“If you want to put yourself on the map, publish your own map”

A business is said to be “on the map” when it becomes known to many and/or influential clients. “If you want to put yourself on the map, publish your own map” is a jocular one-line saying from All I Want Is a Warm Bed and a Kind Word and Unlimited Power: Even More Brilliant Thoughts (1985) by Ashleigh Brilliant. The saying is “Pot-shot epigram #651” at AshleighBrilliant.com.
