Hey Washingtonian? Is This An Apology?

Hey Washingtonian, do you call this an apology? 'When you wrote the article, Is the Blogger “Mr. Cranky” Out to Save DC’s Tech Industry—Or Destroy It?', you did your best to defend Jennifer Mellon and Danny Boice, the crooks who run Trustify. Sure you printed my response, "Mr. Cranky Responds," Yet, as time goes by, the facts of the case, show that you totally blew it (see post). Now almost a year later, we see that Jen Mellon and Danny Boice are being sued for embezzlement and fraud in a bankruptcy suit brought by Trustify investor, Anchorage Capital. Add on four large legal judgments and one additional lawsuit still pending for a total of $1.5 million and I'd say that that's proof that Trustify is a Dumpster Fire. So when you published this listing in your September magazine. Was that the best you could do for an apology? When you admit that, as you say, "Danny Boice, former CEO of the embattled tech startup Trustify," are you saying, "We're sorry Mr. Cranky, you were right? By the way, you should check out all the real estate juggling performed by these two crooks (see about the Boice/Mellon real estate shenanigans here).  ...

AdvisoryCloud Inc 5000 Goofs

AdvisoryCloud is an  Inc 5000 fastest growing company? Bullshit! AdisoryCloud doesn't lead the Nation in Revenue Growth, Customer Growth, or Customer Satisfaction. Dumpster Fire AdvisoryCloud leads the business community in other categories like recent unemployment applications by former employees, Better Business Bureau complaints, and negative Trust Pilot reviews. In the last six months, AdivosryCloud laid-off over 60% of their employees. Yet, according to this article, in the North Bay Business Journal, by Jeff Quakenbush (email Jeff and tell him about your experience with this company, you can email him by linking here: jquackenbush@busjrnl.com), this Band of Douchenozzle's are killing it! These clowns at AdvisoryCloud came in #615 in the 2019 Inc 5000 with a three-year revenue growth of 713 percent. Hey, Jeff Quackenbush, want to know how they got listed at #615? Lie! Lie about your revenue and your growth. Hey Quackenbush, do you know how Inc 5000 audits the self-reported numbers of the applicants for the Inc 5000 list? They don't. So maybe you should take a lesson from my local paper, The Washington Business Journal's,  Andy Medici, and do a little digging. Figure out what's going on in your backyard, because AdvisoryCloud is a horrible failing company (Check these posts). This...

AdvisoryCloud Running on Fumes

I've received multiple calls and comments regarding the scumbags at Advisory Cloud. Today's comment from an anonymous source references another round of layoffs. This one reportedly being 15 people from customer support. That is added to lay off a few months ago of another large group. The Comment: "If anyone out there is still thinking...

I think I might have hurt Ram Reddy’s feelings

My Apology To Ram Reddy, Former Chairman of the Board of Communiclique Hi Ram, I just got the note from your Attorney (see PDF below). It sounds like I hurt your feelings and you think I've been telling untruths about you. I also was informed that it is your contention that you are a victim of the Communiclique fraud and if that is true I'm sorry that you were taken advantage of. I'm also sorry that you didn't know that you were repeating falsehoods (Because I'm feeling contrite and not Cranky you might have noticed that I just didn't call you a liar) when you told prospective investors of Clique's most excellent customer wins and boasted that revenue was in the tens of millions and that the company was growing and worth a billion dollars which might have motivated your friends and associates to invest and now those people join you as victims. Darn, I bet you wish you checked your facts. I know your trusted confidants who invested based on your word sure as shit wish you did. Well, buddy, your attorney seems to feel that I got the story wrong and if that's true, I'm really sorry. Probably not as...

Introspective Leadership – An AdvisoryCloud Tale

Great leaders are Introspective. They listen. They are open to feedback and they are not afraid to admit when they are wrong. One leadership expert could not have said it better when he said, Strategic introspection, which consists of purposely examining one's own motivations, personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, and emotional triggers, is a crucial element of leadership development, In fact, sense of self should be the first step in leadership development. It is common to hear leaders ask "Why does my staff or team member behave this way?" It is less common to hear leaders ask "How does my behavior manifest in this organization?" - Don the Leadership Expert You'd think a leadership "thought leader" as enlightened as Don would be open to feedback and "strategic introspection." Yet when he tweeted out, "I'm now available as an Adisor on AdvisoryCloud. You can request a meeting with me here if you're ever seeking advice."   You think he'd be thankful that Mr. Cranky, in his own delicate Mr. Cranky subtle way responded to his tweet with a, "How's that working out for you" and included this link which points out that AdvisoryCloud is a scam and that people who blindly sign up for the service without doing any...

Andy Powers has been busy lately. I have reports he's started a new business and is out raising money on a new scam company. Stay tuned for more information on that as it develops.
