Per the old saying, “Give the people what they want” and you will succeed. Which makes me wonder… do you know what your customers want? And how do you know? Do you concentrate on some of what they want, being so good at one or two things that your clients don’t mind your shortcomings in other areas?

                                     FALLING IN LOVE: A BUSINESS MODEL

As part of our company’s move to a new, bigger warehouse, we had to buy and install 6,000 feet of storage racks. We got the standard three quotes, all pretty much the same price, but one of the vendors (also named Rick) said something that stuck with me: “I’ll be there for you in case there’s a problem.”

Sure enough, we had a problem. Rick, who claimed to have some thirty years of experience, recommended a configuration that turned out to be completely unworkable.

Change. You can hate the thought of it or can’t wait for it. One thing for sure, though: change is as inevitable as death and taxes. So it’s how we adapt to or create change that determines how best we’re going to cope with it.

For the kid turning 16, knowing they can now get their driver’s license is a change they’d looked forward to forever. Yet that change in life creates angst for parents, worried about the risk of accident and the foreboding nature of their child’s growing independence.

                       go green. save money

There’s a drycleaner in my neighborhood that brags that, “The only greener way to care for your clothes is to use a rock and a stream.”

That drycleaner has no solar panels, uses florescent lighting (which remains fully lit 24 hours a day, though they are closed for ten of those hours), has no reusable or even biodegradable packaging, and is in fact a perc cleaner. Why do they advertise themselves as green? “Because consumers like green.”

Oh.

And why don’t they don’t incorporate any green initiatives into their plant operations? “We’ve run our business the same way for fifty years, we see no reason to change.”

 redcarpet red carpet interview

Hollywood embraces The Green Garmento!

Perhaps you’ve heard about a movie that’s opening this week, THE INTERNSHIP.

It’s got a great cast — Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Rose Byrne, John Goodman and Will Farrell — and it’s really smart and funny.

But this story of middle-aging guys trying to compete with young brainiacs for jobs at Google has something else going on; the film is filled with new innovations that will soon become commonplace. It’s got three or four versions of new-fangled bicycles, cars without drivers, the Google Glasses. Oh...and in an effort to show the future standard of drycleaning packaging, The Green Garmento is featured as the official Google reusable dry cleaning bag.
