Does Simon Cowell ring a bell?
Massive audience for his brutal honesty.
It's like a car crash.
Everyone slows down on the highway to take a look.
People have said to me they might not always like how I say things,
but they always know where they stand with me.
That is why they trust me.
I don't blow sunshine up the ass of anyone.
And I don't want anyone doing it to me.
Could you trust someone who always said,
"Daaaaaaaaahling you look maaaaaahvalussssssss."
Years ago in my sales meetings I would go over the results of the prior week.
You can be humorous in your honesty and yes,
everyone laughed when I would tell people:
"God damn you sucked last week!"
But you see, I was laughing while I said it.
That's not cruel, people just knew that was my style.
