I have never met a human being who has been motivated by a motivational speaker. They all tell the same story: meteoric rise, collapse, redemption. You can get the same message watching any rerun of the VH1 television show Behind the Music. Besides, motivational speaking is not a very impressive redemption. It's more like a lateral move into conning people. When my time is done writing these daily SteepandCheap emails, I'm going to look into starting a motivational speaking ring.
