Our guest today is international businessman Marc Daniels who joins us live in studio. Marc is from Springfield, IL and has been the driving force behind an international program called Weed Out Hate. Marc travels the world promoting his idea of replacing the "weeds of hate" with the "flower of peace". When the bus bombing took place yesterday in Israel we connected with Marc and he has connected us with international journalist Ulrich Sahm (photo below) who will be joining us live from his office in Jerusalem.
While we don't do politics we do focus on consumers and action and reaction. We think there are some powerful business lessons here. Can gardening...bring world peace? Join us for an international discussion on the business of peace...and hate. And, yes, we'll take your calls.
Are You Working At Producing Quality?
We follow Seth Godin (and you should too). His short, to the point blogs are huge thought starters. In this piece he suggests we should help migrate "angry birds" away from our computer and focus...focus...focus on creating quality. Not garbage. WHOOT! A comment on this and something I learned last night. Some folks can't take humor...yikes!
The Worst Ad of the Week
No, we didn't forget... Today we'll show you a dramatic...high cost ad from a national company that we think...fails to make a point. But, then again, we might be missing it.
Thanks for coming by! Hope you are having a great Thursday!
