fancy title

I was asked once, when reordering business cards, if I wanted to add a title other than my job title.  as a joke, I wrote Steven Burkard, Esq.

I was the only one who got the joke.

if it wasn’t a joke, and I was actually one step below a knight, would that make me better at what I do?  nope.

in today’s economy, fancy titles don’t work.  they limit thinking, either internally or externally.
