Saying Good-Bye To Groupon's CEO Andrew Mason!

Saying  Good-Bye  To  Groupon's  CEO Andrew Mason! | Daily Deal Industry Association. Deal and Coupon News, Studies, Reports & Reviews, | Scoop.it

Saying Good-Bye to Groupon's CEO Andrew Mason!

DarrellEllens's insight:

I just wanted to say thank you and say good-bye!


Andrew Mason changed the life of so many people from the consumer, known as the "subscriber" to the business owner, know as the "merchant" to all the sales reps, and to all Daily Deal companies from around the world that made up the industry.


Andrew Mason started an industry, the "DAILY DEAL INDUSTRY" and that I would like to thank him for. In a few short years, it has become a billion dollar industry.


I too, was caught up in the Daily Deal industry. As the manager of the Linkedin Group "Daily Deal Industry" I posted more articles about Groupon and the industry he created than anyone else in the world. I posted (curated) everyone elses stories as well to my Linkedin group. Who ever thought you could devote1,000's of hours, sharing news about the daily deal industry. I always took a break from 3:00pm - 4:00pm to watch a new show called BloombergWest, which by the way is their 2nd birthday today.


Happy birthday to all of their 65 reporters and their behind the scenes staff.


For the first year or two everyone got into the business. Everyday I shared articles about this corporation and that corporation getting into the daily Deal Industry. I must of read and posted10,000 articles. 


On behalf of the Linkedin Group "Daily Deal Industry" I wish you the best of luck in your next start-up! You might not know yet what you will being doing, but I do. You will be doing something that has the entrepreneurial spirit attached to it, which sometimes includes fighting it.


Speaking from experience, it easier to accept being an entrepreneur, than it is to fight it.


Good Luck Andrew, you will always be remembered as the Founder!

Just Story It - Scoops

Just Story It - Scoops | Daily Deal Industry Association. Deal and Coupon News, Studies, Reports & Reviews, | Scoop.it

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.


I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!


I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.

 

How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the articles with that keyword will appear.

 

I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!

 

And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, & take the free Story IQ assessment so you can see how well developed your storytelling skills and knowledge is: http://www.juststoryit.com/storyiq

Hello Karen. "Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business." Please scoop a new link to these articles. The link you put in the comments only points at your scoop page. Or was the message that your scoop page IS the collection of the great articles? A bit unclear. (PS: I suggested a scoop for you today)
Karen Dietz's comment, September 11, 2013 5:52 PM
Hi Thorsten -- the link needs fixing and I'm trying to do get that done. Thanks for your patience. The link should actually be to the entire curation. This post is a permanent post that acts as a kind of editorial page. The idea is when people want to direct others to the entire collection, they can scoop/re-scoop this page which should lead people to the site. Thanks for the comment and I'll work on clearing up any confusion! And many thanks for the suggestion, which I thought was fabulous.
