Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

To whomever sent me the following email:

"Thanks for joining My CoolWorks. Regarding your blog post, we wish you all the luck in the world in building your business but we work hard to build ours and our intent is not for it to serve as your billboard."

I was not trying to use your blog as "my billboard." Maybe I did not realize what your site was for, as I was just introducing myself. For future reference, before addressing me with a nasty email, watch the way you say your words. This would have been more appropriate:

"Thank-you for joining CoolWorks. We have read your blog post, and we wish you luck in building your business. Please keep in mind that our blog is not intended for advertising your business, but for your to reach out and connect with people and share your stories. We value you as a CoolWorks member, and look forward to seeing you on the blog!"

This would have been more appropriate. Thank-you.

Hi Michelle,

My apology for the lack of tact. Your words are better chosen. I did identify myself so I'll fess up to the World here since you chose to share outside of the email exchange - I am the sender.

I do mean well, I do try hard, and I am imperfect, falling embarrassingly short at times in communication skills, finesse, and decision making.

It's hectic around here, your post hit us wrong, I elected to deal with it, I was hasty and I struck a nerve.

My apologies.

We value you as a My CoolWorks member, and look forward to seeing your contributions to the community!
