Cartoon: Been There, Done That

business cartoon

“Been there, done that” is sort of an old phrase. Not old like, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”  But out-of-fashion old like, “Gag me with a spoon.”

So I have to admit, when this business cartoon came to me, I was a little hesitant about it. But the idea of “been there, done that” on a resume was too hard to resist.

And now I can move on to Gangnam Yolo. That’s a thing, right?

  1. Pretty cool looking cartoon there Mark. Cartoons have been and continue for years to be a great way to brand yourself and couldn’t help but notice as well that you have been featured in Forbes And Wall Street which are well known.

  2. Why the hesitation – I loved it! I wouldn’t say the expression is so old, and I thought it was funny the way it was used. If only it worked that way!
