Have you seen this Fact-Checker song spoof re truth in the Trump era? »

Have you seen this Randy Rainbow video parody on Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and the Trump administration? Heard this on CBC, Canada’s national radio station, last night. They played the song only, which starts about a minute in. It illustrates a point I made in my book, Step Into The Spotlight!, which is that sometimes […]

Are YOU as brutally honest with prospects as this Girl Scout selling cookies? »

Check out this hilarious video of Mike Rowe reading a letter from a Girl Scout to her dad’s rich friend trying to pitch him on buying girl scout cookies. There’s nothing like the sincerity of kids. We should remember & incorporate some of this as entrepreneurs. Nothing like admitting a vulnerability to win the trust […]

We have a saying in Peebles… »

We have a saying in Peebles… In Step Into The Spotlight!, I shared that it’s key to have a signature saying. Something that people identify with you and only you. Like when Chef Emeril Lagasse says “Bam!” Or when Jeff Probst of Survivor says “The Tribe Has Spoken.” So, last night, I’m watching an episode […]

In this TV commercial, the setting is a fall fair competition where Classico pasta sauce LOSES to the homemade sauce of these Italian grandmas and the Classico chefs are smiling anyway–all the way to the bank. It’s a variation of the Avis, #2, We Try Harder campaign from years ago that’s […]

Was Hillary’s Teleprompter “SIGH” Deliberate or Dumb? »

It’s all over the Internet. Hillary reads the stage directions right off the teleprompter. HUGE contrast with her opponent, the spontaneous I-say-whatever-pop-into-my-head Trump who was all over this tweeting his delight. So, here’s the question. Is there any possibility that verbalizing the “SIGH” was deliberate? A rhetorical device? Or is she on autopilot at this […]

Is This Realtor NUTS or Is She BRILLIANT? »

A Canadian realtor has created a “beer commercial” type advertisement for a 3 bedroom home in Courtice, ON. She’s been featured in The Huffington Post Canada & The Toronto Star and her video has over 11,000 views in just a week! Watch video here and then comment below! Is she a brilliant marketing MASTERMIND or […]

Can You SPOT the FAKE? »

Are You Sick of FAKE “Real People” in Ads? I am. Here’s one that really makes me cringe every times it’s on the air. O.K. They admit at the beginning that they’re actors. But they don’t have to. It’s such an obvious case of over-acting! Compare this to a REAL “Real People” T.V. commercial. I […]
