I have to admit, I was a bit honored. Yesterday, I was in the car on the way to another branch office to do a presentation, along with the boss of a firm I’m working at and our driver. Amidst the conversation, she [the boss] asked me about my past work history.
Although usually, I try not to talk about it, I mentioned starting our magazine and how the whole thing unfolded. After listening to it, she turned and said: “You know, Boris, I think that you should just stay in Tajikistan. I am planning to start a laundromat chain, as there are none on the city, and I could use a few reliable people to run it. Yep, you should stay.”
My mind went “Hmm… interesting. There really aren’t any places to do laundry out here – maybe it could work!”
I always knew that there are opportunities out there if you just expose yourself to them. Although sometimes they aren’t quite what you expect.
If only I didn’t have my other commitments… :)
