    HOT! EXECUTION 
    An excerpt from the article. "Why does more money mean more happy days ahead? Wolfers says he leaves that up to others to decide, but he has one theory: “It may be that the relationship is not between your income and the number of iPhones you can buy; it’s about the choices you can make.â€...

    Great example of a marketing twist.

    MARKETING 
    I found this interesting example of how twisting a product with a new use or message can move product. Its the "One line a day memory book." Evidently they sell like hotcakes. Its a journal with enough room to write a memory down in one line for 5 years. Interesting how they presented the...

    Great example of MJ's lesson-distressed property ride over?

    REAL ESTATE 
    This a great real world example from Mj's book. I ran across a short podcast on NPR and, if you listen between the lines, it follows MJ's advice closely relating to the story about a plumber talking about buying rental property. In this story a firefighter is buying distressed real estate and...

    Interesting tale of a hustler.
