I’m amused that you were turned off by writing for your own financial gain; is it that commonly negative opinion of marketing and advertising?

I never really thought about marketing until I tried to do it. By nature, I am quiet and reserved. To go out and constantly try to call attention to a product I created, felt really against my nature. Lesson learned. Selling/promotion, especially for myself is not my strong suit. I am pretty good at talking up other people’s stuff though.

As for negative thoughts about marketing — nah. I’ve just grown to understand it better. I’ve learned that marketing is touching people where they feel, not where they think.

Creative?? That’s not me. You must be talking about my sister. I am the one who is given a task with set parameters, and then shows up and does it. Haha! Oh — the stories we are told and believe about ourselves.

Thanks for your thoughts — and for listening to mine.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
