I never got picked first or second for kickball. I wasn’t on the academic awards honor roll. I was not top of the class. I didn’t get chosen to sing at the 8th grade graduation ceremony. I was too busy loitering in the parking lot to win most likely to succeed. But lately I’ve felt like queen of the prom.
I might be know affectionately as a smart a** except for the fact that I keep those comments to myself – thus the regular smile on my face. After a particularly long and annoying day, I let the big mouth out by posting Commission Bashing. Having that old tape running that I was too stupid to have an opinion and I should shut up, there was a little knot in my stomach. Then something completely unexpected happened. I got noticed. Thanks to some influential folks already established in this arena – like Jay Thompson – the snowball got rolling and it’s been downhill ever since.
As a new contributor to agentgenius.com I have been given the gift of finding my voice again. It’s a reminder that you never know what kind of an impact you’re having on those you touch.
