"You have a lot of nerve trying to earn $15,000 on one deal; why, you're only a broker."

My friend Chris gave me a copy of "Winning Through Intimidation" to read - wow. Just wow.

Title's misleading. It's actually about how not to be intimidated, and how to generally do good business by being prepared and ready. At least, I think that's what it is, I'm only halfway through.

Here's an excerpt from page 106-107. Bold added by me:

The lender went crazy. During the ensuing heated discussion he said two things that would ring in my ears for a long time to come and, consequently, help me to prepare for earning and receiving substantial money in the near future.

The first thing he said was: "You have a lot of nerve trying to earn $15,000 on one deal; why, you're only a broker."

Singing taxi driver

Too busy to work on your goals?

Just had a first -- was in a taxi in Beijing. The taxi driver was a young guy, probably newly to Beijing from the provinces.

What made him different from the hundreds of other taxi drivers in the city was that he was playing songs in English and singing along, meaning he'd be picking up English gradually as he goes.

Are you too busy to keep moving ahead the world? Maybe not, if you get a little creative about it.
