RE: anyone willing to help me w/a small penis?
Ok, I'm the first one to admit that was mean.
I am known to have a mean streak that can be unleashed with a good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and a perfectly cooked steak.
On a more serious note:
Dear theRazz aka Rich,
you are shooting yourself in the foot with each new post in <a href = "http://www.benzworld.org/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1250602&start=1&fid=46">the other thread</a>. Each new post by you raise more red flags for the potential investor.
I take it you are a free spirit and are not willing conform to conventions but when it comes down to matters regarding business and money, my advise is to stick with the tried and tested customs. Nothing is more conservative and conventional than the act of lending money. You do not win the hearts of potential investors by alienating the rest of the world with your maverick attitude.
I know you have been through a lot already and perhaps you went through yet another straw that broke the camel's back moment.
Do keep it together, however, even in the toughest of times. If you have an exprerience in the army, you should surely know how to handle high-stress situations. Look back to the thread you started at the very end of last year and read through many of the feedbacks given by the fellow members - deep down we are all supportive of you and nobody likes to see you fail.
Whereas some responses to your $80,000 loan thread may seem sarcastic and patronizing to you, there is a lot of truth in their feedback. One of the responses you elicited was that everybody is your boss once you own your business. Nothing can be more true than that concise statement. You have to treat everybody the way you state that you would treat your customers. Can you do that? You may have to rethink what you have said about the whole world needing readjusting as opposed to yourself.
Just think back at times when your life was working out - if indeed you were given full rein of the towing company in NYC, think what made it work for you. Did you carry on with the same attitude that you display here on this forum? I doubt it. It sounds like you worked hard, did the right thing and earned the respect of your ailing boss as well as others who did business with you.
Anyways, that's about all I can say for now.
Good luck, the rest is up to you.
