No one important

You are not "no one important."
A young woman I was sitting next to was introduced to a "big name" in social media. She said her name, then she said, "no one important."

I interrupted and shared with the "big name" a few of the cool things the young woman had told me she does.

After the "big name" moved on, I couldn't hold it in any longer. "You will never introduce yourself that way again. Never." I told her how she would introduce herself, including one or two of the coolest things she was working on, things that would open lines for further conversation. I have no idea if she took that advice or not.

I don't care who you are, or whether you have a "big name" or not. You are not "no one important."


  1. You rock, Becky. You are so great at encouraging people. I love that you told her that. You are right. I hope she listens to you. :-)

  2. Rock on sister, rock on. We all matter.

  3. been on the receiving end of your pep talks, they are always right on! thanks for always being such a help to others,
