How I Almost Lost My Life and The Lesson I Learned

Post topics about the business side of magic.

Postby Lou Serrano » 10/13/10 06:27 AM

I just posted a new video on my blog recounting an incident that almost ended my life and the lesson I learned from the experience. So far the response has been mixed with some people focusing on what might be considered negative elements regarding the content, instead of focusing on the message I intended to share. Although the message has been obscured by the controversy, I still believe it's a message worth sharing.

In any case, sometimes you hit a home run, sometimes you strike out, but you'll never get on base unless you step up to the plate. I may not be perfect, but at least I'm stepping up to the plate.

To your success!

Always keep your head above water. I'm glad you are fine.

I'm so certain of my work that not only won't I advertise it but I won't even post a teaser clip or sock puppet praise. If you're confident of your work maybe you can too. No ebook required not to write sales copy and how to bemuse those who imagine that one could wear another's clothes with self respect.

So wait for the link and hold your wallet tight as product appears in places - astounds audiences - and remains magical.

Hi Richard,

When I have a new product to promote, I will definitely be advertising both on here and in your magazine. Until then, If you prefer I don't post links to my articles, let me know and I will immediately stop.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Respectfully,

Aren't your articles essentially advertisements?

Richard,

My articles are designed to give free and valuable information to help others develop their businesses. At the same time they are marketing vehicles for my products and services.

If you prefer that I don't post links to my articles, please let me know, and I will immediately refrain from posting links on this forum.

Respectfully,

Lou Serrano

Thanks Scott,

I appreciate the support, although with you I know I'm preaching to the choir. :)

I hope your holiday season is a prosperous one!

Yes, the holiday season (and the entire year) is a recorder breaker for me! Thanks. I have no doubt you're doing well too.

I do appreciate the content you provide and, for what it's worth, I think that it's great content to have in this section. You offer value first and foremost and your sincerity shines through. Just my opinion of course.

I look forward to the day we can meet!
