    I am the Marketing Director at the Mike Ferry Organization and I guarantee you that we do not have a twitter account or a facebook account. These were obviously set-up by fans of the company. Are you all really that obtuse that you automatically assume that because there is a social media account with our logo and/0r name on it that it is Mike Ferry’s? Seriously … call me direct if you have any questions … 800-448-0647.

    Really Michelle? Really? Obtuse, Really?

    World English Dictionary
    obtuse (əbˈtjuːs)

    — adj
    1. mentally slow or emotionally insensitive

    Look, I was at Gen Blue, I saw the so called “Smackdown”, and basically Mike ran all over Mathew, not because of his “flawed” premise, but because he is a superior Orator…and you calling people who may not understand Social Media well enough to recognize a “Sanctioned” page “Obtuse” is uncalled for.

    Bottom line = The message got lost in the production…that being, we are in a moment in time where Old School Selling Skills and New Technology Skills are BOTH necessary! In fact, if you were half Mathew & half Mike, you would be a damn good RE Agent =) You would fish in a huge pond for Prospects, and find or “hook” a ton of them, and you would convert those catches to contracts at a high rate using proven closing skills.

    Coldwell Banker sent Mathew in to a debate he could not win, and that may have derailed the message, but this message is so clear and so important that it will never be stopped…live, learn, listen to progress or get the hell out of the way!
