Swatting Flies

I'm a big believer in the old adage that you can "catch more flies with honey. " I'm a Southern girl. I have several well-worn editions of Emily Post's Etiquette. I still say "yes ma'am" and "no ma'am." I like to believe that people are honest and kind and good. And I've handled many a sticky work situation--including The Devil Wears Prada-type bosses, sneaky photographers, drunk concert patrons, nosy journalists and loud-mouthed clients--with grace and ease.

But if the honey isn't working, don't be afraid to get out the fly swatter. Stand up for yourself, for your business and for your ideals, and people will listen! And respect you all the more for it.
