Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Making You

« Social Science as Applied to Commerce | Main | Conversations are Markets +5 »


Spot on!

So much of what we do is "abdication" of our rights as owners of our professional brand destiny.

You said it best; "Nobody is making you do anything you don't want to do."

Keep creating...your brand, your way,

This is salient to me these days, Valeria. I have been told a couple of times lately, "Do what the client tells you to," but the times I argue are the times when what they want flies in the face of good practices and my own values as a publicist. Maybe that's not good enough for some.

Murkier is recognizing the "slippery slope" times when I allow myself to be sucked into a dysfunctional situation that I am trying to avoid. I don't always see it coming (in my desire to put my best foot forward), then when I'm in it, I'm in too deep. Definitely not an overnight process!
