Never give up

"Buy from me, buy from me..." With good English accent, this little girl approached me and asked me to buy from her. It is very competitive in Hoi An in selling paper cup candles. Some families even asked their children to sell these on the streets. To strive for a living, they have to enter the cruel business world earlier than other kids in other parts of the world. With an innocent heart, they repeat the same sentence to every tourist they encounter. They can be really persistent, following you anywhere until you buy a candle from her. Their persistence should be learnt and applied in daily work.
