Like taking code from a baby

Remember that post a few days back

Where I said this:

“Especially considering I basically had to harass them to get paid each month for the work that I’d done (probably Bernie supporters… ya know).”


Those of you who been round these parts a bit know how that went.

This is ONE of the responses I got:

“I am a supporter of Bernie Sanders. One od the few USA politicians I have respect for. Since John Morris really likes to throw around really stupid and insulting associations regarding Mr. Sanders, I do not want to have anything to do with John Morris or what he represents. I support democratic socialism of scandinavian type, Sweden, Finland, Norway and other civilised countries that really care for its citizens. I do not support nor like USA type of capitalism, it is horrible. So good riddance John Morris, the smart ass of web development, have fun under Trump.”

Like taking candy from a baby. (Ahem… I mean “redistributing”.)

See how easy that is?

I talk about this all the time… and whenever I send one of these I get loads of unsolicited “advice” from no-nothings about how I shouldn’t talk politics or make fun of this or that candidate.

I do it on purpose y’all.

I know it pisses people off.

That is the point.

And, you should be doing it, too.


Because… I know these people are a pain the arsimuss. They write big long paragraphs about stupid ish based on one wise-crack in an email I wrote. (I actually got a two paragrapher from another dude.) They say stupid ish like “capitalism is horrible” which means every time I sell something they’re going to have a hissy fit. And, they tend to be big on opinions but small on taking action… so they rarely ever get anything from my or anybody’s courses.

If this isn’t a clear case of “drama I don’t need”…

I don’t know what is.

I don’t want them as customers.

I don’t want them on my list.

I don’t want them anywhere near me.

They’re drama.

And, talking politics and throwing out wise-cracks like that… scares them off. Good! Good riddance. Go away. If you’re one and reading this right now… buzz off.I don’t want your money.

And, you should do the same with your clients…

Or when picking what jobs you want to apply for.

Don’t just sell your soul to make a buck. Have some standards.

Know what clients/employers you don’t want…

As much as you know the ones you do.

Anyway, that’s one of the greatest business lessons I ever learned…

If you can cut through all “be professional” B.S. you’ve been taught and see it.

Now, onto biznass…

So, apparently y’all are some freaky freaks… people are lovin’ the freak-bot course I mentioned the other day. Here it is again in cased you missed it. It’s actually a course on machine learning, a segment of AI.

And, like I said the other day…

This is one of the areas of our industry that is still wide open… where “noobs” can still make a real impact and a name for themselves. So, if you want to be on the cutting edge of our industry, this is it. Plus, the average salary is 120K per year. Not too shabby.

Anyway, there’s a whole course on this AI/Machine Learning stuff.

That will teach you machine learning so you can actually get involved and have that impact and make that name. It’s from a guy who did this for Amazon and IMDb, so knows what he’s doing.

Anyway, here’s the link:

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
