Talk about self absorption - Lance Winslow

Thanks to Ace at Ace of Spades we get to share in the life of a Mr. Lance Winslow:
Lance Winslow: Washing Cars, Kicking Ass
In one of the longest "About Us" sections of a website ever, an owner of several professional "mobile washing" companies informs us of his Warrior Genes and Patrician Extraction from the Mayflower crowd as well as his all-around athleticism, noting, for example, he played soccer in youth leagues for seven years.

This goes on for, just guessing here, around 2 or 3,000 words. Several of these accomplishments are actually notable. Others are... sort of notable, kinda, but we usually don't talk about them past age 20 (like being voted Most Likely to Succeed in high school). Some are just... him telling us what he did at his various jobs and are entirely unremarkable.

Lance Winslow's relentless enthusiasm for the myriad accomplishments of Lance Winslow just isn't as infectious as he might hope.
The page in question can be found here: Lance Winslow A taste of the greatness of Lance Winslow:
Recently Lance's genealogy and ancestry was traced all the way back to the Mayflower Voyage. Both Edward Winslow, later a Governor and Governor Bradford of the Mayflower are ancestors to Mr. Winslow.
Mr. Winslow constantly stays abreast of information in all of WashGuy's 22 industry market sectors and reads over 160 paper periodicals per month, views 75 online newspapers, newsletters, & e-zines daily. Lance after leaving college has been self-educated taking his 3000 plus title business library with him on the road. He usually reads three books per week in his quest for knowledge & 10-12 white papers per day. Lance is the only franchisor in the history of franchising to have a corporate office on wheels. Lance has been literally living in the Blitz Mobile Command Center for the past 6 years.
Lance is also a writer and has written over 12,000 online articles, which are posted at;,
A chink in the awesomeness that is Lance Winslow is that these articles are often just replies to internet posts -- hell, I have over 7,000 published "articles" on this blog alone let alone all the email I have sent over the last twenty years (starting pre-public internet days with FIDO and social networks like ILink and others). His latest article consists of the following:
How to Legally Sell a Used Car By Yourself
Posted by lancewinslow under Legal | Tags: bill of sale, car, vehicle | No Comments

The first thing you need before selling a used car is a used car bill of sale. This will transfer ownership of an item (the car) to another owner legally. It will include things like the odometer reading, the VIN number, and other details about the vehicle.

In all selling your own car is not very difficult. All you need is a bill of sale and to transfer the title.
I'm glad you told em that Lance -- I would have never known otherwise... Talk about being a legend in your own mind. The guy does spend a lot of time working but this level of self-glorification is a bit extreme.


I believe that Lance Winslow now has over 14,000 articles written so I guess he lied, he does not have 13,000, why is he so busy trying to underestimate his accomplishments, something sounds fishy here?

You know what is completely amazing? It's that you have clearly misrepresented what I am all about. In fact, taking 4-sentences out of a 300 word article, that was most likely written sometime in 2007, and is one of 13,000 online articles as an example is really stretching it. Indeed, you have an axe to grind, not sure what it is Dave H. or even who on Earth you are to judge me, but have fun, and how many hits do you think you get on your blog anyway? Nice Cheap Shot, proud of yourself?
