I apologize. It’s not my fault but the people who are responsible aren’t really in a position to apologize to you…so I’m doing it.
You see, for months and months and months, I’ve been dutifully sending out emails to you every single day. I’ve (hopefully) been sending educational, entertaining, stuff.
Alas, it has been for naught.
my email provider has informed me it’s had some deliverability issues.
Even if you “whitelisted” me, seems there are helicopter parent email service providers out there preventing my emails from getting through to you.
Since you probably found me through an ad of some kind, or an article I wrote online, or maybe a friend told you about me…you undoubtedly saw my promise to send you helpful daily emails about cash flow, financial planning, and stuff like that on the signup form you filled out to get on this list.
And, if you haven’t been hearing from me, it certainly looks like I welched on that promise. I didn’t. Still…I can see how someone might think that…and think to themselves, “That David. That scoundrel. Why…he has some nerve not making good on his promises. I think I’ll sue him and tell everyone I know what an awful untrustworthy human being he is and that his momma wears combat boots and that he should go to h-e-double hockey sticks.”
…see, there’s no way my email provider is contacting you to let you know there was a problem on their end. Heck, they didn’t even contact ME. I had to dig in, keep sending support tickets, and break the darned thing before they’d acknowledge it…
But they’re going to let me take the rap for that.
All this to say there is always a dark side to doing business. Always a way some other biz-naz will make you look bad in some way, shape, or form. Intentionally or unintentionally.
Now…an email deliverability problem doesn’t seem like a big deal. And, as long as it’s straightened out, it isn’t. But, you might not be so lucky…
…vendors and customers (and even other businesses) sue for the weirdest and most insane things.
Years ago, a client threatened to sue me for invoicing her for work I did (yes really).
But…it could be anything…
Like alleged trademark violations. Or tax patent infringements (did you know you’re not allowed to use parts of the tax code because they’re patented by unscrupulous accountants and lawyers?).
…Or maybe because someone feels you wronged them in some trivial way and they want to make an example of you.
How do you protect yourself? Well, there are a few ways but most of them require extensive planning. Yeah…the good ‘ole corporation is one way…unless they pierce the veil due to you being a one man show or small enough that your personal assets are worth the effort.
…and then there’s a matter of money.
Planning costs money. Money you may not have.
…and that’s what my new eBook will show you how to do (assuming Amazon doesn’t do to me what my email provider did).
Accumulate some extra moolah…even if you ain’t got none right now.
Keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground. Oh…and if you’ve found these daily musing of any value whatsoever, pass them on to your friends and peers. Things are going to get interesting over the next few weeks.
I’ll be releasing some info that could protect you, your friends, your family, people you care about, business associates….from the next recession (which, depending on the source you read, is already here).
