Leveraging a Bird Poop Situation

There are a lot of things I don't know.  There's one thing I do know.  This is the first time I've used "poop" in a blog headline.   I went to the car wash yesterday.  It was around 7:00pm and this time of year it's dusk.  My Father-In-Law was kind enough to lend us his car and I wanted to return it all shiny and clean, hence my last minute trip to the car wash.  I've been in Dallas for a little over a year and I will tell you they take their car washing seriously.  This car wash is branded…See More

Summer Camp Withdrawals

That’s what I’m having.  It’s bound to happen.  I spend 3 months getting pumped for what I consider to be the best event of the year.  Followed by 3 days on a high without a drop of alcohol (well maybe a beer or 2…). Then Summer Camp comes to an end. The withdrawals I’m experiencing are different than one might expect.  My withdrawals are laced with inspiration and excitement.  It’s like I was just exposed to this supernatural energy source and the molecules in my mind, body and soul were…See More

Biography
Started my career by working for the Rat - the original Chuck E. Cheese Pizza Time Theatre based in Sunnyvale Ca, then it was on to Denny's, Inc. in SoCal where I signed up as a Regional Marketing Manager. Denny's was purchased by Spartan Foods and I was relocated to Spartanburg SC as Marketing Director. After that I went to work for one of Applebee's most successful franchisees - Thomas &King, Inc. based in Lexington KY. After 14 years there I left to start my own consulting business.
Years in the Industry
30 years and looking forward to 30 more!!!!!!

The Brand Gap

Posted on May 26, 2012 at 10:31am 0 Comments

I have spent a lot of time thinking about a restaurant company’s worst nightmare - The Brand Gap.  Executives work hard to evolve their brands.  Some need a complete make over.  Others continue to tweak and tinker to make sure their brands remain relevant in an ever-changing marketplace.  They spend hours in meetings reviewing research, analyzing data and conducting focus groups trying to ensure their concept has a point of difference that resonates with consumers.…

Why I Wish I Lived In Cleveland!

Posted on March 28, 2012 at 4:30pm 1 Comment



At times I feel displaced.  I spent my first 18 years in one town then I started my life as a ping pong ball.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved my life and wouldn’t trade my experiences for the world. 

After high school it was 4 years in Ashland Ohio for…

Birthdays Are The Best

Birthdays Are The Best!

 

Ah yes, I just turned another page on the birthday calendar.  I’m working really hard to avoid the trite, worn out sayings like, “Time flies when you are having fun” or “It beats the alternative” or “If I knew I was going to live to be this old I would’ve taken better care of myself”.  I know I’m a sap – birthdays matter to me. 

Once, when I turned 30-something I missed a birthday.  Actually the birthday occurred but nobody I was with that day…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
