daily bizcard 047: nancy lublin

Today’s “Daily Bizcard”, “That Kinda Girl” goes to Nancy Lublin, author of “Zilch: The Power Of Zero In Business”.

Nancy’s message is simple: you don’t need a lot of money to do well in business, you jut need a lot of smarts, creativity and sass.

Nancy’s background is in working for nonprofits. They never have any money, but they can get amazing results anyhow, just by having, like I said, a lot of smarts, creativity and sass. Nancy’s career has been the embodiment of that.

It’s something I can relate to. I’ve always been a shoestring/bootstrap kinda guy, and I have no intention of ever changing. Neither does Nancy, from what I can tell.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
