DAWG Talk: No Originality

I’m an attentive guy, if I say so. I try to listen intently, and observe the details of any situation I’m in; whether it’s making a new introduction, conducting and interview or just following the progression of a ball game. I consciously key in on little things.

For me, the little things make the difference. That’s how I discern one product, service, or in the case of a ball game, play, from another. Quite honestly, it’s getting harder and… Continue

Eating Off The Floor



I walked into the men's room, flicked on the light and stopped dead in my tracks.




This was the cleanest restroom I had ever seen anywhere in the entire world!



I'm serious. The linoleum floor was so sparkling clean; I just had to test it. I knelt down and wiped the floor with two different fingers. ‘Nothing. I looked at my fingers. I smelled them. I looked at the floor again; and just 'knew' that I could literally lick the floor without… Continue

What’s Your Unique Selling Proposition?

Can you spout your USP off to someone in less than three sentences?



If you don't know what it is, or can't succinctly say it, you may want to give it some serious thought.



Formulating your 'USP' is the most important strategic marketing task you will ever do. Implementing it well is likely the second most important.



What exactly is the USP? I hear people using many different variations of it. I've even heard the USP to mean: unique selling… Continue

MAKE MY DAY---JOIN THE GROUP!

This is a great FohBoh idea for sharing stories about this great industry! Thanks to Kristen.



Long ago, in a land far away, called Australia, I was managing three different huge shopping center food service developments. I reported to a fellow named Geoff Gribble. He was a specialist in supermarkets. I was the National Food Services Manager, supposedly the specialist in restaurants and QSR's.



One day, he called me into his office and handed me a letter addressed to him… Continue

The Family Sports Bar & Grill

I was driving by a restaurant location recently and I spied a sign that said: "Family Restaurant & Sports Bar-Grill." It made me wonder just exactly what this place really was. Was it a family restaurant, appealing to a man and wife with a couple of young kids or teenagers? Or was it a loud, raucous bar with 17 television screens all blaring…

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
