What does it feel like to lose the trust of a large number of important people?
It feels… hmm… I don’t know… does pretty bad sum it up?
Years ago, I used to have a solid network. I knew top tiered producers in the entertainment industry, the VP of Human Resources over at Warner Brothers, owners of Investment funds and Mortgage companies, Angel Investors, Jamie Kennedy, Hill Harper, AMG, high level consultants, business leaders, musicians, models, actors, most the people over at SBE, and the list goes on.
Then, I decided to go out and take shortcuts to get to the top. Unethical ones.
Where did it lead me?
Right back to where I started. With nothing and no one, wishing that tomorrow would never come.
Come to think of it, I miss hanging out with Jamie Kennedy. He’s freaking cool.
