At home in Chicago, the holiday festivities are in high gear… From the tree lightings, concerts, ice-skating, Santa appearances and shopping …it seems everyone is full steam ahead. Of course there’s a lot to do personally too—right? Present-shopping for family and friends, gift-wrapping, tree-trimming, holiday card writing and mailing, house-decorating, holiday meal-planning and making, cookie baking and on and on… There is a lot to do, but somehow we manage to get it all done each[…]

I was inspired. Those three words describe how I felt the first time I saw Zig Ziglar speak over 40 years ago. A large part of the reason I ended up in speaking was because of author, salesman, and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar. Yesterday morning the news of Zig’s death after a bout of pneumonia inspired people to share their memories and stories of Zig. Today I’ll share one of mine. A number of years[…]

Today the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving—a day to give thanks, be with family, eat too much and watch football. But it’s also known for horror stories… Turkeys that come out of the oven still raw, family feuds, laughing so hard you spit wine across the white linen table cloth… Getting stuck at an airport because of inclement weather and awkward moments where Aunt Edna imbibes too much and curses everyone out. More fun has been poked[…]

At a past No B.S. INFO-Summit, I had the opportunity to present insights on copywriting alongside ‘master of dark arts copywriting extraordinaire’ and fellow grizzled veteran of many wars, John Carlton. John worked with Sir Gary Halbert, Prince of Print, intimately, for many years, thus earning a Purple Heart and a grand collection of stories; most not suitable for public telling. Carlton is a renaissance man, rich with life experience and right up at the[…]

A couple of weeks ago I returned home from Fast Implementation Bootcamp to find things out of place… When I walked in my home, I knew immediately someone or something had been there. Papers I had left on the table were askew…two of the pottery mugs I made were now on the floor, not on the counter where I had left them ready to ship out… And there were pieces of dried fruit on my[…]

Yesterday I arrived in Nashville for what promises to be the best INFO-Summit GKIC has ever held. I know, I know. You’ve heard that before. But the reason why I say it with such confidence is I’ve never seen so many big hitters from the information marketing world in one place before. Picture bumping elbows with Rich Schefren, Alex Mandossian, Ali Brown, Dave VanHoose, Yanik Silver, Dave Dee and Vince Palko. Imagine having a conversation[…]

A few years ago, Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger discussed some of the reasoning behind the purchase of Lucasfilm Ltd., the film company behind Star Wars.

When you look at your life, interests and business, you’ll discover that you too have a lot[…]
