still have the skills made me think that workforce issues really boils down more to a workplace issue as well.

I really need to stop thinking of such things when people yell at me about how big their deposit is at work.
