It’s a tough question.

One of the most significant factors in causing a business to fail is creating the product/service first, and the market (the need for the product/service) second.

Is it my ego, or is it me… I don’t know which it could be…

In 1973, I had some friends who started a rock and roll band and wrote the line above for a song with the same title. The line has stuck with me forever. I may be the only person on Earth who has a cassette recording of that song. But it makes a good point.

As far back as I can remember, my parents and teachers tried to teach me over and over again to be humble, to not brag or boast. I didn’t listen. I have been called egotistical, arrogant, and several other unflattering things in my life. I always make it a point to say thank you to the person that does this name-calling. To quote Will Rogers: If you done it, ain’t bragging.

The point I want to make here is that I don’t understand why people won’t tell the world about their accomplishments. It’s not wrong to be proud, if you’ve produced something good! In fact, it’s very positive behavior to tell about your accomplishments. It helps prepare you to try other things in life. For example, when your marketing effort proves successful, then you will be more likely to try something else.
