About idiotic mistake, surprising successes and some real business and life lessons well learned there were some really interesting takeaways that I wish I'd known more about when we was young and that's one of the reasons why I wanted to invite bruce onto the show. I liked his thinking about getting fired but I think if you look at your life, if you're expecting your career to proceed along some kind of a predictable path, then you are setting yourself up for a lot of unhappiness we live in a time of of change. All Times are people will say this at any point in human history probably little time of change, but the change moves faster now in. In the economy because of the influence of technology certainly you know as refugee of of the publishing business I certainly saw that firsthand and yet there are also ways to adapt. So I think for me the lesson there is always planning for that next job and learning those skills and developing those those connections and contacts and expertise that might carry you through to a job that you can't even imagine yet. So be hungry, be flexible and be a little bit humble. You keep saying this word. Humble. Doesn't really radiate humbleness to me I think. Point. You're right. He doesn't.

"I gotta read what they're saying That's really useful. Having a consistent cadence for posting to is also super important. You know even in this era of Algorithms mixing up our time lines and not showing the most recent content. It's still really important to have a regular posting schedule so that you stay top of mind for your social content. Now let's see. What else do we got and then finding your audience. I think that's another really big one too is that there's so many options out there for social platforms and being able to know where your audience is and where you're getting. The most engagement is is super important. Data like for example. I have a decent size audience on instagram. I use twitter fairly frequently. I've been trying to work on my whatever thought leadership on Lincoln. Whatever you WANNA call it these days but I know that. My audience is primarily on twitter. So that's where I'm going to focus you know. Eighty five percent of my time and energy is building up that audience. Because that's where I'm going to get the most impact for for the most Roi for the kinds of content. That I'm posting. That's great I Honestly I our producer. Put up a question here. That is making me laugh. Because it says how do you balance them stopping Content versus branding and tone and it makes me laugh because one of the things. I really get jealous about With small businesses is that they can really make their post anything they want. It can be cool. You can grab anything you want to do. And you're still establishing you know depending on how small you are you might still be establishing what your brand even is and sometimes branding can really throw a monkey wrench into some cool posts. But I think that is a very good question. So how do you balance making sure your brand is a car? I always think that should come. First your branch accommodate what is happening in the market like I would love to get into some ar Stories and different things that are coming up this year. But how do you try to balance out as you're building you know as you're the PM over there and driving products as well as your own brand? Yeah that's that's a good question. I don't feel like they're mutually exclusive. I think can you. Can you read the say the original question one more time? I just want to make sure I I. I hid it. How do you balance them? Stopping content versus Brandon town. Yeah I don't think those are mutually exclusive. I think you can can definitely do both of those things really well at the same time One of the things that I see a lot of brands being really successful with is user generated content So if you look at a company like this is definitely not a small business. But I think it's a great example like urban decay The cosmetics company one of my favorite brands and they do just a phenomenal job on their social channels especially instagram by incorporating user generated content. That still is on brand with what they're posting when they're not using user generated content so they've got. This really cohesive like color story that they use for all of their posts. It's usually like a pinky purple on at all. The user generated content that. They're pulling into their stream still aligns with that color story. And so when you look at their overall posts you're seeing like really cool stuff from from these influencers or from just regular people who are using their products but they all still maintain that branding that they have so hard to to convey when you said the pink and purple I was already like envisioning their packaging. So yeah without even before you had said that I was already right to their packaging. I could see purple on the top especially from the early two thousands. I could see that purple with silver and you just go right to the brand. I ain't sample. Yeah it's totally. It's still really reasonable to to maintain that consistency While still posting interesting thumb stopping content. Right how do you look at some of the trends and then bring that back to make sure that your product is offering that because when I saw? It really was fresh. It's relevant to today's social and the PLO section. I