My answer to How do I find a balance between promoting my work and not sounding boastful?
Answer by Ken Larson:
Remember growth is a function of persistence and foresight.
Know where your market is headed and get their first – then write and speak about your success indirectly by helping others.
Demonstrate humility and a satisfaction in helping others succeed. They will find ways to give you credit.
There are ways of tooting your horn without making peoples' lights go out.
