Just Do Your Damn Job Already

Politicians… I hate ‘em. They offend me. They make me want to punch something – like a shih-tzu (although they already look like someone got there before me). Politicians spew, expound, wax poetic, twist, massage, and congeal the language that I cherish into convenient, little, sound bites

The Brand Chef is a Jerk!

Yep. I’m a jerk… a snob… a ruffian (just look at my profile photo). Or maybe I’m just a little more prudent with the people I associate with in my social and professional networks than some? Case in point: LinkedIn is a great business-networking tool. I’ve only

Cooking 101 – Turn The Flame Down

Marketing Mistakes – A Baker’s Dozen

Over the years, I’ve seen some incredibly successful marketing campaigns and some pretty dismal ones. Two questions I’m continually asked are: “What works?” and, conversely, “What doesn’t?” My answer is usually something along the lines of “It depends,” which is usually followed by the ubiquitous blank stare…

This Rump Is Brought To You By…

Remember back, just a few years, a cartoon with Daffy Duck where he pulls his tail feathers up and exposes, emblazoned in all its glory, the WB logo – smack dab on his protruding rump? As a kid, (and admittedly, even now) I thought a logo on
