The Best Type of Business People

I met this guy that’s been in business for 20 years.
 He mostly talked the whole time.
 He thinks he knows everything and has no interest in learning anything else.
 After a small chat it was clear that he doesn’t have 20 years experience.
 He has one year of experience repeated 20 times.

On the flip side, I met this girl that’s been in business 5 years.
 She has an insatiable desire to learn and claims to know nothing.
 After a small chat it’s as if she has 20 years experience.

I’ve met a lot of business people in my life and the best ones are
 the ones who are humble, open and always learning.
