The tale of two messages

Remember this post? He’s very upset with me. He’s emotionally involved and he’s upset with the person that put us together. He told him not to do him any more favors like the introduction to me. Too bad because the person that made the introduction makes a lot of introductions that turn into a lot of money for a lot of people. This guy should save himself a lot of grief, aggravation and money and shut his business down now. Interestingly, he missed the fact that I might have had a referral for him. I think that he should tear down his wall.

By contrast, I share this email exchange from this morning.

I’m gonna delete names and emails, but leave times and messages.

(In between, I found Tom on LinkedIn. So, I called him. Then sent the following.)

OK, you’re legit. Call my cell and I’ll answer your question(s). (and I gave him all my contact info.)

He did. We talked for 24 minutes and 38 seconds. We’re having lunch on the 18th.

See the difference? @gmail and I already have a two way relationship. The other guy’s hiding behind his wall.
