Delete This Word from Your Biz Vocabulary: Assignments

Another word to lose from your biz vocabulary: “assignments.”

You are reinforcing the wrong perception that you are an employee by using that word in your marketing message and client education.

You’re not a temp. Clients don’t “assign” work to you. They submit and you accept (or decline or refer, as the case might be) work requests.

The language of business and professional respect is required in a business relationship of equals.