know I'm starting to be a fan girl myself over here but I mean it is very impressive to be able to bring those trends directly into the product. You're creating. Yeah that's that's a great question because this is we have a really active user base and they love submitting ideas and content ideas. And you know we can't obviously do all of it all of the time But it's made to be really aware of the trends assess on Instagram For things that I had no idea existed before I started this job like grid takeovers for example huge trends I think the INSTAGRAM carousel is a new one. I I have to look that up. I didn't even know what that meant. And then but when I saw the examples I knew exactly what they were talking about. Which is when you have a multi panel image that you slide and it connects the connect. Those are yeah and then even when instagram stories launched we for a long time didn't have a So spark also gives you like aspect ratios for different platforms have to know what all the correct size is. Helpful did not have like an instagram stories. size for a while Because we wanted to be able to support video I and so we were getting that. Ask all the time like when you're going to have a stories template when you're going to build that in and we wanted to do it right and so it took us a little bit longer to implement that but then when we were able to to actually have like video content in spark post And really make it the way we wanted to make it for instagram's stories. Then we were able to release it and that was great But it's it's tough because there's a lot we can do but like I said we're still kind of a small team so being able to really pick and choose and prioritize which features are going to have the most bang for the buck and really make the most kinds of people excited and happy to use the product. That's kind of what we have to focus on. Yeah and that's tough because you don't have control of the channel just control of the product so you don't know what will change or what they test and doesn't work out So that's really interesting. Well we're going to throw really quick to worst business ideas in history and then we're gonNA come right back here because we know your time is valuable and we really appreciate you being on here.

We're both hiding from the world right now. Yes we are in our Bubbles of our homes and Trying to stay safe so we're going to talk about The premier smokeless cigarette This was a product developed by Rj Reynolds and actually and surreptitiously through some other Cigarette companies as well to try and develop a a reusable smokeless cigarette to try and combat combat. What was being seen in the nineteen seventies as people not wanting to bother other people with with second hand. Smoke and to avoid Giving secondhand smoke to other people but was really another way to get people to smoke more often because if you can eliminate the need for people to sit in a smoking section. That's just one more place. They can consume tobacco. Smoking section not bother other people just Yeah make it make it easier to do right right so so not not really like health related at this point. Well here's the thing. They made the case that by that. A lot of the carcinogens in existing cigarettes were actually caused by the chemicals coming into contact with each other and then moving through the filter. So oddly enough. The filter on cigarettes was one of the carcinogenic problems with traditional cigarettes. Okay their own research Led them to this conclusion. And so what they did is they spent over. Eight hundred million dollars in the nineteen seventies which means it was probably like to like the equivalent of like two billion dollars now to develop these These cigarettes that were basically like basically a charcoal briquet condensed down injected with tobacco and then pressed into an aluminum cylinder that the person within like the end of and and like just suck through this aluminum cylinder instead of lighting the end of physical cigarette. What what everybody missed besides I guess my computer camera are a series of confused. Looks on my face but okay. That sounds. That's one way to do it. Yeah so they They test marketed. This in Saint Louis and in Tucson Arizona and Phoenix. Oh okay well. It's just a little too much before my time. I think if it was in the seventies very much gone here in Phoenix but yeah so They They test marketed. It there they sent like You know I- millions of these cigarettes to local stores and stuff and the response immediately from store owners was that the sales were small to non existent people did not want this program from Jump Street. Okay so did now. I'm curious about like how they came to the conclusion that they thought people would want it. If from the very beginning it didn't even like our Alestra one was kind of like. Oh at the beginning. It was good and then it was bad but nobody. Nobody cared from the beginning. No apparently what had happened is their market. Research was based entirely around focus groups with smokers and asking them. Hey what are some of the problems you face as a smoker? They really tried to galvanize smokers as being like you're.

We specialize in brand strategy marketing and designed for small to medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs. Are you a classically trained designer. I am not. I am a a classically trained painter.

