Rolling With The Changes

Firstly there’s a lot of change and we’re rolling with the changes. Especially when there is a family emergency. Learn more in Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977.

Abrupt Change Happens In Everyone’s Life

Secondly abrupt and surprising developments visit everyone sooner or later.

Flexibility Is Called For

Most importantly you have to be flexible enough to deal with abrupt change, even when you’re nomad.

Not Easy

Certainly I was having a great time. From Minnesota to the Gulf Coast, across the desert to Southwestern Arizona.

Plans Shift and Things Change

Even more, I had plans to head further west to an big off road race in Johnson County, California.

Things Happen

But things happen, as they say.

Whatever It Takes

Above all when your family is in crisis you have to do whatever you can.

Nomad Travel Rewind

In my case that required me to rewind all my travels in just a few days.

Interstate Driving

Subsequently I drove East on the I-10 to I-17 North, to 40 East all the way from Arizona to Virginia, and then I-85 North to the Richmond area.

All A Blur

As a result there were a lot of truck stop stays which I don’t remember. In addition a number of sights that were a blur, like the Cadillac Ranch.

Marathon Trek

In fact I didn’t even think to record anything for this podcast in Mobile Podcast while making that marathon trek.

Massive Change

Finally the point here is that we’re going through massive change. Some will applaud the changes. Others will not.

Flexible Enough To Roll With The Changes

Likewise as I have pointed out in many recent podcasts, during periods of intense change and challenge, one has to be able to roll with the changes.

To sum up, flexibility is required.

Attached To Outcomes?

For example right now I am dealing with a number of strong and independent personalities, myself included. Being rigid and attached to a certain outcome doesn’t really help in this environment. I’ll explain in Rolling-With-The-Changes-Bob Davis Podcast 977.

Listen And Learn More

In conclusion clearly there’s something going on here. You’ll have to listen to find out.

Rules For WalkandTalk Podcast

Firstly, rules for the walk and talk podcast are no preparation and no plan. Just walking and talking. Time to take a break from the surreal world we live in. Join me on the walk in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Throw The Plan Out

Secondly, I did have some things I thought I would talk about in this podcast. As soon as I got outside I threw all of that out.

Switch On Summer

Above all, we’re having a warm beginning of June here in the Upper Midwest. We don’t take that lightly.

Back In The Day

On the other hand it’s still hard for me to believe that 75 days ago we were living ‘normal’ lives.

What’s Next?

These days there’s a surreal quality to everything. Consequently we don’t have a sense of where things are headed. How any of this will play out is anyone’s guess.

No Predictions Here

Above all there is my firm commitment not to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or how we should proceed. Everyone is going to have to come to their own conclusions.

Living Through Difficult Times

Certainly I wonder how people felt during times of upheaval in history. Subsequently I am sure few of those people ‘knew’ where ‘things’ were going or how it would turn out.

Sure Hope Something Else Doesn’t Happen!

For example someone remarked to me in a networking session this week, “I sure hope something else doesn’t happen!”.

Likewise I am sure.

Midnight Walk In The Moonlight Cures Just About Anything

Finally my antidote for angst about the future and the crisis we’re all living through is a midnight walk in the moonlight. Even during a curfew it works wonders every time.

Walk…And Talk

In short, join me while I take a walk and talk about some new audio equipment, the surreal times we’re living through and more in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Return On Investment Chaotic World-Podcast 646

Fast and sometimes chaotic change sometimes causes people to cling to the old days and old ways. Return On Investment Chaotic World-Podcast 646 focuses on advertising for small business.

An Incredible Time

These days individuals and small business have the ability to achieve the kind of reach only dreamt about in past eras. One of the biggest problems I encounter is the habit of small businesses to fall into small thinking.

You Put A Dollar Into One End Of This Machine and You Get Twenty

Seems like business owners think there’s a machine somewhere that converts one dollar bills into twenty dollar bills and its called ‘Return on Investment‘. Social Media. Digital Advertising. Funnels. SEO. What are these? How do you set your business apart from competitors? We’ll talk about it in Return On Investment Chaotic World-Podcast 646.

ROI Is A Pig In A Poke

You don’t build a brand – as hackneyed as that concept is these days – worrying about ‘return on investment’. You don’t build a brand with ‘Hey Come On Down’ advertising approaches. Old thinking dominates main street and our political process.

Do You Feel The World Change?

Change is especially relevant these days. Chaos is another thing. Problem is if you don’t orient yourself and your business to it, change will become chaos.

There are more yoga teachers in the United States than Coal Miners, but we are developing a major economic policy for coal miners. Internet Commerce is in the process of disrupting and destroying retail. Yet, we’re building more malls. Autonomous machines and software of all kinds is replacing workers but city councils are passing higher minimum wages. In Return On Investment Chaotic World-Podcast 646.

Delivery By Drone

Technology already exists to deliver most of major company’s commerce by drone. Regulation and approval is holding it up. Same with driverless cars and many other innovations.

Meanwhile Back At The Ranch

I think it is probably predictable that in the face of potential chaotic change, people cling to the old ways of thinking and doing. Especially when it comes to advertising and politics. Change waits for no one though. It seems like the more we wait to adapt and improvise the more potential chaos looms.

Mundane to Extraordinary

The Return on Investment trope is the trigger for a romp through a discussion of new technology and its effects. From tanks in World War I to Edward Snowden. From advertising to asymmetric threats. It is here and more is coming. Return On Investment Chaotic World-Podcast 646.
