So what can brands learn from Case Sengel? The lessons are there, you just have to read between the lines.

You’ve never heard of Casey Stengel?? Ah– you must be a young person: someone under the age of 50!
Casey was one of major league baseball’s true eccentrics. He died back in 1975, but he still inspires, and his legend lives on. I was reminded of this when I read a wonderful review of Marty Appel’s new biography: Casey Stengel: Baseball’s Greatest Character. The review was written by Leigh Montville. It appeared in The Wall Street Journal Weekend Edition. The review was titled: The Lunatic Wore Pinstripes.
I’ve heard many Stengel anecdotes over the years– including the one about him doffing his cap at the plate one day and having a bird fly out (for the record: a sparrow). Mr. Montville began his review with one that was new to me. It made me roar with laughter.
His first professional game was with the Kankakee Kays, a minor league team in
the Northern Association. Their ballpark was across the street from the 119-acre Kankakee State Hospital, formerly known as the Illinois Eastern Hospital for the Insane. The residents would watch the games from their windows, and the spectators could watch the residents watch. Sensibilities being a bit different 107 years ago, the team on the field was soon known in the newspapers and through word of mouth as the Lunatics.

Identifying a “need” isn’t enough: People need to lose weight for their long-term health, but most don’t. (In the USA, over 68% of adults are overweight or obese). People need to switch to environmental transportation options to reduce air pollution, but most don’t. (Fuel emissions from private...  ...Read more

Having a web shop that drives traffic is one thing. Nothing really special about it. It’s basically opening a store in a crowded part of the town. You fire up your marketing and people start visiting you. How neat is that? Too bad if they do a 180° turn and leave without any indication of inter...  ...Read more

1. Are you eating? These are simple questions. But they get at the heart of the basic needs of a human. Food, drink, shelter, sleep, and oxygen. To be fair, the likely answer to these questions will be yes, but they get at the underlying grinding nature the challenge in starting or running a com...  ...Read more

I heard from a friend this week that their company was shutting down and, frankly, I was shocked. I wasn’t an investor in the company but I knew their investors well. The company was a darling in their respective portfolios. They were executing incredibly well. Then, they were gone. Where, once...  ...Read more

After the iPhone X launch event there is a lot of discussion about its distinctive “notch” at the top of the screen, which is housing the cameras and sensors that enable Face ID. Many people, especially designers, are voicing their opinions that it is ugly and it’s something that is not up to App...  ...Read more
