Your meandering ego trip last evening managed to result in a reversal of the progress for the client today. You were provided with a backstory of being a retired health care lawyer who posted to help people. For some reason, you felt the need to embellish the story with tales of the money you have made and what a marvelous career you have had. Do you really believe that a person who has gone to a good college and law school and had a 30 year career would reach back to establish his bona fides by saying two of his prep school classmates had become "self made" billionaires? If you believe your story had any credibility or you made people admire you......well, stick to the backstory you were assigned. You are undermining the entire project.
Godwin we really need to talk. I think ego may get in the way of your job. It is not about Maxdad or some other poster it is about you. Why don't I bring around a tandoori chicken pizza (so delicious!) on my rounds tonight and we talk. Watch for me in my white Chevy!
