If your company doesn't appreciate & give the "thumb's up" for you to be "you", jump ship. Your boss should smile BIG when you say "I've got an idea."
Perhaps the greatest value prop you bring is your personal genius. It's not perfect but it's 100% unique. No one can pitch like you. It's your #DNA
, your "one & only " awesome personality. Raw organic flair. I get it, not everyone is going to like it & buy it. But some will. And I bet these buyers will be life-long friends and loyal #customers
! Isn't that what you're after? The intriguing way you connect, the data you mine & present and the powerful actions you take produce rare and scarce value to the market. This is you! Maybe we should scrap the thought of being liked and be unapologetically authentic.
Which begs the question - are you uniquely brilliant? And thus impossible to be replaced? No one loves the client, solves the client's problems & exceeds the client's needs LIKE YOU DO. If we are not the first person that the market thinks about when our sector is being discussed, but shame on us, right?
We MUST be uniquely THE BEST. This Thanksgiving will be a hard marker for advancement. God bless & happy #thanksgiving
