Rick Myers believes that Jobster's goal from the start was to make a big splash with its VC money so it could quickly build a notable brand and, on that basis alone, sell the company (or, go public). That's why it never had any product or service or made much, if any, money.
If that's true, however, why did they spend so much money on good people rather and why didn't Don JGo sell before things went sour?
Animal: Carl, I have to ask you a question right off the bat. Am I getting drunk on power?
Carl Chapman: You're definitely drunk.
Animal: That's it? Anthony, Anthony, say something to this guy. You know, I'm so glad, Anthony, you're here today because I am tired. I'm going to have to have you take over and take Carl apart. So, go ahead, attack Carl.
Anthony: Attack him? I barely know him!
Animal: Okay, Carl, I have a question for you. What about online spousal abuse? Do you have an opinion?
Carl Chapman: Do I have an opinion on what?
Animal: OSA. Online Spousal Abuse!
Anthony: What are you talking about, online spousal abuse?
Animal: Anthony, do you want to say something about Online Spousal Abuse?
Anthony: I don't know. Where did that come from?
Carl Chapman: Animal, can you hear me?
Animal: Who is this? Is it Carl?
Carl Chapman: Yeah, it's Carl. You said you couldn't hear me so I called in on another line.
Animal: Okay, Carl, do you have an opinion about Online Spousal Abuse? I'm going to have to drop this topic. No one knows anything about it but me.
Anthony: Can you elaborate? Can you give us some background?
Carl Chapman: Penelope Trunk, Brazen Careerist blog...
Animal: No, that's where it started but I'm not talking about her.
Carl Chapman: I understand. Then Maureen picked up the gauntlet and wrote about it on your blog.
Animal: Yes. Should you talk about your husband or your wife on your blog?
Anthony: There used to be a blog...
Animal: Uh, uh, it's Carl's turn. Come on, we're really going... we're getting disorganized...
Carl Chapman: I, I, I...
Animal: Are you talking or are you barking?
Carl Chapman: Well, it's your fault. You're the host. You're the one who's supposed to keep it organized.
There are 3 kinds of contacts:
1. Potential (New). 2. Current. 3. Old.
There are 8 kinds of networkers.
1. The Tony Soprano (Only Present focus)
Focus is on Current Contacts. Good for a mobster because you can only trust your gang. Outsiders, both new and old contacts, carry risks.
2. The Ghost-from-the-Past (Only Past focus)
A Hanger-on who pesters Old Contacts. An old colleague or friend you want to shake.
3. The Classic Salesman (Only Future focus)
Focus is on New Contacts. Lively and flattering. Looking to use you. Believes it's for your own good. Will drop you when he doesn't need you anymore. But can return out of the blue as if nothing ever happened. A souless psychopath in its purest form (The Telemarketer).
Manolo says: Like many of the problems of the fashion, the problem of being not tall it is partly surmountable with attitude and proper dress...
Avoid any combination of the colors that cut the body in the half; the coat and the pants that are of the radically different color. Indeed, the wearing of the monochromatic pallette, in the color of the neutral or the dark, it gives the illusion of elongating the body. Of the course, the stripes they must always be vertical.
