As someone with experience travelling around the globe meeting WordPress professionals, one of things he would like to share with us is;

People prefer to portray themselves more than having someone else portray them. Even if the portrayal is a good one, people appreciate being able to use their own voice to tell the world who they are. I discovered this by accident with HeroPress. I don’t tell people’s stories, I help them tell their own story, and people find it to be much more meaningful, like they’re in control of their own destiny.
