I read a great article in NYT today about Louis Rossetto, co-founder of Wired magazine and his new obsession – chocolate!
His startup Tcho is still in stealth mode, and his chocolate likewise is still in the labs (but just released into Beta).
Interestingly he is actually manufacturing the chocolate rather than just remanufacturing as many brands (including the famous Green and Black’s) do. I am looking forward to Chocolate 2.0 hitting UK 2.0 before long!
I have been reading Yes Man by Danny Wallace recently and as a good social experiment someone I know has transformed their business effectiveness by starting to say YES. I am seriously considering starting a business fueled by the power of YES. The key to a success is by always saying YES, don’t argue with the client, even if you are tempted to as it will seriously impact your PE (Potential earnings). The great thing about saying YES is the world is your oyster. Whatever the meaningless task that you are asked to do (no matter how much you disagree) you say YES to.I am sure that most large consultancies employ the YES MAN strategy very effectively and never let sucking up stand in the way of making money!! SAY YES
