You won’t find these on my blog.

  1. Should you listen to critics?

    I think you should hear them and know what is being said.

    However, if you obey them then they will control and ruin your life.

    Critics can’t make you but they will break you if you let them.

    Someone once said
    I don’t know anyone who said as a young kid I want to grow up and be a critic.

    The truth is critics are in one way or another LOSERS who failed or didn’t even try to make it in the profession they are criticizing.

  2. The toothpaste dinner mints made me laugh. If people would only spend that effort on making more money they wouldn’t need to worry about dinner mints. And feeding my friends toothpaste doesn’t sound like a very good way to impress people.

    I followed so I can get your insights on my phone. Keep up the great work!

  3. I’ve followed your tweets for six months. They contain valuable (and sometimes hilarious) info. Thanks!

  4. My boss gave a presentation on the many uses of Twitter for your business and personal life. The interesting thing is that she doesn’t use it to get clients more so to generate buzz about Storymix media. For your personal life it’s works for customer service response.

  5. I think you should listen to your critics. However, what you with the criticism should be your choice, not theirs. Sometimes they might be wrong, sometimes they might be right. Taking what they offer and then turning it into gold is the best way to go. If people just hate on you, you can likely ignore it, that is a sign of success anyway.

  6. I enjoy the way you use Twitter. It clearly comes across that you’re working with a methodology for what you share and how you find interesting and relevant content.

  7. Criticism is good, and hating bad.. Although in certain situations a hater can point out something which we can use to improve, most of the time they should be discredited.
