Do ever ever stop and think about how you introduce yourself, about what that title you’ve slapped on yourself says about you, when people in your industry know what it is you do.
Anybody can be a CEO these days. The title is so bandied about that it’s almost become the new word for “unemployed with a project”.
I received this today via the contact form on my blog today. I’ve removed the identifiable information, but it just goes to highlight how ridiculously over used the title of CEO is.
