The Photographer's Guide to Self-Promotion: "Have you ever been told by your parents “Don’t talk about yourself too much; people won’t like you!” or “Don’t show off!”? Talking too much about your achievements leads not only to criticism, but can also lead to disappointment. There is always going to be someone who worked harder and who has done more than you. The minute you realize you’ve achieved so much in your personal and work life, the reality smacks you and shows you that you’re too big for your boots. Some of us engage in far too much self-adulation and bragging, while the rest of us are afraid of being criticized and afraid to talk about ourselves."
