In the Men's Room with Murph

What if I told you, many businesses use the same, old marketing methods from 1450 AD?!   Believe it or not, it’s true. And it might be what’s keeping YOU from growing your business…   See, back in the day, the printing press was the hot new thing. Businesses finally had a way to promote their enterprise through mass printing. You know the drill, pamphlets, newspapers, etc. In the 1730s, magazines took on popularity. 1839 brought with it the poster, and less than thirty years later, billboards were on the scene!   All through the era of modern technology, as radios, TVs, and telephones began to increase in popularity, businesses took advantage of these mass trends, and the result was BIG profits. From 1950-1972, television ad-spend skyrocketed from 5% to 15%, decreasing the length of programs. Then, the telemarketing phase began, which, despite the financial success, has exacerbated the marketplace ever since.  …

Imagine you’re the G.O.A.T. of your sport.   You’ve already won gold medals, and expected to win a few more. Pressure beyond reason mounts as you are supposed to be perfect in your performance. And then everything goes wrong. And it’s at The Olympics in front of a Billion viewers!  As opposed to pushing forward, possibly risking physical injury, taking the team down with you, instead you decide to pull yourself from competition. This is where The Promise as a topic of importance becomes essential for your own foundational belief system. This story will be talked about for years to come, but it is an important one to discuss right now. Simone Biles, one of the greatest athletes of all-time, found herself in last place after she missed a vault routine that was fairly second-nature to her, but this time didn’t come together. CNN Story HERE Everyone can relate to this – when…

COVID-19 was certainly not the only virus to sweep both the nation and the world in the past year. Virtual viruses descended on a few major industries, generating a level of panic that created shortages of gas and beef while spreading misinformation like wildfire. In a world where digital exponential change accelerates tremendously, cyber threats are no longer a frustrating obstacle that only individuals face. While the ease of large-scale connectivity is appealing, our vital systems in place are now more delicate than we realize. Through my Anticipatory Leader System, I teach competencies to train C-suite executives and business leaders how to think exponentially as a way to see disruption and plan ahead before it occurs, especially in the world of cybersecurity. Record Year For Ransomware Around the early nineties, our usage of the personal computer accelerated and, right alongside it, computer viruses and cyber threats evolved. During these early years, worms, Trojan horses, and…

Will the NCAA Division l transfer portal be cataclysmic? Or is that we are in a new era/new thinking/new who knows? Let’s define what is known about the idea of a transfer portal. When a student-athlete signs his/her letter of intent to attend a Division I school and then wants to change schools, he/she must register that intent on the “transfer portal” list. This is a site where not only can student-athletes inform other Division I schools of their intent but it also notifies school compliance officers and other athletic personnel of that student-athletes intention. At this writing, it does not apply to Division II schools, but it looks like that is on the horizon. Further, the NCAA, particularly Division I have been under “fire” about its position for denial of NIL (Name, Image and/or Likeness) of student-athletes receiving financial remunerations. The Supreme Court has now stepped in to allow student-athletes (yes,…

When Bitcoin debuted in 2009, I published an article making a few predictions using my Hard Trend Methodology that have proven to be highly accurate. While I stated that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology represented a Hard Trend that would grow exponentially, it is time to discuss the next Hard Trend: digital currency. You likely have heard of cryptocurrency, but how is digital currency different? Believe it or not, there is a vital difference. Understanding what digital currency is, how it can be used and potentially misused, and how it is drastically different from the likes of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is paramount in shaping the future of global and local financial systems. Banking Apps, Cryptocurrency, and Digital Currency Many individuals view the use of their digital banking app or credit card as a “cashless, digital way to pay.” That is not digital currency. The digital nature of your savings or checking account is tied to…

We are now sure that includes Sha’Carri Richardson, the 5’1” Texan sprinter who won the 100-meter United States Olympic Trials in Oregon earlier this month. Later she was disqualified. Did she “jump-the-gun”? Did she interfere with her competitor in the next lane? Nope! This 21-year-old LSU freshman ran that 100-meters in 10.86 and is one of the 10-fastest women in the world. She says she is “only human.” Ha! it must be added that with that speed, she is more super-human. She said her role model was Florence Griffith Joyner, a former UCLA Bruin who died from suffocation in her sleep due to an epileptic seizure some 3 years ago. Flo-Jo is the current 100-meter world record holder at 10.49- just about one-half second faster than Richardson’s mark in Oregon. Sha’Carri’s disqualification was the result of her use of marijuana prior to that race at the Olympic trials. The US Olympic Track…
