Me a professional? Carmine and professional put in the same dang sentence together… I doubt it! I never thought that I would need to really act professional in order to be a successful. I was told by a friend of the business partner I was trying to make a deal with that they didn’t want to do the deal. More specifically they didn’t want to do the deal because I didn’t look professional enough. That’s unbelievable that someone simply won’t do the deal because I don’t look like lawyer or doctor or something.
I was shocked when I heard that the deal was about to go south because I didn’t look professional. So what did I do?
Can you guess what Carmine did?
I stuck it to them, hard. I went to the meeting like my normal self, unprofessional as can be. When the soon to be business partner started trying to talk his way out of the deal I hit him with some REAL TALK. I said, that I heard from my buddy that you didn’t want to do the deal because I look unprofessional. Not because you don’t think I’ll get you results for your company, but just because of the way I present myself.
I proceeded to lay a verbal smack down on this sucker. I looked him dead in the eyes and said “I don’t mind embarrassing my friend right here, giving him up on something he told me not to because I know when you say yes to the deal that you’ll be thanking me profusely. I am the person who’s going to make you a ton of money. Lets put this non-sense aside and shake on it”.
Fuck You Attitude
Just like that he shook my hand, signed the papers and we’re in business. I knew no matter how much I dressed up that I’d still look like a Queen’s born street thug. I know that, and I understand that. My parents taught me well. They taught me to always know myself. I got what they call the “fuck you attitude” made popular by The Gambler. That’s how Carmine lives his life… Fuck You!
