He’s talking about a mastermind in Las Vegas, so I ask him when he’s going to be there, so we might be able to get together and talk.
We’ve done it before, so I’m thinking, it’s always worth a drive, even to Las Vegas to talk to someone that might make you money, right?
So he tells me he’s going to be locked in the room for two days, and he’ll only be available in the evening.
That’s okay with me so I send him an email back.
In the email I say, “Hey, how much is it, and who’s going to be there?”
Pretty clear if you ask me.
He writes back, “No one you would know. It’s $5,000 dollars and you bring someone.”
Instantly I’m not happy.
I might have attended with a friend, but when he told me, “no one you would know” I interpreted that as him telling me, I don’t know the people that he hangs around with. I know he didn’t mean it, but I just sent him an email back telling him, “Oh great, then there is no reason for me to come since I don’t know anyone.”
Here’s my point.
When you’re sending emails, be careful what you write. Once you write something, go back and reread it. When I don’t do this, I make mistakes.
Well take that a step further.
What if you SAID something that you shouldn’t have?
