Reputation Is Always Being Earned.
To me reputation means focusing on how I act. In that way my reputation is always being earned and a good reputation is the foundation for my professional growth and my business. Having a great reputation is the golden key that opens doors to interesting people that I want to do business with or learn from.
Understanding all this means that I will act differently since my reputation is in the eyes of the beholder. I don’t own my reputation but I have the power to influence it.
