Small and Quaint

with one comment

standrewsHere I am living in a what I would call, small coastal city, and trying to grow a national brand for independent music. While certain things would be easier in a much larger city, I enjoy the corporate absence. Small business has always been my goal sized company to work and build. I’m not looking to answer to a board or an excutive council. All those things look good on paper….scratch that.  They look exactly the way they are; complex, boring, and wasteful. The guys I have the most faith in to create something great are the ones focused on the exact opposite. Corporate tells you to systemize and build distribution channels, while the next group of successful entrepueners tell you to personalize and get intimate with things. That doesn’t mean you act on every suggestion and tailor make everything. It means that your focus is becoming more knowledgable and producing a more knowledgable product. I’m not sure that this type of system will ever produce another Bill Gates, but I’m sure it will eliminate a lot of system errors and blue screens in the long run.

Securing My Credit

without comments

I have an idea…like always

The Revolving Credit Card Number
– Purpose 1: to keep companies from deciding they want to use my card 3 months later, 6 months, or whenever they feel like it
– Purpose 2: let me purchase things from crazy no name companies without wondering…are they going to sell me card # to people in Laos
– Purpose 3: better purchasing accountability

I don’t really care if the # is 100 digits long, I just want it to change every week at least. From a business stand point I can issue the “code” just like nuclear weapons at the end of the day or week it is no more
