As an entrepreneur, at times it can be hard for you to handle the truth about your business, especially when it comes to your sales messages because in most cases you created the words yourself, THE words you thought would generate you the most leads and sales.
Back in January 2006, I did a sales letter critique for a guest and then proceeded to phone him. I was brutal.
