When it comes to crafting your professional title, I've learned you almost can't go too big. Recently, I've encountered salespeople with the titles "Supreme Commander," "The Experience," and "Lord of All Fish."
A big title isn't braggadocious. It shows you have confidence, don't take yourself too seriously, and that you aim to be the best. Also, it can spark conversation. If you met someone with the title "Lord of All Fish," wouldn't you want an explanation?
My current title is "Chief Architect" but I'm thinking I could ratchet it up a bit.
