Monday, August 26, 2019 – Step up to the plate and take your place among the movers and shakers. Expressing original and bold ideas, rather than parroting party lines, can win you new fans today. However, reality could throw you a few curveballs, so accept that you might not hit it out of the park every time at bat. If you’re sensing any resistance, postpone pitch meetings, as you won’t likely get the response you expect. One of your brilliant ideas may be dismissed or a solid proposal is rejected. Be pragmatic in your dealings now; sticking to the facts is wise. Half the work is just showing up.
