Love Means Business

I’m grateful for: a day much warmer than yesterday.

Thank you to: Julie for always having my back.

Something loving: Mary Jaksch: “Many people see a pitch as an exercise in manipulation. That is, they focus on how to get the other person to do what they want. That attitude is sure to fail. The key to a successful pitch is honesty and respect.” Well, and a little self-promotion and name-dropping, as she goes on to describe. I’d never really thought about lessons I’d been taught from society around pitching as being a form of power rather than approaching business with love.
