If you want to be treated like a professional, start acting like one.
Professional, yes I perform my work properly.
Am I willing to sit back and take it from the cubicle monkeys whom had the choice between sitting at a computer and working at Mcdonalds? Nope
You think there is any type of professionalism in this field, you clearly need to learn and or look closer.
Treated like a professional, here is how that works. I stomp you out of business then I am the utmost professional. Professionalism 101, I can move to your area, start a business, stomp you out as weak competition and then yes I have converted to full professionalism.
Change obviously doesn't happen at the bottom when you are working from the top. Clearly all levels, need a swift kick into reality. Like I said in my initial post
"We are Everywhere"
Now a few years ago I was given advice from an individual whom will not be named. What the party explained to me was that the only thing these people will understand is violence. There is clearly no way around that. While for a while I thought it was possible to make changes in other ways I was clearly wrong and I am now at a full understanding of such. As I assume many others are aware of as well.
Professionalism is this, I will spend 3 - 8 hours in the gym everyday. I will prepare and be ready for guerilla warfare, because while you say act professional, I know what professionalism is considered in this industry.
Not even kidding guerilla fn warfare. That is what everything in this industry is boiling down to, there is no light at the end of the tunnel I am sorry if you were unaware of this.
