2 – It undermines your credibility. (That assumes you had any to begin with….)
3 – It demonstrates you’re not 100% comfortable with what you’re saying/doing. (That would be accurate. This is all an adventure.)
Here’s the entire article.
This has absolutely nothing do with renovating a building or with 1651 Portland. I just thought I should address the use of the word in the very first post.
