    Question reflexive pronoun

    Please help me with this reflexive pronoun error.
    So, if I want myself and the company I work for to be taken seriously, I need to pay more attention to my grammar and spelling.
    Should it say:
    So, if I myself and the comany I work for to be taken seriously, I need to pay more attention to grammar and spelling.

    Default Re: reflexive pronoun

    There's no need for 'myself' there:

    If I and the comany I work for want to be taken seriously, I need to pay more attention to grammar and spelling.

    To add emphasis, you could do this:

    If both I and the comany I work for want to be taken seriously, I need to pay more attention to grammar and spelling.
