I sent you $50.
I'm giving you a story you can use...
When I first arrived here in Abilene Texas, I had tons of trouble with a white
supervisor here. I thought he just hated black people...
No problem... I grew up in the south...
Then... one day he... just blew up at me. Used every cuss word I ever heard of...
and a few new ones too.
So... I asked him... "I know you're upset... if you had a magic wand and could
make all your problems vanish... would you?"
Hell yeah I would!
What would be the first thing you would make go away?
Ok... he's gone... how do you feel now? (I waved my hands in front of his face)
Willie you are not funny... he is still here... what you are some magician?
But if I had a magic wand... I would want you to have mine. Looks like you really
do need one.
He started smiling. Then I went back to work.
The next day... I bought him a cheap $2 magic wand... really I bought two of them.
Every time he would get upset I would stand up a wave the wand... he would start
That $2 magic wand got me my position as Site Manager when promotion time came
around.... $60,000 a year.
I didn't understand totally how it all came together... till you started sending
these ezines out back to back... about your give-to-get book.
Thanks... you are the man.
