How History is Made - Quietly

Yesterday, I was able to be a part of making history. No, it was not the cure for cancer, or discovering warp drive, or teleportation (those WILL come later). The “history” was the placement of the world’s first device that can restore a man’s hair naturally, without drugs, surgery, or negative side effects.

Why is this important and how does it make history?

Due to the fact this is first machine that can combat the reasons why men go bald with an all natural, non-invasive, scientific approach makes it unique. It combines three technologies to first destroy DHT (a testosterone that deteriorates the hair follicle and their blood vessels and causes hair loss), second to rejuvenate the hair follicle, and lastly increase blood flow to the hair follicle. Essentially, it makes your scalp “think” it is 25 years old (or younger), or back when you used to grow hair naturally. But the technology is NOT the important thing here.

Nor is the most important thing that now men (and some women) can now regain the confidence that comes with a full head of hair in this every competitive environment for jobs, security, mates, and recognition. While this is SUPER important for the company’s ultimate success as a marketing message, it is not the MOST important feature in making history.

No, what is significant here is that a handful of entrepreneurs with very little fanfare, little money, but a lot of grit and determination brought to light a new technology, in a new sales channel for a different way to combat a problem that until today was handled with drugs or surgery. Their differentiation is that they offer an all natural, use proven science, and have no ill side effects. This company will be wildly successful due to the fact that there is such a pressing need for this “fix.” The amazing thing about it is that so few people were there to witness its birth!

I wonder how many other companies are being born yesterday, today or tomorrow unnoticed that will experience the same phenomenal success that will become so obvious 3 to 5 years from now?

If anyone is interested in seeing this “revolutionary” product, it is at Milk+Honey Salon on 3rd Street in downtown Austin. Ask for Elizabeth at 512.236.1115.

Myers-Briggs and Social Media

If you have been working for any amount of time, you have most likely have taken the Myer-Briggs personality indicators (introvert v. extrovert; sensing v. intuition; thinking v feeling; and perceiving v. judging).  Here is an infographic created my mbti that has been broken into five sections.  It is pretty informative and goes on to show what types of indicators prefer which types of social media.

Lupercalia and St. Valentine's Day

OK, I just could not resist this: Romance, sex, orgies, wolves, and martyrdom all under one legend. Oh my, what a day we have!!! We might celebrate romance and sweethearts on this day, but boy, the Romans really knew how to party. While history is fun, it is also interesting to know how some things never change (like falling in love and celebrating it!). Happy St. Valentine’s and Lupercalia. May you celebrate it at your heart’s content with someone who has stolen or whom you have given your heart away!  Lupercalia is uniquely Roman. It harkens back to the days when Rome was nothing more than a few shepherds living on a hill known as Palantine and was surrounded by wilderness teeming with wolves. The name comes from lupus, or the latin form of wolf, that celebrates the founding of Rome by Romulus and Remus (as they were suckled by a she-wolf). 
Another thought is that Lupercus, protector of flocks against wolves, is a likely candidate for the name. In any case, there is no question abou…

Men v. Boys

I have been reading a lot of articles of late about relationships and seeing some that put men into groups without understanding that men are NOT all alike.  By lumping all men together, the concept of being a gentleman does not come into play. Women, and people in general, have to realize that there are men of character, culture and grace, and then there are boys.  Boys are men who have chosen not to grow up and become wise in the ways of civility, charm, and substance. This post highlights the differences between men and boys.  Ladies, which are you dating? Men, whom are you?
