That ever-present voice in your head tells you that that people who push harder than you (or at all) are shameless, manipulative, highlighter-wielding self-promoting sleazeballs.
And the people who do less than you … well, they’re obviously just over-sensitive wallflowers who don’t know the first thing about promoting things.
Basically, no matter what you do (or don’t do, as the case may be), I can guarantee the following two scenarios:
1. There are going to be people who will think your marketing style is too aggressive, and others who will think it’s too subtle, and all of them will tell you that you’re doing it wrong.
2. You will be interacting with other people whose too-aggressive or too-subtle marketing style will really get on your own nerves, and you’ll be tempted to tell them that they’re doing it wrong.
The piece starts out with similar competing certainties about keeping kosher.
