What’s your job title?

The great Mitch Hedberg had a joke about naming kitchen appliances.

When coming up with its title, just figure out what it does and then add “er” to the end.

A refrigerator. A toaster. A blender.

The same goes for your job title.

What’s yours?

A lawyer. A retailer. A jeweler. A founder. A web entrepreneur. A firefighter.

All great job titles.

What about the job titles that don’t necessarily denote compensation?

A leader. A mother. A father. A mentor. A dog lover.

THOSE are the important jobs titles — the ones that get carved into your tombstone.
