Emails can be a mine field of misunderstandings, counter balanced with the need to be polite to other humans who – in any normal circumstances – you most likely wouldn’t meet up with for a coffee let alone a three-hour meeting/business lunch.

In PR it’s all about your ability to smile through the stressful times, keep your cool, and be polite.

You can probably apply several of these to other industries too of course.

        True … true. I hate that I’ve become as jaded as I have out in the work world, but it is just a defense mechanism one builds up over time.
