I have a very quick question for you this morning.
But before that, here’s something that might catch your interest.
You may take offence at what I am about to say.
Infact I considered not typing this, then I thought maybe I should say it and whatever your reaction is will be okay.
Dolapo, I know you own your email list and who am I to tell what and what not to write?
I noticed something, omoo right now I am carefully choosing my words.
I know it’s all good to really be raw and original with your subscribers.
I understand you are the one bringing the value to the table.
But, I think sometimes you are a little harsh and maybe rude.
You are not Andy Mukolo and I am not trying to compare you two honestly.
But I like to use him as a case study.
Andy is annoying and I can’t deny I really like it.
But I think Andy doesn’t disrespect or is rude to anyone, no matter what.
He maybe raw and a little harsh, but I doubt there is any email he really was rude
I have started learning from your email, it’s beautiful really.
Maybe certain people won’t leave, because they understand value, but how not nice is it that those that are there are there tolerating you and not loving everything you.
I apologize if this offends you honestly, I really do.
Meanwhile, I think I also calculate the monies of coaches and tutors😂
Although with different intention, I calculate because I am amazed at how much people make from doing their work smartly and putting themselves out there.
But I know say I too no dey alright.
This is a message I got from someone yesterday…
I really appreciate the feedback because feedback is what makes a community thrive.
And who knows?
She might have said what you also have in mind which is fine.
And yeah, I get all her intentions but something wasn’t sitting right with me.
This also brings me back to my proposed question.
Am I that hard to approach?
Am I that rude that you are afraid I will insult you if you drop your observation?
You and the other hundreds of people reading this right now are my second family.
And I rarely insult people that drop their observation unless people that want to force their decision on me.
I don’t want that.
But if you drop your sincere observations and suggestions?
Trust me to put it to good use.
And one thing you need to know is…
I never noticed I was being rude in my emails.
I just write what comes to mind and I see it’s not sitting well with people.
Which I will try to adjust very soon.
At least, I am here to give you value.
And what use will it be if I deliver the value but you are too angry to get the value?
That being said, I am putting it to you
What part of my email don’t you like?
What part of my email do you think I need to adjust?
Do you think I am also being very rude to you?
