Labels. We all use them. The honorable Judge Judy. Dr. Bob Bobullah, M.D. etc. Sometimes I am addressed as Aisha Iqbal, BA, MA, JD. Sometimes, Aisha Iqbal, Esquire. Last week I got a kick when a client sent me a letter and addressed it, Miss Aisha, Attorney at Law. Today I got some books in the mail from someone who connected with me via my blog. When I saw the address label:
XXX XXXX Lane
XXX, XX 54321
I had two reactions (1) I looked at it long and hard and (2) marveled at how this label was more accurate at capturing my essence than any other label I’ve thus far received. Me thinks I need to make some new business cards!
