You know the saying about how a person may forget what you did, but they won’t forget how you made them feel? Well, I have not seen or heard from or even about Andy Dallin. Ever since the first few months of the Memphis Grizzlies’ move to Memphis, Tennessee in the summer of 2001.
He was a consultant hired to help with the team’s transition from Vancouver. I was part of a group of temporary salespeople hired to sell as many season tickets as we possibly could before the season started that November.
I don’t think it was intentional, but most of the permanent staff didn’t take the time to get to know us, temporary folks.
Everyone was super busy. I mean we worked day and night as well as on weekends. And I understand it wasn’t a priority to make friends with people who would probably be gone in a couple of months.
But I’ll never forget Andy Dallin smile and how kind and understanding he was to us even though most of us would not be with the team long.
In this episode of S.O. What! Success Stories I reconnect with Andy after over 20 years, and you’ll be reminded of why we can’t judge a book by its cover.
