Don't get me wrong! I love these guys. However, there are some people that take Amazon as the gospel. Here's something that happened to me recently.
I got called for a job as a part-time marketing assistant for a music publishing company. Of course, I think glamour right away but this was hardly the case.
The first thing that bugged me was that they stood me up on Skype but things happen so I agreed to being rescheduled.
When interview time came, I had to use the newer laptop for a video conference instead of text chat. Maybe it was my fault for having work that was suited for my desktop (Vista) instead of just getting a larger Win 7 laptop.
Okay, so this whole thing is about selling acoustic guitar lessons and they want to know what can I contribute?
Hell if I know. You reached out to me - twice!
So I mention the blog here and the fact that I'm from LaLaLand where there's a musician on every corner.
Unfortunately, this was good enough for them.
So there's a lot of talking about upcoming products but no data, no demo or anything else to go on. So I take a look around and realize something.
I'm being paid to lie on Amazon.
So I got the hell out.
I don't need money that bad.
AMZ has saved me money in rare movies, textbooks, and so much more in the past decade that I could never risk my rep like that. In my discoveries, I found many people do not feel the same as I.
