I spent too much time bickering with people on the Internet this week. Shame on me, really. I’ve been on Twitter for 10 years, you would assume I know better by now. False.
That urge to fight back has always been a part of my personality. It started as early as kindergarten when I broke my arm fighting a boy who called my friend a name. Even at an early age, I wasn’t accepting the status quo or listening to critics. I could only hear that something was broken and I needed to fix it.
That fire has pushed me to do things I’m really proud of. It has also given me plenty of moments that still leave me wondering, “well wtf were you thinking?” I’m sure some of you have that personality, too. It’s probably why you like this newsletter in the first place.
This week, it led me to do something I’m really proud of. Despite private messages about my “reputation,” name-calling and all kinds of shady business - I stood up for all of the people who deserve to be compensated for speaking.
And no, I don’t think that’s too much to ask. I explained it in my post. I’m also sharing a workshop I’ll be offering on writing better job postings. That one is free. Finally, a letter from Russel Wilson to his offensive line that will remind you that we all need to stand up and recognize our people more.
Have a great week and don’t argue with people on Twitter -
