You really had me fooled; I truly thought I was a better judge of character than that. You said if I hitched my wagon to your train we were going to go places; we were going to make real money.
You didn’t tell me it was real Monopoly money.
You also didn’t tell me I already know more than you in here.
When I signed on I really did not expect to be stranded out here looking for a ride home.
I am very disappointed in you.
You must be looking in the mirror
Oh; I thought that dude looked familiar.
Didn’t you write a post back in January about all the great things that would be happening around here? How did that work out for you? It looks like you are light years away from that guy, huh?………………….not…………………..
It’s the same ol’ bull spit, just more days off the calendar.
Dorman, you still suck.
Man up, then
This sounds like a post full of angst and a plea for help; if I have to tell you what your mission is then I might as well do your damn work too. Why don’t you just go find someone who is rockin’ it big and do the same thing?
That would be too easy……or too hard. The people that are really making it in social are flat working their butt’s off. They are posting 47 times a week, they have 3 different blogs, they are spending more time in airports than they are at home, and oh yeah, they are still trying to finish that book.
And I see a lot more who are flat working their butts off and aren’t even close and starting to question whether they will ever make it.
And……some are trying to fit a day job and life in there on top of everything else.
That sure sounds like it would be cutting into a lot of my ‘me’ time. I would have to ask myself how much of that is sustainable and how much of that goes away immediately as soon as I get off the hamster wheel? Does that really look like success to me?
Or am I just stroking my ego?
I think I’d rather be sitting around the house all day unshaven, in my skivvies and wife beater, eating potato chips while writing semi-erotic romance novels.
Only you can answer those questions
That is correct.
A couple of things I do know however; if I do nothing different than I have been doing, I should fully expect pretty much the same results. If I’m happy with those results, then I need to just keep my yap shut.
If I want things to change, I, and I alone have to take the first step to make it happen. Yes, there are many in social who can help me along this journey, but I have to be willing to get out of the door first.
I’ve done everything I can with the just showing up MO. I’m pretty sure my shtick has run it’s course and whoever is out there that needed to discover me, has had that opportunity to do so; and yes, this will be as good as it gets without change.
But you have so much potential
Obviously, I’m the next A-lister, right? Talk about the kiss of death; I’ve seen sooooo many in my industry of commercial insurance sales who had potential. In fact, they were can’t miss candidates and we even threw a bunch of money at them. Out of that entire bunch of about 12-15 people, only two lived up to their billing.
Talk is cheap; and there sure is a lot of talk going on in social.
Please, whatever you do, never put me on the potential pedestal.
So, who are you disappointed in then?
If I say me, it’s only because I know I can play the social game and be successful at it, if that’s what I decided to do. There has to be enough want to as well, to even have a chance of making it happen.
But that is not necessarily matching up for me right now.
I hear it was supposed to be easy to make money in here? Apparently a lot of people think that.
So what’s the point then?
I really enjoy networking and really enjoy people and learning about what makes them tick. As long as I have the time and it doesn’t detract from my awesomeness in my day job, then sign me up. It’s just an extension of what I do every day anyway.
I’m not disappointed in my efforts and if you stick around here because you find some value, I appreciate you more than you will know. If you left because I didn’t fit into your plans as you move forward or drop out; I’m sorry but it was a pleasure getting to know you and I only wish you much success.
I’m not looking for anyone to make me successful; but if you happen to blow up and make it big, I will be sure to tag along. I can drop a name……….:).
