03 Oct Day 2 in NYC: Are Texans Really Nicer?
Dear Friends, Family, & Partners of CHRON (Zenergy):
As you may or may not know, I spent this past week in the Big Apple on CHRO business. Well, I just wanted to take a moment to share some of my informal thoughts on my experiences in NYC, some of which are unrelated to business but certainly important to me personally. Anyway, without further ado, I thought I’d start with this short but telling story about how Texas and Texans are perceived up north.
As we were exiting our very first meeting with one of the large Private Equity groups located in New York’s Upper West Side, we encountered a gentleman boarding the same elevator with us. I commented on his shoes, which led to a friendly discussion back and forth. As we parted ways, he asked us where we’re from and, of course, we all proudly blurted out, “TEXAS!” Almost as if it was a race. He then replied, “Ah, well, that explains why you guys are so nice.”
As a born and bred Texas boy, I certainly would like to think that we indeed are the nicest and most considerate state in the nation. In reality, I think of you just show yourself friendly, people will respond in kind.
