I regularly get emails from PR people and marketing people promoting their blogsites or businesses. They offer to write a blog for me or offer to let me use one they claim is custom made for me.
I haven’t sent any of these along to you. First, I’m too arrogant to think you would come to this site if you wanted to read someone else’s ideas. Second, they are seldom consistent with what I’m writing about. Lastly, I have never read one that wasn’t tripe; well below your intelligence level.
Which leads me to think about what I do write.
I have a clear idea of how the world works. Most people have a very diffuse and amorphous idea of how the world around them works. Even worse, they have a borrowed a ‘popular’ view that is not connected to my experience. My experience is fairly vast and can be seen here in a rudimentary vitae.
My views on how business works is purely empirical. I’ve worked with over 2,000 businesses including a 1,000 small ones and start-ups. Also some giants like Itochu the largest trading company and SAS a large airline. I have some strong views as a result.
Most importantly, I never lose sight of the position summarized in the blog title. Commerce is the greatest human invention for good. It is the source of nearly everything positive humans have accomplished. I hope that sense pervades what I write and do. I hope.