As I said was teaching university for a little bit and then I came back from teaching in south France and I started my own t shirt company with the monitor types that I had been producing when I was teaching. And this was before the Internet so that dates me and and I walked the island of Manhattan with my low T. shirt sample case selling my stuff and street fairs Manhattan and stuff like that. Eventually over time realized that I didn't really like sales that much and I love doing the design work so I I went to work for one of my competitors about a five million dollar t shirt company that it was in Dumbo Brooklyn back when Gumbo did not have a West Elm. I worked there for about four or five years and it went from designer senior designer to creative director are- quickly and I realized very quickly that being creative director was a lot like teaching. Except you got paid more money and you weren't out of work every nine months so so it's nothing like teaching. Just kidding right this is very good. I've got I've got a couple of questions for you. You're in New York. How are you sustaining yourself? Assault selling t shirts. This sounds like it. Like how do you make ends meet. Yeah I was actually working at a frame shop in the West village same time and then I started doing well enough that I stopped working in the frame shop. But that's also right about the time that the the first MAC started to make its appearance in terms of really being a workable. All design machine. That's when I went to work for this other t shirt company. I see Woo man. You're like early kind of digital artist. If you're talking about the first I MAC and I'm gonNA throw a daycare and you don't have to confirm nor deny the date is Israel. Are we talking like eighty five ish like late eighty S. We're talking very very early. Nineties like okay like ninety nine and is this. The Beige all in one Macintosh. We're talking about yeah. Well Yeah Chrome. mm-hmm monochrome monitor the five K.. Yeah yeah the first one. I remember those days so naive myself to learn. Actually I think the first one the first Mac I had I rented and I rented it from a shop in Manhattan it was a Quadra seven hundred or maybe the one before that I think okay bought was a Quadra four seven hundred but it had like you know two hundred one hundred and seventy five megabyte hard drive in you know how powerful it was. I don't understand people do not understand this. One hundred seventy five megabyte hard drive was a big deal back then. Yeah Yeah I mean the fact that you had. Yeah I don't really get into because we're going to hold out. No I hear here's one little blow your mind. got a black and white laser printer and it cost me thirty eight hundred dollars and just bought one for my office and the toner cartridge was more expensive printer. It costs like I don't know sixty nine on dollars or something like that. I always like that. My Gosh so much change okay. So you're working on a frame shop. Now you're selling t shirts and and when you when you say you're selling tee-shirt is it the way I imagine you come out the design you pay for the printing and then you're sending selling your original artwork on a T.. Shirt is that how that works the up. That's how it worked time went and then printed Ed and I You know ship them. I took them in cases with my old beater car to wherever they were being sold in gift shops and stuff often apparel stores in Manhattan But then when I went to work with other company that we were shipping rain for the United States and stuff like that and that company that five million dollar company they also design t shirts. Yeah we did all original designs. I say we are a huge business in the Caribbean so a lot of resort teas and stuff like that. We also have a lot of things called name drops where you have a design but then you put like Siesta key in the bottom of it or you know Tampa Bay or you regionalize. The design For souvenirs shops and whatnot. Then I I went to work for another licensed. T shirt company That did a lot of character. Art You Know Disney and Warner brothers and stuff like that For about a year and I was managing about ten people at that point and then got picked up by old navy right when they were starting. and Oh wow. An old navy and Was One of the first handful of designers there again very he kind of moved from senior designer to create director and eventually over a period of eleven years moved up to Vice President of graphics Textile Design Trend Trend Packaging and color and so and I had five divisions I was you know managing sixty five people. So that's for how I really kind of gum stripes. I came up in the fashion industry retail fashion industry. And during that time I also got you know one of the things I loved about the jobs. I got your travel all all over the world quarterly so I would fly to Tokyo and Berlin and London and Milan and Antwerp and shop for work so I would just bought Trans Right. Yeah Twelve Trans. So that's where my that's where my trend I came from okay so when you're the VP OF GRAPHICS WCHS trends and all the other things that you put in there for old navy. Yeah what years is now. It was ninety five and I left there in two thousand six right. That's your ten year span. There eleven spent two thousand six. And how