So often it are little, inconsequential at the moment, things that can change the entire direction of a person's life.

Serving cocktails at a Christmas party one year for some extra pocket change resulted in a job that had me living on the French Riviera for three years.

The biggest take-away from this awesome story for me is the concept of reaping what you sow. Help others and you'll be helped - it's why so many experts say laid-off workers should be volunteering and helping others. When doing it with a genuine heart, they will reap their due reward!

Great story. I wrote a post on a similar theme....the most interesting opportunities I've encountered do not come out of purposeful "networking" but rather simply being friend, open, and seeking out smart and interesting people.
