Partners, are you promoting yourself all the time when you meet other partners? What else do you talk about when you meet with other partners?

I introduce myself with "Hi, I'm MD1 and I sold $63M last year, nice to meet you."

I've also perfected the slight sneer when someone mentions selling less than that or is a noob partner asking noob partner questions. I'm tall, so that also makes it easy to literally look down my nose at the peon partners.

Promoting yourself all the time can seem a bit too irritating in my opinion. Although you can promote yourself but don't do it all the time. Just talk about how both of your days went, experiences, family...

I've been working remotely for the past two years, and it's been great. I love working from home and being able to watch my kids grow up through their eyes as they play around me. But sometimes, when you're in this kind of situation, it's hard to know what to talk about with your coworkers.

Some partners are so stupid. In a free market system, if you want the good associate to work for you, you need to be a nice person. Otherwise, I have enough partners to feed me work and you’re the source of your own problem.

This might be too ambiguous to answer, but I want to get better at taking iniative, but I don't know how. I can be pretty shy in work settings. I do things without being told, but I want to go beyond that like start projects etc. Provide more value.

I’m sure I’m blowing this out of proportion, but I don’t want to be weird or “uncool”. How would you write this message?
