Ok I'm gonna say it,Thorton Mellon is who I modeled my business philosophys after (#ThereItsOut). I'm not a real stickler for structure ( as Mellon was not), I believed in a day to day today street mentality (as did Mellon), I feel that sometimes the educated over think things to sound smart and overcharge you for them sounding smart. ( as did Mellon) and I like Bubbles ( as did Mellon). I don't consider myself a writer or a blogger (as testament to my work here #Lsmh). I'm not real big on punctuation or spelling (maybe I should be, hmmmm.). I just let my fingers go where the keyboard feels #FRFR.
What I am good at although (as I've been told) is backwardly engineering products and services and making those products and services more market worthy( thank you Thorton for giving me that insight). Entrepreneurs tend to feel like they're pretty smart guys and have a tendency to try and make being the bright equate to profitable (no profitable is profitable). You see to be profitable with customers you have to quit trying to impress them with your "ObieWaness" and listen (#IRepeat), listen for the opportunity to provide your client with what's really they're solution.
The smartest thing anyone can do is listen. When you do that then its easier to 1 hear the problem, 2. recognize the opportunity, and 3. Create a strategy to answer the challenges, but this all starts with listening.
So thank you Thorton Mellon and pompous professor for showing me that sometimes, the smartest thing you can do is........LISTEN
