How to Walk Away From An Opportunity That Is All Wrong For You

Feeling bored sounds like a “walk away” signal to me.

So…what’s the best way to walk (or run)?

1. Don’t be surprised if your interviewer or client responds with, “Thank you! We appreciate your honesty.”

2. Plan for the response, “Oh no — don’t go!”

3. Create a neutral explanation that’s mutually face-saving and final.

4. Recognize that you will (most likely) be burning bridges.

5. Revive your networking, sales activity, and application processes.

Bottom Line:

Helping entrepreneurs and independent professionals grow their businesses one story at a time.
