Great post @jamesmh ! Wanted to highlight this part:

Quickly, I became the "go-to" guy for whenever the team had encountered some really hard pieces of data to extract! All because I knew regular expressions really well!

Being known as the person who helps others is one of the best ways to build a reputation.

When you commit yourself to consistently care for people, those acts of kindness add up.

I like how my buddy Jarrod puts it: "Even if you're aren't famous, you can still build trust by helping individuals one at a time."
