Email From Laura Valente’s Trout: Nik, I understand this post is driving a lot of traffic and its good for business. Is there a scenario in the near future where the post can come down quietly and spare Laura the pain of this being online for her family to see. Also, amazingly, these girls are turning the corner and doing good work on the bikini business. I read your site daily. Isn’t part of the purpose not just to make an example of bad actors but ALSO to get these girls to change? I’m telling you that is happening here. I’m meeting with them a couple of times a week to work their business plan, give advice and offer guidance. Completely separate from my arrangement with Laura. Besides your business objectives, which I understand, can’t we be human too? Give them a chance.
