See, I know there's no, like, conspiracy per se.

(As in, I don't believe there's a bunch of gurus in a room somewhere plotting how to keep the Little Guy down.)

. . .

Plus she had a contagious laugh, a witty sense of humor, and the kind of inner spirit that made you just want to LIKE her.

(Dammit.)

I, on the other hand, was decidedly NOT one of the prettiest or most popular girls in my class.

I had gaps in my front teeth, frizzy hair, and chubby cheeks.

(But again, if that's you you're probably not even reading this. And do you like how I am now writing to NO ONE in this parenthetical phrase?)

The RIGHT Way To Influence Your Customer (5 Questions You Must Ask)

. . .

But is it manipulative to help someone make a decision that will solve an important problem or fill a need for her?
