> RRrantnrave// Tickets and Bumper Stickers 4 out of 5 voices in my head tell me to go for it. Find it above. Thanks Clint Richardson. Ticket for Super Bowl Ad – north of $5 million during game time – starts at kickoff until no time left on clock. Do the math and it’s a good deal. Expensify will roll the dice with a $5.3 million dollar ad and try to be funny. Accounting humor? Good luck. Atlanta legend Gladys Knight will sing the national anthem. Great save on the music choice NFL. I don’t know why they didn’t choose Eric Church for half-time show, Record Year. Midnight Train could increase surprisingly soft Atlanta Super Bowl ticket prices, where right now end zone seats go for $2,500 each. If Brady and Brees end up in the Super Bowl, that price goes up to $3,000. (New England money and, of course, Saints sell the house to get in). I’m in if Mahomes wins but left town if Brees and Brady show up. Both home teams, KC and NE win today. Wait until Super Bowl day 4pm and get end zone tickets for $1200 – brokers unloading inventory. They make money on early birds.
> I wonder why nobody has to ask Patriots are you a purpose driven team or hear Mahomes brag I am a purpose driven quarterback. This started out kind of cute in business, but it’s way overcooked. By the way, I have never met a successful Entrepreneur who was not purpose driven, which, by the way, is the least of our worries – CRM standards implemented for the sales and support team is another matter. Annoy consultants – hire CRM.
> I went to lunch with Rachel Condon and Elizabeth Tatum, and one of the two pays $220 month in dog food from The Farmer’s Dog. Try Jim Dandy dog food, started by an Entrepreneur who told slaughter houses he would remove their waste for free and turned it into perfectly chunky dog food – no cost of goods – Show me that business model and I’m in.
> Going to give a second look at meal kit model with Hello Fresh. I signed up – as Janie Fricke sang – “It ain’t easy being easy.” I don’t understand why she was so underestimated when her hit song “If your heart is not in it” has been, by the way, copied by every genre of music when it comes to love songs. Being underestimated is a good thing as long as you do not stay there. Her brand was undervalued as a back up M Haggard said she probably had the purest voice in Nashville.
> William Faulkner left a good post office job in the city with no job in sight to replace it. He said he was tired of being at the beck and call of every SOB who could afford a 2 cent stamp. Faulkner did not have the temperament for business’s biggest emotion: Reciporicity. I read a great research paper on why people give you referrals – not to help you – but think they will get something back for your great job.
> By the way, Janie’s best song was “Thinkin of a rendezvous.”
