    • I could’ve made a list of 100, but wanted to make this concise and keep consistent with other lists I’ve put together.

      Thanks for the comments, Bridget!

  1. I’d add to number two: “Are we aligned?” I can’t count the number of times I hear thay every day, though I try very hard not to say it myself.

    And what about being better than 98 percent of Americans at dealing with rejection? I’d like to see a Harris survey on that. Man, I’d even volunteer to pitch it myself!

  2. Had to comment that #5 is my favorite. I have taken my mother to work; walked her through my job for years! And still crack up when I hear her trying to explain my job to someone! This list was great.

  3. You find yourself trying to figure out which company pitched the article you’re reading/segment you’re viewing.

  4. Watching a show or reading an article and thinking “darn, my client should have been in this!” or “This would be great to pitch my client”

  5. How about — you’ve lost count of the number of times your clients have told you they think their story is right for Oprah.
