Behave this my friend

GNP.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Anything less is not enough

Actual comment on emailed invoice.

Commitment means being all in.

Anything less is not enough.

If you are not all in, you are not all in.

You cannot be mostly all in.

Dear Son

Every CEO gets to take a stand or waver

Goals quote
Things only become sayings or cliches if they are true. From LinkedIn yesterday.

 

The event planner left a voice message yesterday saying my price was too high for her client, even though i offered two discounts. (one for 100% advance payment, the other for contracting a second, future, engagement simultaneously.

One standard $3,500 discount for 100% advance payment, and another $2,000 for what i creativity labeled “seed discount”; a goodwill gesture anticipating future bookings.

The $2,000 seed discount would be added back into the second contract, so it’s technically not a discount – more like a short-term loan to help them meet short-term budget constraints for the first booking.

i love being able to talk about price integrity with conviction and commitment.

The real client – the event planner’s client – wants an amazing Disney speaker for a half-day leadership engagement for her association’s 27-member statewide board of directors.

She’ll find less expensive options.

i’m a firm believer you get what you pay for.

Trying to fit a mold is dangerous

quote
Yeah but, i don’t want to ruin my chances for a promotion.

 

Big company or small company, the internal competition for promotion is relative.

Bad moves are remembered well.

So don’t ever make any, right?

You know, play it safe.

You can let loose and be yourself when you retire.
