The Ten Commandments Of Con Men

The Power Of No
By James Altucher, Author of The Power of No

I told her I would never write about her again.

The first time I wrote about her was in 2009. I met her in a bookstore and she was drawing and I was attracted to her. I asked her what she was drawing.

She told me her whole story. And then a week later I wrote about it. That same day I got my first death threat. “I could kill you for writing about her.”

I apologized to her. We met. I asked her out. She said no. 
“You’re too old for me.” Which I was.

I wrote about her again a few years later. Not because of her but because of who her boss was.
