Kris Wolfe: She Was Just a Receptionist

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Recently, my husband and I attended a conference for motorcycle dealers from all over the country. It was a 2-day event, held in a hotel with meals and speaking/training carefully coordinated.

I met the lady who did all of the planning on the way into the opening dinner and then happened to be seated next to her. Everyone was introducing themselves and their lofty titles with the company, so I asked her, “What is your official title?” She said, “Oh I’m just a receptionist. I’m no one important.”

What?

Just a receptionist? But being important is not the same as looking important. And being important has a lot more to do with who we are than who we appear to be.
