Cheating.

They teach us our whole
   lives not to do it.
But who made the rules?
    Why don’t they
  want you to cheat?
Cheating is merely

To grow from 16 – 1000 people at a pace not seen by many agencies, meant breaking a few rules. If you follow the rules of new business - if you follow the same path of every other agency – you can expect the same mediocre results.

Bogusky believes most are approaching it all bass-ackward. Most think about new business when they’re desperate for it. In his mind that’s way too late. Learn the CP+B strategy to getting more proactive, to breaking the rules... to stealing more business and winning more pitches.
