  • I Guess I’m Not Much of a Marketer After All

    … I’ve been working in marketing since the 90’s, and I think I have a pretty good grasp on it. But there is a campaign I’ve been working on this year that has been a real disappointment. You see, I’ve been trying to raise funds for AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer, and it’s been difficult to get even a $5 donation from people I’ve known…

    … I finished the Tough Mudder a week ago, and I did it for a couple reasons… to prove to myself that I could do it, and to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

  • I Couldn’t Get a Job on Capitol Hill

    Adults start asking kids what they want to be when they grow up from a young age. I was never quite sure as a kid, and even towards the end of college I didn’t have a clue. Somehow, I got it in my head that I wanted to work in an office for a Senator or member of the House of Representatives. There were a few problems with my plan, though.

  • I Took Payola in the Summer of 1988

    … I’m not proud to admit this, but in the summer of 1988 I accepted payola. The whole thing reminds me of a dramatization I’d once seen on TV. A record executive tried to coerce a DJ into playing a record. After he refused, they started playing hardball with Johnny Fever, a popular disc jockey at the Cincinnati radio station, WKRP. Johnny…
