  • Mitch Hedberg impersonation
  • Disease of the shortcut. First car mini-van with wood panelling down the sides.
  • The human mind thinks 7x faster than we can talk. Create positive momentum. Not literally true because in college I would’ve become a beer. But momentum is created Coast/silk (where relevant)

    Words are the first manifestation of our ideas into the real world..

    Have character – do what you say you’re going to do. Speak out about your conviction to such an ethical company with values and morales that is intentional about positive change.
    Be committed to your customer and to each other. Leadership is measured not by how many followers you have but how many leaders you create.

  • We raise money by selling wristbands and tshirts and 100% of proceeds go to charity. We also sell cds tapes etc and 100% of those proceeds go to me.  How to be funny to make more money – widely read by both people who have bought it so far. Seriously so many of us think we’re born funny or we’re not, one of the most disempowering misconceptions of all time “3 years ago I wasn’t funny” – some of you thinking “I don’t think you’re there yet sparky.”
