But this is haaarrrd for me.

I'm a teacher.It's what I do. I teach adults.

None of my clients came to me to learn.

They want referrals--but they don't want to have to do anything different, or uncomfortable or hard to get them.

It happened again this morning: Twenty-five people at the table. Several asking for the leftover handouts; several saying thank you; and one (Again . . . this isn't the first time for her. That's common too.) who interrupted a conversation with two other people to make sure we all knew that this is haaarrrd for her.

Okay. So?

I have to do some shower thinking about this.

What are her options here? And what are mine?
