    What’s the FAM Into?

    Quinn’s Listening To…

    I’m listening to a piece of audio by Gary Vee. This totally applies to B2B and our industry. “One of the most important things your business can do for the end consumer is to create as little friction as possible for them to consume your content or buy your products.”

    Kinsley’s Reading…

    In Phil Jackson’s book 11 Rings he talks about growing up around the Lakota Sioux. Jackson’s stories introduced me to the traditions of this noble indigenous tribe.

    I’m reading The Lakota Way: Stories and Lessons for Living by Joseph M. Marshall III. Packed with stories and fables, it’s about how the spiritual beliefs of the Lakota people can help us all lead more meaningful, ethical lives.

    BT’s Thinking About…

    Last week, I finished all the current episodes of Was I in a Cult. Why was it so addicting for me to listen to, along with millions of others?

    What they do wonderfully is blend comedy into the interviews, which are of course very dark and intense. It’s a reminder that we need levity and by blending humor into our daily lives it can make the tough times a little less difficult, and pills that are hard to swallow go down a bit smoother!


    “Culture Infusion” Author Kerry Wekelo

    In Episode 31 of Just Stories with BT, Brett sits down with an award-winning author, chief operating officer at Actualize Consulting, founder of Zendoway, and creator of Zendoway Cubes.

    Wekelo’s best selling book “Culture Infusion,” highlights nine principles to creating and maintaining a thriving organizational culture.

    Foot Traffic Drivers

    Need help getting more people to your store?

    Here’s an idea…

    Host a New Year’s Eve party!

    🕺💃 Clear a spot for a dance floor, hire a DJ, and let the good times roll. At midnight, pop champagne and giveaway thousands of dollars in prizes. Everyone who attends gets a swag bag with gifts and coupons that’ll bring them back to the store.

    On the hunt for more foot traffic-driving ideas?

    Pick up a copy of Kinsley and Quinn’s #1 Amazon bestselling book, “Come Back to Bed: Attract More Foot Traffic and Make People Fall in Love with Your Store.”
