Anne Lewis Strategies, "Laugh At Us", We Are.

When I made my little comment on Mr. Weiner's "Internet Consulting Services" payouts, I thought nothing of it aside from a throw away chuckle that he pays for some kind of "Internet Consulting Services", implying maybe that the consultant should have consulting him on better Internet nEtiquette. Well, it seems that based on traffic logs, the people at Anne Lewis Strategies may have found my blog. Welcome more new readers, and here is a laugh directly at Anne Lewis Strategies... They advertise:
Ability to laugh at oneself (and, at times, the company principals) is a must.
Supporting principals on the day-to-day management of overall
client relationship and satisfaction;
...Know how to use Twitter to build relationships and get satisfaction...
Ok fine, so maybe I added the last part of the job description, because it's funny and I like to laugh. Hopefully the people at Anne Lewis Strategies found my little blog funny enough to come back! I'll check the logs again later in the week. Surely, Weiner consulted with Anne Lewis Strategies before posting all of those pictures of himself holding onto his package in the house gym.

Here is the job description from 2009 as posted on google groups.... funny in that ironic way that the date on the job description was May 18, 2009. It is/was two years later, May 27th, that Weiner's now famous twitpic was sent. Again, if anyone knows what it is that Anne Lewis Strategies actually does, or claims to do, that is described as "Internet Consulting Services" at the rate of $11K in 3 months, do please tell, I'm always looking for business ideas, and I'll advise any client of mine not to take semi-nude photos of themselves and/or to post them online. A good business pitch, I hope Anne Lewis Strategies doesn't steal my idea.
