I am getting better about the fact people actully know me before they know me. It happens more often now. When I go to local business functions or similiar, people I have not met, know me. “Hi, Joshua Strebel, nice to meet you” and they say ” Yea, I know you from such-and-such”.
It is a nice thing. Nearly 4 years into running my own business and I still trip up on myself sometimes. I find it funny there is this person “Joshua Strebel” whom owns a business and people care about what he says. People trust him with large sums of money, and thier own business future. Younger professionals even ask for an interview.
I am that person, I am Josh.
