The biggest lesson I learned is that i didn’t have to be a “yes man” anymore. At my time at agency, we worked under the assumption that the client is always right, and for even the craziest requests, you made it work no matter what. When I switched, I learned didn’t have to say yes to everybody in house, and had to work on saying no and setting realistic boundaries based on my/my teams bandwidth. in-house, you often field more requests from outside the marketing dept and the individuals’ direction/asks may not be realistic - they are not marketing experts or clients. I have gotten really good at pushing back 😅

Heading into 2023, here are some phrases I'm eliminating:

1. "No worries."
2. "No problem."
3. "Sorry to bother you."
4. "Does this make sense?"
5. "Sorry, I'll fix that right now."

Here's what I'm replacing them with: ⤵
1. My pleasure.
2. Of course, happy to help.
3. When you have a minute, can I get your opinion on ____?
4. Does this help you clarify things?
5. Thank you for catching that! 

Words are powerful.

Use it wisely.
