There are two salvations of my morning drive. One is a smoothie. The other is a radio spot promoting NorthStar Ford, which is owned by Marty Giles.
In a market fraught with lackluster radio spots, the NorthStar Ford commercials are smart, compelling, and original. Giles writes the ads himself, which proves that you don't need an MBA to be a marketing hero (you don't even need a degree-Giles is a self-described "University of Calgary drop-out").
Want a real man’s haircut? Hit up Tommy Gun’s and take advantage of their great services. Free drinks, snacks, and arcade games to boot, plus a wide selection of men’s grooming products. It’s a win-win. They also own Fat Franks. What a company!
The Tavern on Main
Great service, great location and basically any beer in the world at your disposal. If you haven’t been there yet, check it out. Also, it’s Fort McMurray in a nutshell. A place where blue collar meets white collar and everything in between.
Ever have trouble with the instructions from Ikea, or getting a handle on a new email program? Does working with a new team on a complex project get you down? Do you reach for a calculator to figure out the tip on your restaurant lunch?
Sometimes, especially at work, wrapping your head around a new project or assignment can elicit a resounding “Huh?” or “I don’t get it.”
That’s usually because something, buried somewhere in all the little niggly details, is just evading your grasp.
