How To be Successful Telling People How They Can Be Successful (When you’re not)

My bullshit detector is going off.

Ugh! I am so over this personal training business. It’s just a kabuki dance disguised as a workout session. When you look at the trainer and the client, it’s hard to tell who’s more disingenuous.

I busted my butt to get certified, only to find that almost everybody in the business, isn’t. One guy told me he took a weekend course. Hope he has a good lawyer.

Anyway, I’m done. I just have to be grateful for the knowledge I gained going through the learning process just to keep my own skinny ass healthy. At 73, I look twice at green bananas.

So now I have all these prepubescents hooking up with me on LinkedIn trying to tell me I could be spending the weekend in Dubai with my family and life is just so grand. But it’s not just personal training as you know. It’s everywhere.

When I was studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, most of the teachers were actively gigging at night. They were some road dogs I’ll tell you. Hard as nails with nasty habits. One of them said, “You’re either a musician or a musicologist.” The second one’s a phony.”

Now, there are 30-year-olds on LinkedIn that want to help me face life’s obstacles, make me a better public speaker, and get me to an eight digit income in six months. I tell them I don’t think I have that much time.

I’m thinking these people forked over a lot of dough to get certified in something, found out they will soon starve to death, then started enlightening the world on how they can make all the money they never will.

There’s two guys on LinkedIn both named Chris that are so absolutely full of shit, the could blow any minute. They’ve got a multi level marketing scam going on and they’re only letting a few select individuals take part. Makes you salivate, doesn’t it?

I wonder if they take musicologists?

C’est Lavie