quickly were you able to ascend from being new in the door to being VP. I I was a VP within the first five years. Wow and what do you attribute that to like. Why did they pick you of all the people because you wanted to managing in sixty ish people right? Why did it take you to be the guy? And why not the person standing next to you. What what characteristics did you have all? I think one of the things that's always worked to my advantage manages. I'm very left and right brain I have. I have a head for numbers and strategy and the other piece of his people management. You know. That's where the teaching teaching really came in Handy. Because I had developed a decent emotional intelligence so managing people was came easy to me and I also oh you know built great partnerships within the organization so essentially my groups were acting as an internal agency to all the other product divisions so You know I think it was my I built an acumen for finance and budgeting and You know hiring the right people managing and people being a good negotiator with my business partners. That sort of thing. So you're basically doing everything that I wished. I had done at whatever place Jason My career because I expired one day to create a t shirt company Godsell. But I didn't have your your gumption. I didn't have probably even your talent to go out there and sale because I was too stuck in my own brain like this is weird. I don't know I can't sell. What if they see no and so i? I picked a different career path. But you did this and you seem to. I have been able to navigate one situation for another and trade up constantly. Yeah it worked pretty well I mean in the old navy t shirt business. This is just a little fun fact. the old navy t shirt business. Graphic tee shirt business was a seven hundred million dollar a year business and we produce the old navy flag teams the biggest selling t shirt in history one year. We sold one point seven million of them or something like that And we figured it out. It was like three percent of the United States population. Bought one that it was so many t shirts that we had to actually buy cotton futures so before the cotton was even grown. We had to like buy futures on causes to hear of cotton while sprint

"And one of the features in there is you know, what next after a problem, you know, that that unbelievable curse that nobody thought can be broken. How are people gonna look at things now approach things I feel that they're gonna just completely dismiss all historical thought, and and all you know, postscript, and I think that's a wrong approach. And that's how I take the tax in the article that I wrote, you know, I think history still matters a lot whether this elements still exist if they never has happened. I think people just false sense of security. That anything on a horse's resume doesn't matter to a certain point that it's just another horse race. And to me, I think that's always been the wrong approach. Just because this was able to do it doesn't mean the next two hundred in this cropper going to be able to pull it off. Well, that's a fair point. And you have like think back to think back to. Funny cide winning and there hadn't been a gelding win since plied van Dusen and. Well, by that bird. Okay. Mine that bird. Mike good. Well, never mind that bird blue by everybody. In caught. Everybody comes Erkin, call was the most the price person probably in the building. He didn't pick him up until he was five in front, and I'm just laughing. And I'm just chuckling and Rick Reilly Sports Illustrated looked at me, and he's like what are you laughing at? It's like, you don't you don't understand what you just saw there. That was the most unbelievable finish in Kentucky Derby to win by that margin to be that obscure of a horse, you know, with the story behind it. And you know, Rick rather kind of wrinkled his nose at it. I think he didn't really want to be there and cover horse racing as it was. And you know, he was expecting some blue blood pomp and circumstance story to right? And I think you ended up with a better one, honestly, and one of the all time tales in in horse racing history that mine that bird was unbelievable. I actually had that which I was part of the ficials there'd be no team back at the time. And I've covered him all week. And I was gonna chip. These barn. I was the only guy on the chip barn during them every day. And and the Sunday the day after I go back to chip goes. Did you bet even like hell, no? No way to come up with. And even if you had a little bit of a tie to it. But my Knepper. Yeah. And well, so we talked about, you know, we do all this homework. Right. And I love it. I love the pursuit one hundred eighteen pages in the preseason annual magazine. Right. Probably. But houses words a week for twenty weeks on on the triple crown trail. And then you get to their be day, and the cursive Apollo is gone mine that bird win. But you know, what's we still love the pursuit? And I think that's what it's all about the same thing in college football. That's my other love in life. And you know, you go through this entire season and yet and yet bend and twist on every game and every kick and every flag and every bad call and it comes down to the still just him and Clemson again, fourth fine.
