Enough About Me. How Do You Like Me So Far?
When I decided to “go solo” and start AlexanderG Public Relations, LLC, I asked some trusted friends for some direct and candid answers to one question:
Knowing me (and my work) as you do, would you hire me and why?
Trust me, these are some very close friends. They are the type of friend who will tell you your breath isn’t so fresh or that you look like you got dressed in the dark. Both have also worked with me in professional capacities as colleagues and/or clients. Now, I’m not going to sprain my elbow by engaging in personal backslapping (please read my testimonials page for some very kind words), nor will I go the self-immolation route by reporting anything that wasn’t me at my best. What I will say is that I was humbled and pleased that yes, they would hire me. I particularly liked these statements:
You’re dedicated to your project. You’re insightful and can get extremely focused.
I like these statements because it indicates I’m in the right line of work. Dedication, insight and focus are all byproducts of doing what you love. If you love what you do, chances are you do great work. That’s what I offer my clients.
Okay. I will reveal one “negative” comment a friend made:
Your love of Halloween is a little creepy. Did you really have children just so you could go Trick or Treating again?
