They say the most engaging or exciting thing you can hear is your own name or the word YOU. And it starts so young.

Do you know what most brands do when they try to make a connection and sell. Talk about themselves. Does it work? Hell no! They’re essentially talking themselves up, rather than demonstrating an understanding of the client’s needs by talking about how they can help them specifically.
