Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?
As a blogger, I don’t have much of a reputation yet. 20/20 Hines Sight was born December 15, 2013. I hope over the course of this blog it will showcase who I am (ridiculously honest, witty, outspoken, opinionated on practically everything, and I don’t shy away from a good healthy debate. Oh yeah and a crazy dry sense of humor.) And of course I hope it becomes wildly successful.
Outside of blogging, however, is quite a different
story. My reputation tends to precede me. People know me as not mincing my words. There’s a saying, “I say what I mean and I mean what I say.” If you don’t want to know what I have to say don’t ask.
At work I’m known for being reliable and having a good work ethic, but I’m also known for my honesty and not putting up with anyone’s crap. They know me as an advocate for the underdog and going to bat for those that need an extra vote. Folks also know I don’t let my work friendships stand in the way of me writing you up or terminating you. I make it abundantly clear that work is work and if it boils down to you or me, I will always choose me.
