This came to me yesterday while having brunch on the way home from the weekend in downtown Orlando.

Why write about this?

Because i’m brainstorming podcast recipes.

Brand You: Tell your personal story

Great reminder about staying focused on the basics.

 

 

(Above) Brand You: Tell your personal story.

Great reminder.

The year was 2008 or 2009.

Our new Disney Institute Vice President, Jeff James, often walked past the cube i shared with Jack Santiago.

By the way, because office space was so limited, nearly everyone at Disney Institute shared a cube.

On one brief encounter, i invited Jeff into my cube and used Jack’s bookshelf (all my business books were at my home office) as the center of the vision i had for Disney Institute.

i said to Jeff, “Jeff, in the children’s video genre, what is the average household percentage of Disney videos in every children’s category?”

Our educated guess – from personal experience – is the percentage is overwhelmingly high for Disney videos.

Then i asked, pointing at Jack’s bookshelves, “What if every business leader across the globe had an overwhelmingly high percentage of Disney Institute business books on their office bookshelves?”

Currently, Be Our Guest is the only published “Disney Institute” business book.

My Summer 2018 focus is to get the next seven Disney and Disney Institute business books written, then published.

The business world is waiting, even if they are unaware these books are coming.

And this morning, i’m just days away from the first of six Summer writing retreats. All seven books are currently in the two-thirds done stage.

The Draw Shop is jeff noel’s new BFF

Was talking yesterday with the wife of the co-founder of The Draw Shop. They do one thing remarkably well. They do white board animation to explain things to people.

The people they explain things to are people who most likely would love a product or service if they understood it better. And in the current state, they just don’t “get it”.

Through The Draw Shop’s unique, animated storytelling, the audience finally “gets it”.

i reminded Anitra that when Eric and i met in Denver a few weeks ago, i proposed a crazy idea. If the first video blows me away, i’ll pay them double. If it doesn’t i pay nothing, yet keep the video.

Eric Kerr said he’d think about it.

Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

Ever catch yourself in an unintentional accident that became a miracle?

The dinner conversation with close friends last night drifted into why I write five daily, differently-themed blogs.

(… a run of four-plus years and 8k+ posts)

Won’t go on and on about it (because I did that last night), but will say three things:

  1. It was an accident
  2. It was never a goal
  3. It truly is a miracle

Ever catch yourself in an unintentional accident that became a miracle?
