Women’s Equality Day – Celebrating Passage of The 19th Amendment

By Craig Daniels | Aug 26, 2018

Celebrate Women’s Equality Day When something has been around all our lives it’s easy to forget the reality of the past. In the U.S. the 19th Amendment to the Constitution giving women the right to vote was only passed in 1920. That’s right, only a hundred years ago. There are still a few people alive…

National Dog Day – August 26

By Craig Daniels | Aug 23, 2018

  Having trouble coming up with a day to attach your business to? Offhand I can’t think of a better day than National Dog Day for a business to connect to for a flash (guerrilla marketing) marketing campaign. People love pets and dogs are still the number one companion animal people bring home to love…

Send A Card To A Friend Day – February 7th

By Craig Daniels | Feb 5, 2018

If ever there was an opportunity for a small business to reach out and connect with customers this day is it. Think about it for a moment, and then ask yourself what value do you put on your relationship with your clients and customers. Are they more than just a dollar bill? Are you grateful…

Expecting Technology To Fill the Gap

By Craig Daniels | Dec 19, 2017

Expecting Technology to fill the gap is a bit like repeatedly smashing your skull into a door to get to the other side. The door may be an illusion and the pain we feel with each bang a creation of our mind, but the provisional reality tells us this action will certainly cause brain injury…

By Craig Daniels | Dec 17, 2017

A few decades ago I came across a book titled Do It! (let’s get off our buts) written by Peter McWilliams. Right from the beginning I loved the book and bought a few extra copies, copies which I gave to a few friends I thought might find them useful (they didn’t). Each of us has…

Do We Need To Distract And Amuse Endlessly?

By Craig Daniels | Nov 25, 2017

Yesterday while walking around the perimeter of the local public golf course I was struck at the dichotomy of playing golf within an area surrounded by a neatly built stone wall, and the outside world we all inhabit. The reality within the golf course was created within thoughts and plans constructed ordered and focused while…

Ignite Your Marketing With Story-Telling

By Craig Daniels | Nov 11, 2017

The small business owner nearly fell out of the chair as she scanned the latest marketing invoice handed to her from the account manager.”This is an estimate for a year, correct?” she asked, the account manger lowered his gaze and said, “no it’s for the last 3 months.” If you’re like most small business owners…

Buffalo Latte Will Give You An Extra Kick

By Craig Daniels | Oct 19, 2017

In my last post I wrote about how creativity is connecting ideas or objects that would not traditionally seem to go together and in the process creating something that is often recognized as innovative.

Australian Flying Burritos With a Little Help From Google

By Craig Daniels | Oct 18, 2017

    Creativity is all about making connections, connections far afield of the obvious. Google’s plunge down under in Australia creates a marriage of burritos and Drones hits the creative category, at least a little. At least I think it does.
