This article, “How to Cope When You’re in a Dying Industry“, made me laugh out loud. I love how she was trying to help her mugger figure out how to make money when it turns out she wasn’t carrying any cash. Some people just don’t want to be helped.
Hope, or doing more of the same faster and harder with no change in the result, is not a strategy. When you’re not making money anymore, and people are trying to help, maybe it’s time to listen.
