Laura Kalbag on Being Open

The most con­scious deci­sion I made about open­ness was to not put up a front and not always try to make myself look bet­ter. We all do things that make us look stu­pid from time to time (I do it a lot!). But what’s real­ly wrong with look­ing stu­pid? Why would I want to pre­tend to be super­hu­man? That would just set unre­al­is­tic expec­ta­tions for my clients and every­body else around me. 

Lau­ra is one of my favorite peo­ple. She’s real, she’s hum­ble, and crazy tal­ent­ed. That com­bi­na­tion of qual­i­ties have made her the suc­cess she is. In her col­umn today, on A List Apart, she does a great job explain­ing why being open and trans­par­ent is a very good thing.
