Agents of Ourselves: Part Thirty-Seven

After taking a hiatus the week before, our writing group, Finding Your Voice, reconvened last week with all hands on deck — Yvonne Jones, Laura Staley, Maribel Cardez, Tom Dietzler, and yours truly. We started off by smiling a lot, followed by expressing how much we’d missed each other.

Then we did what we always do: We shared. We compared notes on caring for aging parents. We talked about cognitive decline and whether it necessarily equated to Alzheimer’s Disease. We talked about my working with a client, a psychologist, who specialized in neurofeedback training. While that psychologist treated young people with learning and behavioral disorders, we wondered if such treatment could benefit elderly people whose brains might benefit from neurofeedback training.

At one point, Yvonne, our oasis of serenity, said she was starting to feel dizzy for some reason. She excused herself to go rest for a bit. We all wished her well. She reported later in the week that whatever it was had passed as quickly as it had come on. But we’re all looking forward to connecting again this week to see Yvonne for ourselves and to make sure she’s okay.

We ended the call as we always do: We expressed our love for each other.

People have been telling me for years I live a charmed life. I never knew what they were talking about.

I do now.

Mark O'Brienhttps://obriencg.com/
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.
