Be nice. Or else.
I've only recently subscribed to this logic, and have always in the past maintained separate personal and work to-do lists.
My problem was that I was allowing clients to access my to-do lists and that was my main source of frustration (the feeling that I'm not in control of it).
Now I don't let clients even see my to-do lists, and keep everything in Trello. Problem solved.
I totally get where you are coming from with this — even though I don't necessarily feel the same way about certain things — and I do agree with some of the comments that it comes off like it was written from a defensive standpoint. Almost out of anger, even.
We tried to communicate the same thing, check it out and maybe you can pick something up to incorporate into your page: https://sprawsm.com/terms-of-service/
"Don't get it wrong - I am not your employee - and you are not my boss." Actually, you are - and they are.
No they are not. What Lior is aiming at with this as far as I can tell, is that he wants to make it known that a client can't apply the same principles and expectations towards him, as he may do to their employees. E.g. if he requires his employees to check email outside business hours, he can't make Lior do the same, as he runs his own ship.
All in all, I think it is good that you want to be up front with your potential clients, I would just rethink the tone and try not to sound bitter, like you've had it rough (even though you very well may have).
Wow, you can't imagine how timely it is that I stumbled on this link. Thanks for making it!
There's also Papyrus, serving the same purpose:
Still early to tell, but the general response has been positive.
I'm looking forward to doing a writeup on it as soon as I can.
This is something we're very much looking forward to experimenting with in 2017.
With the relaunch of our company website, we've launched our first initiative towards productized services called Microawesome.
It will be really interesting to see how it pans out.
I would personally appreciate a simple flag icon. I.E. if enough users have flagged something as content marketing, display an icon.
However, I do agree that it's a fine line between companies offering valuable information, and blatant promotion. So maybe a "value" flag should be a better name for it?
we've just redesigned our company website (it's the sixth redesign since 2007) and I'd love to hear the community's thoughts on it.
There are things that are sort of half-baked — like the blog — but we'll be working on that as we go along. We found that it's more important for us to have something where we'll be able to publish to, rather than waiting several months to "get it right".
This looks really interesting to me, as a designer. All the little quirks, outdents, and colors.
However, I would find it really surprising if this design is getting positive comments from the general Bloomberg-reading crowd. I personally imagine them going ”WTF is this?!” when they land to read an article, but the list view — link from the title — is something I think they would find especially confusing.
The work of the artists and designers they are representing is completely off the hook. So much good stuff in there.
Be nice. Or else.
