Advice and the Unexpected


By the time you’re my age, you understand you can’t wrestle every day to bend to your will. There are good days, there are bad days. Sometimes the difference is in you. Other times things come at you unexpected. For example, when I started this paragraph I didn’t know I would have to rush out onto the deck to take down our patio umbrella as a bad storm blew by. (Just in time!)

I’ve read a lot of business books. Marketing, promotion, how-to’s and small business gurus telling me to CRUSH IT! Never forget that everyone with advice on how to promote yourself who has a large following got that following, 9 times out of 10, by telling people how to get a huge following.

There’s probably some good advice in what they say, but your mileage will seriously vary. Unless, you want to explain to YOUR followers how THEY can get huge following.

Then you’ve made it.

What does all this have to do with the drawing I posted above? Nothing directly. Except that “Kevin” from the “customs” department called me during a livestream and I answered it as Michael Caine. When I suggested that we talked before he hung up.
