Heroes: COVID-19 #6

I believe there are many opportunities presented to us by COVID-19. One of them is to be disabused of the notion that there are no heroes. No heroes? Really? Chances are you don’t have to look any farther than your own community, your own home, your own life to find them. My life is full of them. And the number keeps growing.

Let’s not forget the heroes all around us. And let’s not miss the opportunity to be a hero to someone in need.

Implacable Grandeur: COVID-19 #5

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.

  1. Thank you, Eileen. There was a caravan of cars traveling through our little town on Saturday (South Windsor, CT.) There must have been close to a hundred cars, decorated in every way imaginable, full of people holding signs and balloons, horns honking, with traffic stopped at intersections by the police department. The entire thing was to thank front-line folks like doctors, nurses, police, fire, EMTs, store clerks, et al. for their courage and their service. To quote John Mellencamp, ain’t that America?

  2. Mark,

    Love this video! So many people are doing what they can and love to do putting themselves on the front lines. Our “heroes” can help us get through times of crisis with hope and successful end results! At the same time, when we are battling an unknown, all the best efforts may lead to less than favorable endings. For those we can pray, comfort and reach out with love and understanding. Thank you for sharing! ~Eileen
