The Art of Getting Paid

As a rule, I avoid peppering my speech, let alone articles and posts, with profanity. I’m not sure that someone paid good money to communicate should convey his point with words likely to be caught by a spam blocker.

This time, however, I’ll make an exception.

The video “F*ck You, Pay Me” linked to below was first sent to me by my friend Paula Smith of Curry Printing. My first reaction was “38 minutes!  I don’t have that kind of time!” But with a title like that, you have to at least check it out.

So I did. I came for the title, but stayed for the content – all 38 minutes.

I found the video contained much of what I have been preaching to my clients for years. The style, as you would expect, was blunt.

The message was dead-on.

Invest the time. Grab a cup of coffee and take a listen. I’m guessing you’ll be glad you did.
