I like smart people. I like to learn something.
Which is why I don’t watch TV singing competitions, where no one goes on to glory and it’s only about the ratings and I’m more interested in seeing “Shark Tank.”
That’s today’s world. Used to be everybody wanted to be a musician and have a hit record, today everybody wants to be an entrepreneur and go on “Shark Tank” and get an investment.
But they’re oftentimes so uninformed, they can’t possibly be successful. But unlike in music, the sharks tell the truth.
Kinda like the balloon guy back in January. A shark asked…”How can I make money on this?”
That was one of the great things said last week. That the balloon man was a great SALESMAN, but he hadn’t proven he was a great MANAGER! That if he wanted to grow his business he had to hire other salesmen.
And that his franchising idea was bogus.
But smart people never take their eye from the prize, they know it’s not about feelings, but winning.
