What you may be doing by the way you describe yourself to buyers, is creating a pattern of belief or claim about you that may be negative; a pattern that requires overcoming a ‘hurdle of proof’. The end result: You will make buyers skeptical before they know you, and when they do hire you, if the smallest thing goes wrong, you will have validated their fear. Titles also need to change because sometimes you discover that the job title appears to be a ‘claim of status’, that leaves one feeling you have exaggerated.
Finally, web trends change very quickly, so you need to keep a sense of humor about it. Your title does not determine what you are, but your quality as a business will. Below, I would like to share some descriptions/titles that have been described to Voice123 customer service as 'exaggerated'. Keep in mind this applies to working online:
- seasoned professional
- big time
- "lightly marinated"
- "has the voice"
