Do THIS before taking someone’s advice

in Doing English Podcast

Before you listen to what someone says…

… watch what they DO.

Take this Facebook comment for a software company’s ad:

“Glenn Hunter: Keap is e rebrand for infusionsoft. If you think you’re losing 47 hours per month… Subscribe to this… You’ll pay huge in programming and supper fees. I’ve had this product for over 8 years and have spent huge money. Close to $78000 Stay away. It used to be called Confusionsoft for us and users”

(↑ all spelling and grammar mistakes present in original comment.)

Now, I use Infusionsoft (it’s what just sent this email to you).

And I personally love it.

I get nothing for defending it. But I can’t help picking apart pure stupidity when I see it (we’ll ignore that Glenn writes like a retard; proof once again that native speakers aren’t always better at English.)

He’s spent $78000 over 8 years.

That’s close to $10000 a year. Infusionsoft is incredibly powerful. And used properly should be making him back FAR more than that so the point is moot (cost almost always is, providing you’re using what you paid for).

More importantly ー

He says, “stay away”.

But he’s been using the product for 8 years.

And he doesn’t see the irony in that?

You see crap like this all the time with language learning, too. Teachers who give advice that they don’t follow themselves (the English teacher who doesn’t speak a language other than English? Yeah, you know what I mean). Fuckwits on YouTube (in videos and comments) dispensing Engish improvement advice when they can’t put together a grammatical sentence to save their lives.


Is it the ONLY way to master English?


Does it work incredibly well for me personally?


The people who have taken the course and my one-on-one clients before them?


Rant over.
