More WeWork lols

Further to my post a few days back, here’s Scott Galloway’s epic WeWork takedown. The last round $47 billion “valuation” is an illusion. SoftBank invested at this valuation with a “pref,” meaning their money is the first money out, limiting the downside. The suckers, idiots, CNBC viewers, great Americans, and people trying to feel young again who buy on the...

Finding your brand voice

At GROW with HubSpot earlier this week, one of the sessions was by Erik Newcomb from Shopify, talking about strategies for future proofing your brand. Part of his session focussed on the benefit of having a distinct brand voice. An example he highlighted was Naadam – an online fashion brand. Here’s their True Story video: Quirky, funny, compelling.

I’ll just blanket predict they will fail. After a...

Imagine my disbelief and surprise, when I found out just last night that the song is not actually called Precious Way and is in fact Pressure Sway.
