Anybody Can Be an Expert On Anything

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

short sale sacramentoIf it's not enough that the population of hard-nosed print journalists is being thinned out, and newspaper publishers seem eager to replace veteran reporters with inexperienced and (dare I say) often less dedicated reporters, some days the news just isn't uplifting -- fires, homicides, bankruptcies, foreclosures, bank failures, you name it. As a result, some reporters are looking for more upbeat stories, I suspect.

I belong to a public relations site that releases queries from reporters who are looking for interview subjects, and thought you might like to read some of the queries they send, and why I don't respond. Can't tell you which newspaper, magazine or web site, unfortunately.

Query: "Looking for an Expert on How to Behave at Holiday Parties -- What NOT to Do."

Elizabeth Weintraub's tips:

  • Don't show up naked, wear clothing.
  • Don't engage in intimate relations in the coat closet.
  • Don't do shots of Tequila and dance with a lampshade on your head.

Query: "Looking for Seattleites to Talk About the Ups and Downs of Umbrellas."

Elizabeth Weintraub's tips:

  • Point umbrellas away from your face upon opening.
  • Stand under an umbrella to stay dry.
  • If it's not raining, close your umbrella.

Query: "We Can't Afford That -- Explaining Budget Concerns to Your Children"

Elizabeth Weintraub's tips:

  • Show them photos of starving children in China.
  • Teach them to panhandle.
  • Make them walk to school, uphill in the snow and barefoot.

You can see how easy it is to be an expert. Piece of cake. But if you're looking for a Sacramento short sale / foreclosure expert, call Elizabeth Weintraub, who always has an opinion or advice on just about anything.

I still trying to think of what I'm an expert at. Is this a two out of three thing? I did keep my clothes on but I don't remember about the other two. I think the photos were doctored?
