Okay I admit I was going to stop this Breaking Bad thing. Well, too Bad. Here I am again with a piece that will inspire some of you. If you thought you have to be naturally charismatic to pitch successfully, have a look at Vince Gilligan.


Says Gilligan: “I don’t think I was boring these guys but they had this faraway look in their eyes of “What the f- hell is this guy telling us”. And as I’m pitching I’m hearing myself out loud I’m thinking this is insane, no-one is ever gonna buy this as a TV show. Anyway, so I go home they shake hands and I would go home like ‘this is a waste of time’.”
