Please give me my $.97 back

February 28, 2009

We just had someone email that he wanted a refund on the only purchase he ever made from 48Days.  That was a teleseminar from over a year ago where the cost was $.97 – that’s right – ninety seven cents.  He maintained that he was serious – even though he also stated that the teleseminar was very helpful. 

I cringe at the thought of this transaction.  Trust me, we gave him his $.97 back – even though there was no physical product; he just listened in on a phone line.  But I cringe that this poor guy could find no more productive way to invest his time.  It just portrays a mindset that is not likely to see the big picture.  I also cringe that he was exposed to even one segment of our resources and walked away with no more creativity than that.  Don’t they give you $20 for a vial of blood down at the plasma bank? 

I know times are tough for a lot of people – but please expect the challenges to increase your ability to “see” opportunities – not diminish them.
