picframer will become famous soon enough

If Microsoft stayed with DOS and Mr. Gates said no Windows, MAC would have blown them out of the water by now. I am not a big Windows fan but I can tell you Windows 7 is friggin amazing.

Why is McDonald's the largest food chain in the world when A & W has been around longer.....McDonald's was the first with drive through, I remember as a kid when it happened and people thought they were nuts, people would never go for fast food....that was the thought and feedback when I was a kid.

It doesn't matter what big company I look at, the CEO always had people below him or her that was smarter or brought a skill to the table they did not have.

As a CEO I have been in meetings where I thought my management team had learned a foreign language, my job.....did it make sense and if it did you better listen to your staff and do it, almost every time the new product offering worked, man I learned a lot from the last team I had.

I hired a guy for our marketing that took the oldest but smallest beer company in Canada to one of the largest in about two years, his ideas were off the wall but I remember the first trade show we did, I didn't care for or think what he was going to do would work, OMG it took us a year of busting our butt's to catch up with the business from that one show, it was in the millions. My thoughts were old school, he was fresh and full of amazing ideas.

So once again if what we are doing isn't keeping us going out straight and growing, then what we are doing is not what the market wants, so the question is what does the market want??? Pretty simple, ask them.
