This is gonna be a slightly different email than usual. Mainly a ranting of mine. But sometimes in life, words beg to be spilled onto a page. Anyhoo, let’s dive in… Many a bizniss man and wooman has spewed before an auditorium full of TED Talk listeners about how you should chase your passion in business. And quite frankly, I think this is awful advice. Why? Because let’s say, your passion is to own…

It’s that time of the year again. My car is due its annual checkup at the local garage. Don’t ya just love ‘em? Anyway, it takes me back to my cousin last year. For a while, he sensed his clutch was on its way out. So like most responsible drivers, he took his Ford to a close-by mechanic. And as feared, his squeaky clutch did need urgent replacing. Pricey…

Came across a bizarre yet fascinating news story today. According to this article: A huge black bear managed to let himself into a Colorado family home one afternoon. Thankfully, nobody was indoors at the time. However… Little did this 350+ pound carnivore know. A grainy webcam was capturing the whole thing.

When salesmen do nothing but pitch, pitch, pitch – and not build rapport – you’re immediately turned off. Sure, sales can still be made by this dated approach. (You’d be…

Caught myself watching an awesome episode of Power last night. While this bloody, drug-pushing Netflix series isn’t for everyone. It does dish up some valuable sales and marketing lessons. (Warning to Power fans: possible spoiler alert). Last night, there was a scene where Angela Valdez (a high-up fed) met with former colleague, John, who wants to nail her head to the wall for a slew of crimes. Sensing that…

So, something horrifying happened to Yours Unclassy last night. Just moments away from nodding off to sleep, I felt a crawling sensation working its way up my arm. Instinctually, I swiped at it and immediately sat up. Before you could count to “Z”, my phone’s torch was on full blast and I began x-raying the entire bed. Much to my fine lady’s displeasure, I paid no attention to her…
