The Most Awkward Conversation in America

by leslie

I want to share with you a conversation that is happening every day in America.  This is a conversation that you have had, that you friends have had and that we would all prefer to avoid.  It is –
 
The Most Awkward Conversation in America
 
The conversation happens as follows.  You discover that another person you know has lost their job.  It seems like this is happening almost every day.  Friends, relatives, neighbors and business acquaintances – it’s epidemic. 
 
How do you handle their request for help when they attempt to network out of their current situation?  What do you say?  What can you do to help?  What suggestion can you offer them that might be a positive path they could explore?
 
In many cases, you know for a fact that these are wonderful, talented people who are simply victims of current economic circumstances.  They will deliver great value wherever they end up next, but unemployment is rising so fast that no one knows when or where that might be.  

There is one positive suggestion you could offer.  While they are exploring all their other options, perhaps they should also look into the idea of owning their own franchise business.
 
I’d like to help them.  My consulting service offers a comprehensive assistance program for people who would like to explore this option.  Whether a person decides that a franchise is the right option for them or not, I stand ready to do whatever we can to make their research and investigation be as focused and effective as possible.
  
Best of all, my service is both low pressure and free of cost.  It is all about helping people make the right decision.  All your friends would risk is a little of their time and that’s one thing they now have plenty of.  My service represents a very positive suggestion you can offer the next time you get into one of these awkward conversations. 
 
If you find yourself in this type of awkward conversation, consider introducing me to your friend.  I am able to provide thoughtful advice and solid alternatives in this time of change. Forward their name and phone number – I will do the rest with both discretion and professionalism.
