Advertising!

If you're an entrepreneur or business owner who needs help with the "little tasks" in your business (making & confirming appointments, booking travel, sending gifts and cards to your clients, updating your Twitter, LinkedIn, Blog, Facebook, & YouTube accounts, and more), you can now have an Ivy League-educated, former Fortune-500 employee assist you.

Secretary in Israel will match with you an American virtual executive assistant to work with you on a part-time basis (as few as 5 hours/week). Working with your new virtual executive assistant will enable you to focus on what you do best--meeting with your clients--while she handles the rest!

No! Do not lose the integrity that this blog stands for...which is...um. Ok, nevermind.

well said, Sarabonne.

come on guys. isn't any post better than none at all?
can't a blogger decide at his discretion, to post about whatever this great country offers? (in your mind there should be a big waving flag behind me, and the starting chords to a very patriotic tune)
If this isn't the very thing our founding fathers brought forth upon this nation, then by george, maybe we should return to colonial times.

but yeah, trs. kind of low

I don’t know if any post is better than none at all, but I know what’s better than words of reproach.

A check.

Yossi said...

well, I'd sell myself cheap. If someone offered me even five bucks to post something specific on my blog, I'd probably do it, as long as it didn't contain anything vulgar or offensive.

TRS: Nothing wrong with honest business. This shtus about money being a dirty thing is socialist drek. Any good libertarian knows that. Pay no attention to the naysayers.

Yossi: vulgar is 10 offensive 20?

Nemo said...

Is outsourcing any more ethical than what Rubashkin did by hiring illegal immigrants? Either way, someone in America is out of a job ...

This is what happens when the MO's on Ivy League campuses, like Penn, convince you to make Aliyah. They tell you that Israel is sublime and there's no need to worry about your economic wealth or about maintaining a strong Jewish presence in the United States. They think that somehow Judaism can exist in Israel independent of a strong American Jewish community.

And what happens in the end? You just get stuck relying for your income on Americans anyway - anybody who is sympathetic enough to help a few housewives in Israel out with a couple hours a week of work. This dependence might be a step above and slightly more dignified than charity, but how much more productive would these people be, and how much more could they contribute to Israel's material success and security, by remaining in America?

Nemo said...

Also -- and I don't mean to get all picky -- most of these secretaries aren't actually Ivy League-educated (although there are some impressive resumes nontheless). This is false advertising Mr. Real Shliach and you've said nothing to disclaim it.

The Real Shliach said...

Yossi: Yup, five bucks it is. You can do the same thing too for five bucks - just contact frumsatire@gmail.com and say that I sent you.

Nemo: False advertising? So sue me!

TRS- and I was about say someone hacked into your account and posted this on his blog. If it can happen on facebook why not on blogger?

The bios for that site are a huge turn off either to good colleges or aliyah. They are all very educated and accomplished. Move to Israel! Become a secretary!

The lesson is a high priced American education is worthless in Israel.

Nemo said...

No body seems interested in good ol conversation anymore.

The Real Shliach said...

Dovid: Why not indeed?

Michael: Ahh, but think of the advantages of living in Israel... incredible falafel! (and of course food tastes better when you have a superior education)

Nemo: Au contraire!

Crawling Axe said...

Everything tastes/looks/sounds/smells/feels worse with superior education.

The Real Shliach said...

And that, my friends, is why I'm not in college.

Nemo said...

Aderabah, now that I'm in grad school, I find myself purchasing, eating and enjoying foods that I would have never touched while in yeshiva, like tofu.

The Real Shliach said...

You never ate chinese in yeshiva?

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

CA:No, only the drek you can afford to buy on a student's budget

TRS:He means yuppie tofu.

Dovid said...

Yossi- What an awful post. I mean it started out great but then it became awful.
1. How can you compare your friend to the prostitute? For yourself you say "I'm not as big a sinner as EBD" but for him, well no problem we can compare him to the prostitute.
2. Your friend said "your better than us" and you said to yourself, well yes I guess I am and shouldn't act like you?
