You have seen Mr. Donald Trump on TV, right?! The gentleman that is famous for saying “You're Fired" on the show, “The Apprentice.” Well earlier this week I sent him an e-mail, requesting his help in being spokesperson for the Red, White & Blue Pages™. I was nervous clicking on that "Send" button in my e-mail. Did I give him enough information? Did I incorporate enough of his personal information so he knows that I did some research before sending the e-mail? Will it peek his interest? What if he thinks I am crazy? What if this e-mail just gets deleted? Yikes! Did I mention in any previous posts that I overanalyze every little detail?
Are you wondering why I sent an e-mail to Mr. Donald Trump? Joanna dared me. Well she didn't come right out and say I dare you to send an e-mail to Mr. Donald Trump. It was more like she suggested he would be the appropriate advocate in an e-mail and then put a question mark at the end of her sentence. I interpreted this as a, what are you going to do about it.
You are probably also thinking okay why ask him to be spokesperson for the Red, White & Blues Pages™? It makes sense to me, especially after reading some of Mr. Donald Trump's bios. Did you know that he went to the New York Military Academy? I also found in my research that he is a supporter of Paralyzed Veterans of America and Wounded Warrior Project. Of course he is also a well known business man. I just think about all the people that apply to be on "The Apprentice."
Yes, I think that Mr. Donald Trump's celebrity status will be helpful for the Red, White & Blue Pages™ and MSBA overall, but I also think that he can teach us a lot. There are plenty of things MSBA needs to learn, that I need to learn. One of those obvious things is how to advertise a business. Once armed with this new knowledge we can then pass that on to you our members.
Now I am anxiously awaiting a response. Joanna reiterated to me; nothing ventured, nothing gained. One way or the other I will give you an update.
