Hey you, Mr Snake-oil salesman

OC Tanner
An executive forwarded me a link to an OC Tanner riff on culture. Screen shot of the video transcript.



Do you know what a snake-oil salesman means?

“This special blend of ingredients will cure what ails you.”

Their slick and polished messages prey on the victim’s fears and hopes.

The product is only as good as the vision the marketing people can create. OC Tanner has phenomenal marketing.

Shot an email reply back to the executive asking for her key insights from reading the article and watching the video.

My purpose, to open the discussion to refocus her on the fact i’m leading her in a way OC Tanner can’t compete with.

Buy low, sell high

Disney Stock split history


(photo: Disney stock split history, last split was 3-for-1 in 1998 when it had reached $111)

One of the first priorities beginning the day after retirement is making a one-time, penalty-free 401k withdrawal.

Disney stock has been as high as $91 this year.

It went down to $81 just a week ago.

Timing, and courage, are of the essence.

The stock market is doing well, but terrorists could change that in a single day.
