Agents of Ourselves: Part Eighteen

During last week’s meeting of Finding Your Voice, our writing workshop with Laura Staley, Maribel Cardez, Yvonne Jones, and Tom Dietzler, we had yet another characteristically beautiful moment. The conversation compelled one of us to share — beautifully, courageously, vulnerably — some recent, very difficult experiences. The reactions were uniformly caring, compassionate, and reassuring.

We will help that member through this difficulty. We will. By some miracle that needs neither questioning nor explaining, that’s what we do. It’s what we’ve done since day one of the workshop. We’re agents of ourselves and supporters of each other.

No hesitation. No judgment. No conditions.

What occurs to me as yet another miracle that needs neither questioning nor explaining is the fact that I created this video the day before we met last week:

If something that amazing occurs, why would you even try to explain it?

I’m a business owner. My company — O’Brien Communications Group (OCG) — is a B2B brand-management and marketing-communication firm that helps companies position their brands effectively and persuasively in industries as diverse as: Insurance, Financial Services, Senior Living, Manufacturing, Construction, and Nonprofit. We do our work so well that seven of the companies (brands) we’ve represented have been acquired by other companies. OCG is different because our business model is different. We don’t bill by the hour or the project. We don’t bill by time or materials. We don’t mark anything up. We don’t take media commissions. We pass through every expense incurred on behalf of our clients at net. We scope the work, price the work, put beginning and end dates on our engagements, and charge flat, consistent fees every month for the terms of the engagements. I’m also a writer by calling and an Irish storyteller by nature. In addition to writing posts for my company’s blog, I’m a frequent publisher on LinkedIn and Medium. And I’ve published three books for children, numerous short stories, and other works, all of which are available on Amazon under my full name, Mark Nelson O’Brien.
