Want To Be Taken Seriously As A Consultant? Don’t Do This.

The last thing you want to do is blow up your own message – right?

It may sound old-school, but: yes, spelling matters.

For crying out loud, the squiggly line is telling you to spell-check. No only do you fail to do so, you actually use the screen shot highlighting your error??

This, in an article about how to be a high-priced consultant.

Here’s STEP 10 – Don’t shoot yourself in the foot if you’re trying to run a race.

(now, off to spell-check this blog post before pressing Publish….!)

    Steve- I agree with you on the spelling errors. Although I am not perfect and I make many spelling errors, if a document is published, it should be free of spelling errors. I think that you lose a lot of credibiity when your document has these errors in it. I think that using Spell Check is essential. I also think that the document needs to be read by someone else, other than the author, to make sure that it reads well and that words aren’t missing.

    I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not perfect in my spelling errors either, that’s why I usually have someone review all my content before I send it out. I do agree that spelling errors make anything look less than professional and if you want to be taken seriously, you need to have all of your ducks in a row. Thanks for the article-interesting read.
