So I've been trying to break into a certain field within the internet business realm. I finally got my break yesterday when a semi-bigwig asked for my e-mail and phone number. I sent him an e-mail with what I thought would be funny headline (so he'd open it and not think it was spam) and he basically ripped me to shreds saying I was young and stupid and he knew what I was trying to do. I didn't mean anything by it, just a mistake I guess.
So I sent an apology, telling him that I didn't mean to offend him and he basically sent me back a message telling me the same thing as the previous e-mail.
Should I keep defending myself or call it a day and move on? I would like to make good with him and still move on. Is asking for the best of both worlds too much?
