What kind of professional do you want to work with? Check out some of the comments on this Agitator blog.

Whom do you want advising you? Someone who focuses on your expectations or someone who actually questions your expectations?

Do you want a trusted advisor who’ll be candid and honest and teach you and help you? Or do you want someone who tells you what you want to hear?

John Lepp, Agents of Good, tweeted this image. I love it!! John and I plan to start a group of kick-ass professionals who are trustworthy, candid, honest, teachers, doers, helpers. We promise to be all those words. We’re your nightmare sometimes. But mostly, we’re your dream come true because we help you learn and change and do better!

Worst Nightmare…

And how about the “unicorn in the balloon factory?”

Thanks to John for sharing that great statement from Seth Godin. Make sure you read Seth’s daily blog and his books.
