Selling the product with heart doesn't always work. Selling that the employees that work for you have heart can.

This was great, Doug. I've often said what good is making the best pizza in town if no one even knows you're baking it?

I am on Twitter, have updated my LinkedIn profile & have a Google alert set up. Facebook is not for me but I don't HATE it...just don't like it for me.
Social media is a great thing once you get the hang of it. Thanks for the heads up, 'favorite marketing guru.'

Drive-through resolutions are often not resolutions at all. Thanks for this, Doug.

Fantastic advice. As someone who is just getting his feet wet as a speaker/presenter, this should help me keep my audience interested...and AWAKE!

Great advice, Doug. Even if the gift is something you can't or don't really use, I'd bet you could find someone that would benefit from it. Regifting isn't necessarily a bad thing either.

Took me a while to buy into this show but once I did, I was hooked. Great episode choices. I'd add the Junior Mint episode, Ugly Baby, and the Peterman Reality Tour episodes. All so well done.

Renee, I intend to make you rethink your ice cream eating experience. There are some incredible dry cereals out there for topping ice cream. Allow me to list a few:
*Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Try some of your favorite cereals as a not only delicious but healthier topping choices.
And with that, I think I'll make myself a sundae.

@AmyMccTobin Three good calls there. Could also add Earl Weaver, Jerry Glanville (Elvis never did claim his ticket) & I'd even go with John Kruk.
Sports is FILLED with characters. This list can easily triple in size.

I saw Lou throw a bat into the dugout at Earl Weaver when I was a kid. He was just a wild man. I'd like to toss Chi Chi Rodriguez's name out there. The 'Zorro' move when he'd sink a putt was priceless. Rick Dempsey also a character. His rain delay schtick was a riot.
But can we ever truly know the time of the wedding ceremony? If we put the time on the invitation, it should simply read, "Ask the bride."

@WineEveryday "Otis! He LOVES us!"
Just love that film. One of the most quotable movies ever.

Someone else who loves, "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball." I thought I was alone there.
So many fantastic movie quotes. You could make this a multi-part piece. Just a few off of the top of my head. I'll let you & your readers figure out the films:
"Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads."
"Fat, drunk & stupid is no way to go through life son."
"You're mocking me, aren't you?"
"If you can't be an athlete, be an athletic supporter."
"Leave the gun. Take the cannoli."
"we haven't seen anything like this in world-class dodgeball since the Helsinki incident of 1919 and I think we all remember how THAT turned out."
"Hey Tanner does he go to the bathroom for you too?"
I'm sure I can come up with many, many more. Thanks for sharing your favorites.
Very good advice. It's worth keeping a copy of these tips close by your computer. If more people used them before hitting the 'send' button, we'd all be better off.

@AmyMccTobin Now I know your Boston bias may be clouding your judgment but The Yankees have had some very good pitchers to work with Mo. I think one duo left off was Bucky Dent/Aaron Boone. Oh wait, they were only a good pair against the Red Sox. ;)

So hard to limit this to just 12. Might be a good idea to run it as a series for several sports. Noticeably absent is hockey. Gretzky/Messier and Lemieux/Jagr come to mind.
This is great information. One other that I was always taught is that numbers less than ten (or 10) should be written out and not written as numbers. For example, " The 3 puppies may have looked alike but all had unique personalities," should read, "The three puppies may have looked alike but all had unique personalities."
I've printed out a copy of this list and I will have it handy every time I have to proofread a document.

Have to admit, I had to grow up before I could truly appreciate Elvis. I never got the whole hero worship thing when I was a teenager growing up in the 80s. It was actually his Christmas CD that got me started down a different Elvis path. It was truly joyous. Then I began relistening (forgive my made-up word) to his other work. From the upbeat tunes, "Jailhouse Rock," and "Hound Dog," to ballads such as, "Love Me Tender," and "In the Ghetto," I found a true appreciation for his gift. I now have several Elvis songs on my iPod and love listening to them while out for my evening walks.
I think my favorite Elvis is the younger version. I like to remember him when he was at his best both physically and musically. The Vegas version makes me think too much of what his life became instead of what it truly should have been.
