One of the hardest things, and I would describe more as a soft skill, is to leave your demographic in your brain, and look at something through the eyes of the average slob

I'm pretty good at a number of things. This is one area I haven't got a clue.

The only classes I had trouble with when getting my MBA were the Marketing classes. Absolutely nothing the professor said, nothing written in the textbooks made any sense at all to me.

The only reason I passed the class was through the efforts of my study group and our projects. I could help with measuring marketing response rates. That was about it.

Thanks for trying, but you may as well try to teach an elephant to tap dance.
