ActiveRain as Kitchen Cabinet

Russian dolls

Russian friends told me about their sounding board or personal Board of Directors, which they called their Kitchen Cabinet (this was back in the times that they would gather in someone's kitchen thinking they would be least likely to be eavesdropped on there).

We all can benefit from a Kitchen Cabinet, and not only when there are BIG issues to be considered. Today I posted on an Autoresponder for Blog Comments and received a LOT of responses. What came out very strongly was not just whether the commenters were pro or con, but how they felt.

Clients and potential clients, as well as colleagues, may not remember what you said, but they will definitely remember how you made them feel.

 

This is so much better than testing an idea and possibly alienating prospective clients.

When we don't have a sounding board or Kitchen Cabinet, we can be blindsided by looking at just one aspect of a decision. Thanks to all of you for being my sounding board, for preventing a waste of time and poor results. This is just one more reason I'm grateful for Active Rain and all of you that make it what it is!

Sharon, great point and one I wish people would remember more often.  I try to look at things from several angles and often seek other opinions.  It is a great way of learning.
