My nephew and I were going for a bike ride recently when he asked me what I did for work.
Working in Digital Marketing, we’re used to the challenge of explaining our jobs to our friends and family (what, do you run the Google?). I usually find that telling a real life story helps get the message across…
So, I asked my nephew (who is 11), “What would you do if your toilet got blocked?”.
The conversation went like this:
Me: What would you do if your toilet got blocked?
Nephew: Well I’d find a plumber of course!
Me: Where would you find the plumber?
Nephew: I’d go into town.
Me: Into town? What, like all the plumbers are just lining up on a side street waiting for people to come and give them work?
Nephew: Ooohh… Well, maybe I could look them up on the computer?
Good thing we can help all those plumbers (& other businesses) lined up in town waiting for people to come find them…
