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.
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.
