The three rules of show business

From one of my favourite Louie episodes:

  1. Look em in the eye and speak from the heart.

  2. You gotta go away to come back. 

  3. If someone asks you to keep a secret, that secret is a lie.

With #2 in mind, in case you haven't noticed, I've been away for quite some time working on BookedIN full time. Mostly on growth, inside sales, onboarding emails, and prioritizing ye-olde dev roadmap.

Forgiveness please during my absence :P

Video: WORDS by Everynone

A single word can mean so many different things.

My friend Stephen and I are working on a video project together, and he sent me this great video. 

I really liked how the producers played around with words, and their multiple meanings. It gets me thinking about just how powerful words are, and how careful you need to be with them. So much potential for misinterpretation. Yet also, potential to be creative, clever or artistic.

The video is especially powerful with the lack of narration. Quick cuts. Drama. All that good stuff.

Everynone are apparently fantastic, I really need to check out more of their stuff. The founders have gone on to do work for Apple and Volkswagen. Stephen is even planning on hiring them!
