Jeff Paul says ...

So much of what we hear is defensive or negative, how about something different this middle of summer / middle of August.

Jeff Paul is a mail-order guru, who quotes others he's learned from and shares a fistful of his own thoughts;

  • Don't Apologize Or Make Excuses For Being Truly Excellent At What You Do!
  • "If the dogs are barking at your heels, you know you're leading the pack," Talmud said.
  • When you strive to succeed, some people will not like it.
  • When you strive to succeed, some people will talk about you.
  • When you become successful, some people will criticize and complain about you.
  • When you are successful, some people may decide not to like you anymore.
  • Some competitors may get upset with you about your advertising.
  • Some competitors may get upset with you about those hard-hitting reports!
  • These are definite signs that your marketing is working.
  • Can you handle envy, criticism, and competitors who snipe at you?
  • Will you apologize for demonstrating precision and excellence?
  • Will you turn tail and run for the hills??? We hope not!

And then Paul says . . . "Please take this little reminder as a guide to one of the troubling areas in life:"

Unsuccessful and petty people
try to drag down successful,
or soon-to-be successful, people.

It's going to happen to you, as soon as you make the decision to become an Instant Profits Marketing Advocate!

We just want you to be prepared. And mature enough to handle it, by basically ignoring it.

That's a fact of life I've faced and continue to face. But, I don't care what others think. I'm interested in what my clients/customers/patients think!

I just wanted to warn you. Being a successful marketer brings resentment from small thinking people. And, since there are so many small thinkers, you're bound to run into them now and again.

A statement from Anonymous made with the business world in mind.

Take it to another level, and the same thought applies in each of our personal and family lives;

"No matter what industry you pick,
sales are still made one at a time,
and usually by one person helping another person
make the buying decision."

. . . a loose thought

The RJm Story

Canada Post asked me to a series of 'minutes' about direct mail. My listed end with 48 Magic Marketing Minutes.
