One Rocker’s Story

I grew up in a family that didn’t have much money. Even though my dad worked like crazy to provide for us, there was just never enough money to go around. In fact, on many occasions, I remember watching my mom try to create a dinner out of random bits of canned and dry goods that were in left over in the pantry because there was no money for groceries. At other times, relatives would drop off care packages full of food to make sure we had food to eat. And I’ll never forget seeing my dad scrape together whatever spare change he could find – including antique coins out of his own coin collection – just to buy milk, or eggs, or a box of macaroni and cheese for dinner. Now, let me pause for a minute to say I’m not looking for sympathy here. This is just to set the stage for the rest of m...

Bullshit Alert: Why “Design Doesn’t Matter” is Bad Advice

Don’t you just hate it when people give bad advice for their own profit? Recently there’s been quite a few articles popping up online that talk about how "design doesn’t matter," how it’s OK to have an ugly website, that content is the most important thing, or that designers are just trying to rip you off. I have one thing to say about that kind of advice: it’s bullshit. Let me tell you why. There’s been a lot of research done that proves the impact design has on sales. For example, did you know there’s a study that was done by a group of researchers in Canada that proves website visitors make a judgement about your site within the first 1/20th of a second? I don’t care how good your copy is or how usable the site is, if your site doesn’t capture the visitor’s attention in that fir

Or do you immerse yourself completely in your brand like a truffle that’s coated in chocolate? The more you can immerse everything you do in your brand, the more effective it will be. But just how far can you take your branding, and is it even possible to brand more than just your marketing? Good question. Let’s look at your writing; something most people wouldn’t think about branding. Is it possible to brand your writing? Absolutely.

Are You Ready for the Best Damn Ride of Your Life?

One of my favorite rock songs is Rev Theory’s “Hell Yeah” for a couple of reasons. First, it’s a full immersion, high-octane, rock ‘n roll, jam tune. This is one song you can crank up and rock out to anytime you want to get fired up. It’s exactly the type of fast paced, adrenaline pumping song that I love to listen to. Incidentally, I happen to play a wicked air guitar to this song and am an even meaner lip syncer. The second reason I love this song is because it’s the perfect business model. Say what? You heard me. “Hell Yeah” is the perfect business model. But before I get too deep into an explanation, here’s the music video so you can hear the song for yourself to better understand the rest of this post. NOTE: If you really want to get fired up about rocking your business, cr
