I don't bite

I received a funny email today from someone who was trying to contact me to pitch his startup. He requested my phone number and I didn't give it to him right away because I was so behind on email. I guess he reached out to others to find the best way to contact us. The email string below is pretty funny.

And, to clarify: I do give out my cell number, I just don't answer it very often because I'm busy. I prefer to talk after 10pm because that's when things slow down and I'm not distracted. And the editor@venturebreak email address only goes to me—no one else.

Just received the note from some of my PR buddies. Guess I shouldn’t have asked you for your phone number last week – I had NO idea it was such a sensitive issue. Anyway – I’ll continue to reach out to you for xxxxx this way. Sorry about the request.

FYI… I seriously advise not calling him – this is what EVERYONE has told me.

he doesn’t give it out – and if you get it don’t call it because he’ll blacklist you.

Best way to get Brad is to email him between Midnight and 2am – seriously.

also, send a mail to editor@venturebreak which all the writers monitor, not just him.
