Or at least, don’t make me feel dumb.

Here is the thing.

This guy is clearly a smart dude with lots of nice bona fides on his resume.

And I’m looking for some good outside ideas/perspectives on marketplace founders.

It is true that I woke up late.

And i’m not drinking coffee anymore either.  (because it interferes with my intemittent fasting lifestyle, which I just started in March, to precede my drinking too much red wine lifestyle, with is on target to begin in May)

So I’m groggy in the morning.

I doth not protest.

And yet –

What the fuck does this marketplace presentation mean?

I’ll pay someone to translate this for me.

Or just give me the big idea.

Because i feel like i’ve been assaulted by long words and hastily made cheesy charts.

And if there is one thing worse than a cheesy chart?

It’s a hastily made one where the squiggly lines bring back flashbacks of a bad ayausaska experience.

(the one where the Shaman looked like your Uncle Art)

RIP Uncle Art.  I’m sorry for head butting your dopleganger in Peru.

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I'm a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he's super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says " it's always NOW" when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You're making me nervous.
