Say what is on your mind!!

I wish more would do this.  It would save us all so much time.  But, some are naturally not going to speak up.  I shared a client story of mine applicable to the work place.  I have these clients I met way back in 2010, great people.  I’ve kept in touch over the past decade as I had promised always.  Never really heard back much which was weird.  I just assumed they were crazy busy all the time and it just wasn’t on their list of priorities.  Come to find out back then, they thought I was a little pushy in my process….I had NO IDEA.  I took the high road with a cordial email in reply, respecting how they felt.  But, we don’t have the chance to re-do the past 10 years and everything they had missed out on.  All because they never shared what was on their mind.  Now, the relationship is much better and they thanked me for understanding them.  It felt good to clear the air.

Thanks for coming out everyone!

Naked Man Moleskin

Well, for the first time there was a moment where I felt…”if you can’t do it, don’t Q it” as they all say.  Round 5 I made the mistake of grouping 33 merks in a row pretty quickly and just got gassed and had to stop.  Cousin Eddie gave me a hard time, which he had the right to haha.

I also found out that Baywatch did a Q at IL just yesterday very similar to what I did today.  I had no idea since I never read his backblast and clearly wasn’t there.  Pretty funny.  Sorry guys.


Good to see you back with us Bootlegger!!!!!!!
