Agents of Ourselves: Part Twenty-Four

In one of our earlier sessions of our Wednesday writing workshop, Finding Your Voice, Yvonne Jones said, when she was in school, she loved Visitor’s Day. Laura Staley, Maribel Cardez, Tom Dietzler, and I agreed. So, we invited, the man, the myth, the legend, Dennis Pitocco, to join us. And join us he did for a typically spirited conversation and a genuine convening of hearts.

Well, we had so much fun that time, we decided to follow the advice of Steely Dan.

Chances are you’re already familiar with the gentleman who joined us last week. You likely know about or have seen work. If not, let this be your introduction. I’m not about to tell you who it is. You have to watch the video for that. Whatta ya think, we’re giving stuff away around here?

I will tell you this, though: He’s living proof that nice guys do NOT finish last.

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.
