Dilly dilly: How millennials are changing (not killing) the beer industry

Posted On August 22, 2018

What do you see when you step into the beer aisle at the grocery store? Twenty years ago, you probably would have seen a lot of Budweiser, Miller and Coors products, mixed with a few imports like Corona and Foster’s. Walk down a beer aisle in practically any grocery store today and you’ll still see a lot of Bud, Miller and Coors. But you’ll also see scores of other obscure brands – craft and local brewers, many of whom weren’t in existence five years ago, much less 20.

Stop blaming millennials for the internet’s dirty work

Posted On August 20, 2018

So apparently Business Insider isn’t the only outlet obsessed with blaming millennials for the demise of pretty much any product that’s seeing a slip in sales. Quartz published a piece recently blaming millennials for what it termed the death of the classic novel. In making this claim, writer Ajinomoh Ozovehe Caleb compared sales of J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye upon its release in 1951 with a newer critically acclaimed work, Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, which sold only half as many copies per year as Salinger’s masterpiece. Caleb further noted that it’s almost unheard of now for… Read More

Saddle up for a ride into the wild, wild West of buying and selling a business

Posted On August 18, 2018

Say you’re a business owner who is ready to retire. You don’t have anyone in the family to pass the business along to, and you’re looking to sell. Do you know where to start? Or say you’re in the market to buy an existing business. How would you go about it?

Implicit bias: Confronting the monster you don’t even know is there

Posted On August 14, 2018

When we last spoke with Melanie Miller, she joined us for an enlightening discussion about sexual harassment and how to avoid fostering a hostile work environment.  In this episode of “What’s Working with Cam Marston,” Miller turns her sharp eye to the problem of implicit bias and its effects on hiring practices. The concept of implicit bias is the idea that we all have unconscious beliefs about people who are different than us, regardless of how open-minded we believe we are. “I believe to be human is to be biased,” Miller says. Even if we aren’t consciously aware of them,… Read More

Another ridiculous fabricated reason millennials can’t afford to buy a house

Posted On August 10, 2018

In the digital age of social media white noise, media outlets make their money by attracting eyeballs. Two of the ways they try to do this are by jumping on popular topics and inventing new angles until they run them into the ground, and by using what we now commonly refer to as “clickbait” – misleading or sensationalized headlines that draw readers to click on a story that ultimately doesn’t deliver the shock that was promised. Today.com, the website of NBC’s Today Show, recently checked both these boxes with one post that took the stereotyping of millennials to a new… Read More

Is feedback a gift or a punch in the mouth? Depends on how it’s done

Posted On August 2, 2018

Is feedback really a gift? We like to say that it is, but sometimes it feels like a punch in the mouth. That’s because feedback is often not given or received in a way that allows it to be appreciated or effective. To be effective, it has to be appreciated – or at least accepted. So says our guest in this episode of “What’s Working with Cam Marston” – Michael Nash of Nash Consulting, whose 18 years of direct executive management experience and 20 years of work as a consultant, executive coach and trainer are a testament to the wisdom… Read More

Good, sticky, meaningful feedback is tricky to deliver. When done well, though, it’s unbeatable.

Posted On August 1, 2018

“Feedback is a gift.” “Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” Platitudes we’ve all heard that make us roll our eyes. However, done correctly, giving feedback makes the recipient interested, grateful, and better at what they do. And the same holds true when given to you and me. Michael Nash teaches this leadership skill and gives us some remarkable insights into the art and craft of giving and receiving feedback. Check out this episode!
