Eric Decker has it pretty rough.
He's gorgeous. He has a gorgeous wife. They just had a baby. They have their own reality show on E! Decker is a professional football player who spent three years with the Denver Broncos and has been traded to the New York Jets.
What a train wreck.
As Decker struggles to adjust to a new life in a new city with a new baby ... rolling in the money ... Ruffles has hired the wide receiver to be its frontman for a funny promotion called "Rough Life."
This week I got lucky. I scored a business trip to a Lockheed Martin facility where they make all kinds of warfare simulators—everything from tank mock-ups to pretend F-35 jet fighters. I got to play, but even playing was stressful.
I can't imagine how stressful it must be in real life, being a soldier on patrol in hostile territory for hours at a time.
You think selling Girl Scout cookies is easy? Well, of course it's easy. They're delicious.
But selling more than 21,000 boxes? That's an art. The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, apparently.
In a hilarious parody video created by Mashable, the very real 12-year-old Katie Francis of Oklahoma City reveals her strategy for selling the most cookies in Girl Scout history.
The video starts sweetly enough, as the sixth-grader announces that she recently broke the old record "by selling 21,477 boxes of Girl Scout cookies." Her secret?
Jordan Belfort is back.
Now that "The Wolf of Wall Street" is a certified hit, the man whose life the film is based on is back selling something. This time, however, it's all legal.
Belfort is selling a program on how to be a successful salesperson using "ethical persuasion." "Success in the absence of ethics ... is failure, it's not success at all," Belfort said in a free webinar Wednesday.
"This was an experiment, right?" said Travis Laurendine, standing in a men's room. "The experiment was, 'What if you could make a company that's so funny that it markets itself?'"
The experiment may be succeeding.
Laurendine co-founded Airpnp, based on the very successful Airbnb, a site which allows people to rent out their homes. In the case of Airpnp, however, people are renting out their bathrooms, hence the 'P.'
"People in the United States take 3 trillion pees a year—3 trillion," he said. "Do the math. Trust me, I have."
Peer-to-peer takes on a whole new meaning.
Now you can have your cake and brush your teeth with it, too.
Crest has released three new flavors targeting "experiential consumers" or "daredevils," including Mint Chocolate Trek, Vanilla Mint Spark and Lime Spearmint Zest, all marketed under the new "Be" line—as in, "Be adventurous ... inspired ... dynamic."
Only in America could someone like Don King succeed. Where else could a man drop out of school, go to prison for killing a man, find God, meet Muhammad Ali and end up being the greatest promoter since P.T. Barnum?
This week, King is in Cleveland to promoting a boxing event airing on Showtime. The "Cleveland Show for People Care," at the Cleveland State University Wolstein Center marks a homecoming for a man whose very first promoted event happened here in 1972 with Muhammad Ali.
"Boxing is life," King told CNBC. The main event Friday features relatively unknown lightweights Angelo Santana and Hank Lundy. Young prospects Amir Imam and Jared Robinson will fight at junior welterweight. But King is intent on bringing back the glory days of heavyweight boxing to the U.S.
Sitting around waiting for your smartphone to ring with news that your start-up will get the funding needed to finally start up? Kill some time playing the latest enterprenerd time-suck on Twitter, the #VCCoverBands hashtag.
Such fun mashups are a favorite pastime for tweeters. For example, #IfThatMovieWasJewish led to creative suggestions like "The Devil Wears Schmatta" and "The Wizard of Oy."
But melding the names of famous musicians or bands with venture capital firms? That takes real nerds.
