A personal recap and an early 2019 gift

2018. What a year. By far and away, we had our best year ever in our business. In great part, this was because Karen came onboard the Dave Dee, Inc. train full time as CFO. It just might have been the overall best year of my entire life as well. From losing 28 pounds of weight and by doing so, …

The Scrooge School Of Persuasion & Influence

My Christmas movie streak continues with the watching of “Scrooge” last night. For the record, the best adaptation of A Christmas Carol is the one starring Alastair Sim.

We were fired up because of the previous week’s …

I’m about to start day 2 of a workshop I’m doing with my friend Kim Walsh Phillips for 25 folks. Yesterday, we had an emergency: At lunch, we ran out of pasta salad! Oh, the humanity!

Fraud Exposed!

I’m sitting in the Delta lounge at O’hare, and I want to alert you to an egregious fraud being perpetrated on my fellow passengers. In the lounge, Delta claims to be serving the famous Chicago hotdogs. But, alas, it is isn’t so. There is NO poppy-seed bun. NO neon green relish. NO celery salt. And, most shockingly, some people are …
