Age-Old Advice

For some reason, I found myself thinking back to my first day in the corporate world today.  I was a young 22-year-old who knew nothing about HR, other than what I had read in a textbook.  After a few minutes of getting settled at my desk, my boss asked to see me.

When I walked into her office, she looked at me and said, “I’m going to give you some advice.  This is the best advice I can ever give you.  This advice was once shared with me too.”  She went on to say, “Don’t touch the money.  Don’t touch anybody.  And if you’re going to sleep with someone, sleep up.”

I’m sure the look on my face was priceless.  But in thinking back, that advice was pretty accurate!  LOL.  To be honest, even in 2010, those comments would probably be solid advice to a new hire, wouldn’t they?  Ah, memories…
