A favorite expression of one of my ex-husbands (who is dead now, I should add) is "pioneers get arrows in their backs." He wasn't necessarily a pioneer, although he liked to think of himself that way. He was a guy who smoked too much pot and was crazier if he stopped taking his meds. He was half crazy anyway. But that's what seminar speakers basically are. Flim-flam men. Barkers.
I have met a true pioneer. That person died earlier this month in Sacramento. In fact, when I first met her, she gave me the best piece of advice I've probably ever received.
