You’re right. Ol’ (?If you’re gonna take me on, you better bring a sack lunch…cause it’ll take all day?) Big Ed is known to administer lead treatments, Bugsy Siegel style, to those he deems needy enough (right b’twixt the eye sockets) …‘doesn’t pull too many punches, our Ed. If he tells you the Sun ain’t comin’ up tomorrow…you best pick up a case of candles.
Funny you should mention Tony Hoffman, Bud, 'would you believe I have a meeting with him set up for next Wednesday? All he does now is infomercial production, and according to one a mutual business associate who set up the meeting, he thinks he can cash in on the PACTrust™ big time (…um…like he did with the Flow Bee, the Dyna Bee and the O.J. Simpson video?).
And re. my idol, Paul Simon, his former 50:50 partner and trainer is one of our California Network Members, and plied me with the real scoop on Paul: his success, failures and current whereabouts…he’s in Kansas (like all the really big ones, he got his snorkel in a ringer with the IRS the BK courts and is now about as wealthy as he was when he started out).
Joe Land…my son used to work for him…singularly the BEST pitch man I’ve ever watched work in my life (Kind’ve like a larger and more dapper Zig Siglar with nice shoes).
Schaub…he and I shared the cover of Creative Real Estate Magazine with Bill Bronchik, A.D. Kessler. Bernie Zick, Ted Thomas, Bruce Norris and Scott Britton a year or so ago (if we’re talkin’ bout the same Schaub?I don?t know him). I’m the one in there whose picture looks like a bug just flew in my ear.
Robert Allen…'met with him a few months and have another luncheon meeting with him in May.
Do I run in the weird gutters, or what?
