I Am Having So Much Fun Today...Seriously LOL

You are going to love this.

I have been writing my own salescopy for over 4 years, earning me thousands
of dollars in sales monthly.

Today I was told my sales letter wasn't worth more than $300.

I was also called a dumbass (okay, that's open to debate)

I guest author at many high PR sites online because I am asked to.

Today, I was told that an offer to write for a PR 0 site with about a half
dozen backlinks...if that...might not be open very long.

I was told by a customer of mine that I wasn't running my business the
right way (several 6 figure income years later)

At one point in my life, all of this would have had me quite upset (especially
when I didn't have a pot to spit in)

But today...I can't help but get a very good chuckle out of it all.

So I thought I'd open up this thread to any other suggestions my friends
here at the OT might have for improving myself.

Please, let's have some fun with this because you never know...YOU might
actually give me a good idea.

Let the fun and games begin.

    The time when I cared what others thought of what I do is so far in the past I've forgotten how I reacted to it. If someone thinks they can live your life better than you can - tell them to have a go at it and just send you the checks.

    I was going to help out but I searched what's left of my brain (after 9 solid hours of writing) - and there's not one single idea left in there.

    Sorry about that.

    It is just a good thing you 'don't believe your own press', Steven.

    Consider the source.

    Then kick some helpless inanimate object.

    In my more devilish moments I welcome derision. I am sure I must be doing something right to attract so much jealousy and envy which is where most criticism that is not constructive emanates from. (the rest is from misinformation)

    My only advice? File it under 'whatever'.

    Be yourself.

          I haven't been able to grow a beard in 52 years and you want me to start
          now?

          As for going bald, I don't think that look does me justice...thank you.

            Good advice but make sure it's not a solid object or attached an immovable. That could pose a problem.

            Many years ago I had an across the street neighbor - an old lady who was more interested in my social than I was. She broke her toe on the dresser as she rushed to the window to see who was pulling into my driveway.

            Served the old biddy right.

              Never broke my toe but have broken a couple keyboards and mice and recently my toaster. I have anger management issues but it served them right.

              I enjoyed breaking the mice immensely. It was worth every dime.

          That should be a super cool look unless you're beard is gray.

              I had a grey beard when I was ten.

              <-----As you can see, it's red now.

              I age in reverse.

        So, so far we have (from top to bottom)

        Bald
        Beard
        Metallica T Shirt
        Kilt
        Barefoot.

        That should help fix all the problems others think you have.

        Let us know how you get on.

    Maybe you should try to be more like Kern.

    Let your hair grow, wear some "cool" t-shirts and jeans, throw in some cuss words in your copy...

    You know, appear a little more "credible".

    Oh, and ALWAYS go bare-foot. Especially if you ever do a seminar.
