I think that it has always been most important what people feel about their experience when they are dealing with me for whatever it is that they came to me for in the way of images - either in the case of an assignment or for a piece of art and the fact that I call myself a business to me is really irrelevant in the sense that it is me the person dealing with another person or persons and somehow we mesh and become a team - at that point where things are really humming so to speak it is not one business and another business or a customer and my business but a real team focused on achieving the jointly agreed upon goal - and better -

as far as the word authentic and it's definition:

authentic |ôˈθentik| (abbr.: auth.)
1 of undisputed origin; genuine

I am not sure how what I described above can be anything but authentic and I suppose the question I asked was because the article and even your question asking - What is becoming more important? What you say about yourself (business) or what people say about you (business)?

is in a sense kind of curious as well - since both are and have been important elements to the whole picture as far as I can see - and they are neither of them becoming more or less important because someone has written an article on this topic -

I know for a fact that for years the same concepts and ideas have been presented year after year in magazines in different months rehashing the same subjects - perhaps with a bit of a different slant or a different flavor to the wording - but the subject matter remains basically the same - what is being said is not something new or revolutionary so to speak simply because it is being printed this month in the latest issue of whatever magazine or in this mornings yahoo news or the hottest blog on such and such subject and this is my point - because something is being emphasized or touted or accentuated or blasted at this point in time as the evolving newest order of things does not mean that anything has changed except for lots of people their knowledge of what is really very basic is finally really coming of age -

this is my take on things and that the networks mechanics spreads the news of ideas or technological breakthroughs a great deal faster than a magazine that comes out off - line and may take a bit longer and is more expensive for the readers to gain the knowledge or to have some ideas sink in this just allows for some knowledge *(perhaps) to spread a bit faster - but knowledge and common sense and good ideas and smart ideas are still that whether they are printed in an article in a newspaper or magazine or are written on the latest blog - these are simply different means of delivery and in one case over the other the means of delivery may be less expensive and faster - but they customer - provider relationship still has to take time to develop and that very often in many cases can only be done one on one individually - one step at a time -

therefore - what I say about my business (my philosophy) and the commitment that I have to carrying that out no matter what the environment that I am functioning in is like - and what the person or person's who are interested in satisfying their needs by coming to me for the fulfillment of those needs experiences are both as important and the spark must happen somewhere between the two concepts not on only one or the other side -
