Renting is not fun!

March 30, 2017 Leave a comment

AuthorUmm, I mean renting a house isn’t fun. Renting an exhibit is an entirely different situation and can really be the way to go these days…

But you must wonder, what put me on this tangent?
Just reflecting on when our refrigerator died last fall and our landlord Steve did not fix the problem immediately.

My boyfriend Neil and I have been excellent tenants who’ve taken great care of the property and paid rent on time every month for 4 years, yet Steve said it would take a whole week to get the new fridge in – WHAT?!?!?!

AuthorWith EXHIBITORLIVE a week plus in the rear view mirror, it is tempting to recap the buzz of the show floor and all the groovy emotional points of the show, but I am going to skip that as it has been done and I am going to focus on a very serious matter. The matter of sharing what is apparently an extremely important matter and cornerstone of the 2017 Optima EXHIBITORLIVE experience – WHO WON THE DANG GUMBALL COUNTING CONTEST!

AuthorWhile I cannot speak for everyone that happened upon the giant bubble gum machine in the sky that stuck out like a… well like a… well like a giant bubble gum machine in the sky, I can speak for the attendees that I did get the chance to talk to.

To summarize, let’s just say that if they did not believe the pre-show marketing blasts, or were on the “bubble” as to the validity of those announcements, they partook in the Kool-Aid, so to speak, saw the light and truly left as believers in what 4K Print Technology could achieve.

See, the DSCG came out of a marketing and ad agency background and from what I understand, had an ah-ha moment a few years back about getting shaving tools and advice and realized that 4 out of 5 dentists agree that most men have no clue as to what they are buying and why. Read more…

July 8, 2016 2 comments

AuthorI was outside the other evening doing my normal thing: watering and deadheading (i.e. removing spent blooms from) my flowers. This is usually a meditative time and I do my best to think about anything except work. But on this particular evening, I had a work-related thought creep in that was actually kind of cool – it occurred to me that gardening duties have a lot in common with generating and maintaining sales.  Read more…

AuthorPlease forgive the grammar in the title; I am verbatim quoting a lyric from the title track of Rod Stewart’s 1971 album “Every Picture Tells a Story” and yes, I am old enough to remember hearing this song on the radio before it was relegated to the Classic (aka ‘Oldies’) Radio Stations.
