I didn't send you an email but I really want to. There is no easy way to get someone's attention, is there? I agree with your points whole-heartedly. There are enough ads, businesses and people out there pushing their "stuff" on you that when it invades your inbox it simply becomes spam. That and advice. I get more advice than i can shake a stick at.....like a stick is going to do anything anyway.
Nicely said Rich.
@rdopping Great point Ralph, and a subtle one at that: even *good* advice isn't always welcome. (Think of, say, your parents telling you what you should do about something.) Michael Port makes the case about "being there when someone is ready to buy," and that is my philosophy too. Thanks!
