Never trust a fat motivational speaker? Why? Because if they're fat then they're clearly not motivated to shed the pounds? Surely though it could also be said that a skinny motivational speaker can't be any good as they clearly can't do the job and earn money of it which is why they can't afford to feed themselves?

Fat

Skinny

Over time I've learnt never to assume.

Ah, well Stefan, I only really work with women and all of my marketing is directed at them. It would definitely have referenced women specifically somewhere in the post!

I understand the context now Smiley

Funny how easy it is to upset people. I posted a quote on my FB page that said something along the lines of... if you don't want to be treated like a doormat, get off the floor, and got a right outraged message from a follower saying that women who are feeling low are never victims. 

Told her I beg to differ but thanked her for her contribution #makingfriendsandinfluencingpeople

Now that strikes me as a terribly sexist point of view, from your follower.

That would have vexed me more than anything you originally said!

Yep, you have to decide whether its more important to be liked or speak your mind. It's always a choice. It's a good thing to turn off some people, no one can please all.

There is no such thing as a Twitter sound bite, if it's you tweeting it's you speaking.

It is the bizarre thing about modern life.  We share everything on social media, with unparalleled openness.  That may include some statements that are controversial.  People then become excited that someone has said something.

If we are going to carry on with the fun then society is going to have to man up a bit.

Complaining about what someone puts in twitter, is a bit like someone ringing you up to say they don't like you.
