Agents of Ourselves: Part Ten

I’m as happy as I am humbled to announce that our writing workshop, Finding Your Voice, which was supposed to have ended last Thursday, will continue. By popular demand, and with the grateful consent of yours truly, our intrepid members — Laura Staley, Maribel Cardez, Yvonne Jones, and Tom Dietzler — have elected to soldier on.

Starting this week and continuing indefinitely, we’ll be working at writing our stories, based on various prompts to which we’ll agree each week. For this week’s session, we’ve agreed to write about something, anything — personal or professional — with which we had difficulty contending.

I knew we’d find our voices in the workshop. I had no idea we’d find friends, confidants, and kindred spirits. And I certainly would never have expected the kinds of courage and vulnerability we’ve all shared and experienced with each other.

Life is good.

Tell your stories.

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.
