Celebrate Every Day with Garden Gnomes

After recently speaking to a group of fine folks, I left with a killer idea about how to use a tad more humor while at the same time boosting your company’s morale. The short story is that they have a Gnome that travels to a new desk every couple of months based on who has done something extraordinary. Yes, an ordinary garden gnome to celebrate the extraordinary. The beauty of this killer idea is that it doesn’t only reward top achievers. It could also be used to reward people who “finally cleaned up the snack room,” or were simply “in an infectious good mood on Monday.”

Do Professional Speakers Every Feel Like Frauds

In a podcast I interviewed professional speaker Mark Sharenbroich about several things, but one thing we talked about is the concept of “The Imposter Syndrome.” I think this very experienced and talented speaker’s answer will surprise (and delight) you. You can listen to our conversation right on your computer. Or your iPod, or… Turn up your speakers, and HEAR the podcast here.

Humor Resources

I have a new product out for people who WANT TO GIVE A SPEECH WITHOUT LOOKING LIKE AN IDIOT. It was created with 29-Emmy winning speaker Bill Stainton, and is temporarily on discount. It’s a good product, it’s instant, and it is on special. Learn more here.

Humor Links!!! (Cool Places to Visit)

Entertainment used to sell! Check out this (shortened) video of a bride cutting off her hair. It has since been revealed to be actresses, but started off as though it was real. Turns out it is a promo for hair care products.

My point? Entertainment (and humor) is related to business now more than ever as people’s sophistication with advertising increases.

Thanks! But before you do, think about this: what if
the next newsletter has the winning lotto numbers, and
every reader wins… but you? Hey, it could happen.
So don’t be too hasty.


First of all, I hate Spam…
(unless it’s fried). I never rent, trade or sell my
email list to anyone for any reason whatsoever. Not
even if they give me $1 Million. (If they give
me $3 Million, you might be in trouble, but

seriously, what are the chances?) You’ll never
get an unsolicited email from a stranger

as a result of joining this list. Not that
I’m not pretty strange, but… well… you get the idea.


Finally, some readers love to find typos, grammar errors and other sundry goofs. I occasionally leave them in just to make those people happy. So if you found some… Yippee! It’s you’re lucky day.

If you’re still reading this far down, you REALLY need to find a hobby. It’s over! All done.

Seriously dude. It’s time to get back to work. Don’t you have some email to return or something?

Ok, now you’re just pushing it. You need some serious help with time management. Move on baby! This thing is over!

Since you’re still here, here’s a bonus YouTube video for you. This thing made me laugh. Hope you enjoy it. It is totally worth 4 minutes of your time. (And apparently you have 4 minutes.) It’s of an opera at a market in Europe. It’ll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

You must be craving more. Why are you here? I bet you have something that you SHOULD be doing but don’t want to. Clean your desk. Get coffee. Call your mom.

There has to be a better way to procrastinate than this!

Since you’re here …might as well check out my blog. (Hey! If you can’t fight it, embrace it!)
