No one knows what anyone else does

I'm at an interesting intersection of writing, marketing, and technology. And I hear different shades of the same sentiment over and over.

Nobody knows what marketing does.

Nobody knows what technical writers do.

Nobody knows what IT does.

And from my old life: Hey, what does a landman do anyway?

Apparently no one knows what anyone else does.

So don't be afraid to tell people what you do. It may seem obvious to you. But don't be so sure it is to others.
