Thanks for the post Michel. I like your spin on this. Always interesting posts.
Quick takeaway: Learn to spin your existing high-leverage accomplishments when selling yourself, instead of always trying to do something bigger and better._________________________________________________________________When it comes to what we’ve accomplished, we tend do think we’ve never done enough.
