False perceptions of ourselves

An interesting post on the NABA Facebook page raised many eyebrows a couple days ago.  The member posted that there should be a commercial to prove to clients that they could not function without our services.  In short, he was stating that clients are that dependant upon us that they could not function.  The comments …

Be ready to Send NOW

The other day I requested a resume from a specialist whereby he/she referred me to their Linkedin page.  I was disappointed in the fact that we have allowed social media to make us lazy and de-personalize ourselves from personal interaction.  Has social media been the microwave equivalent to a good ole home cooked meal?  Yes! …
