Hey this is Frank publisher of Retired Writer’s Club, our secret email list that goes out every day to business owners who understand that making money is the goal of business.
It’s pretty simple, but there’s a lot of nonsense and misinformation out there.
Today’s message is about Frank Sinatra and handling critics of you or your product.
One time he, and the story goes, recorded a song. He listened back and he was like, man, if you don’t like that, you don’t like ice cream. It’s funny, you know, kind of a wise guy comment.
But I’ve done it. I’ve made things. I’ve written a piece and I’m like, man, that’s just good. Right? It’s not earth shattering, not the greatest thing ever done, but it’s good.
If you have created something good, you’re going to have people that think it’s great.
They just really just think you’re awesome that think you are ice cream. Right.
And you’ll have people will be like, yeah, you’re good.
And then you have critics and mostly, you know, it’s the old fashioned term is dyspepsia right. A lot of hatred, a lot of anger out there. And that’s human nature and we all go through it.
So if you’ve created something good, you know, remember that Frank Sinatra line, okay, it’s good period. Right. And you’re gonna have people buy it. You are going to have people like it. And you’re gonna have people not like it.
And you gotta’ keep on making the ice cream. Right.
Because there are people who are counting on you and they’re the ones that matter.
You know, Dan Kennedy talks about only paying attention to the people who give you money, which I should probably talk about more in another message. But that’s enough for now.
