You might want to go on red alert status when you hear the word CHORE.

You do not want to described as a chore. You don’t want to be in possession of chores. You don’t want to have chores in your future. The only time you want to be involved in chores is when they are in the past tense.

The word you want to bring up when someone says chores is opportunities. Someone might say we have to talk about the chores. That’s when you should say, you would like to talk about opportunities. Look them dead in the eye and say you see a lot of opportunity here. They will know you mean business, and you will have asserted your dominance.

I help people articulate what makes their service exciting, meaningful, and valuable to their stakeholders by identifying why they want to serve, what they are most proud of, what challenges they want to take on, and how they plan on showing results. I do that by researching issues, identifying clear positions, helping them align their positions with what their customers want, and managing work flow to deliver efficiently and effectively. In the future, I'd love to help companies improve on how they communicate with their customers.
