Anyway, I was planning to stay out of this conversation, but being one of those passionate and outspoken individuals, I just can't help myself.
I've been called many things, but the well-intended labels have included those such as "rock star," "expert," "influencer," "famous," "hero," etc. If you've followed me online for awhile, this will come as no surprise to you, but all of those labels make me extremely uncomfortable simply because they are not true, and I worry that there is an expectation of me that I just can't deliver. There are so many people who deserve those labels, and I am definitely not one of them.
There is one term that I have been assigned to me recently that I will accept, and that is "Connected." Perhaps Connected is the new Rock Star? I'll take it.
