One Thing: Day 586: Ukraine. Putin. Zelenskky.

Day 586: Ukraine. Putin. Zelenskky.

Last week I finished off telling you how I accidentally made 120 pancakes for breakfast as well as how I cranked a rival Dad’s lawnmower first try right in front of his wife and kids.

Speaking of my many talents…

My 8-year-old daughter and I had a harrowing experience walking our dog in the snow over the weekend…

While walking on the icy dock, our precious little dog, Bella the Pug, fell 3 feet into the lake.

Before I knew it an amazing German tourist had already jumped into the freezing water to save my little dog who may have drowned due to the temperature and big waves…

After he climbed out with our dog, Bella… here’s our conversation:

German Tourist: “Here is ze dog, keep him warm and dry him off. He will be fine…”

Me: “Are you a vet?”

German Tourist: “Vet, I’m fuc*ing soaking.”

In other news…

Anyone else notice Disney stock is down over 20% over the past few months?

Asking for a friend.



‘Business Friends’

On my podcast, I’ve often talked about how business is like “war” and how the

WORST war strategy is to be predictable.

It’s how you get your troops killed.

With Mothers, Fathers, Children and people of Ukraine on my mind, I give you

todays piece of Profit Acceleration in a sentence…

“An enemy of an enemy is a friend.”

You’ll notice Ukraine and Volodymyr Zelenskyy (great name!) have a LOT of new friends since Putin decided to start throwing grenades.


Does a potential joint venture partner of yours have “an enemy” you can leverage to get a partnership going?


Walmart vs Amazon

McDonalds vs Burger King

Pepsi vs Coke

Apple vs Samsung

Marriot vs Airbnb

DC vs Marvel

Netflix vs Disney

Starbucks vs Dunkin Donuts

Uber vs Lyft

SpaceX vs Blue Origin

Instagram vs Tiktok

For you it might be:

Local Accountant vs National Brand

Local cafe vs National Brand

Local gym vs National Brand

Local landscaper vs National franchise

Then go granular to individual rivalries…

Old Chamber President vs New Chamber President

Old BNI chapter lead vs New BNI chapter lead

Old golf course President vs New golf course president


You’ll need to do some homework and ask some clever questions to get to the

information you need.

Being unpredictable is a LOT harder than being predictable.

Go find an enemy of an enemy and become fast friends.

You heard it here first.

A consultant in your network might need to read this today…

… forward it to them.

Now, pick up the phone and go help someone.

PS. Those that love peace need to organize as effectively as those that love war.

PPS. If this helps and you want it to really sink in… GO TEACH IT to someone cause that’s the best way for you to learn it. A friend, your spouse, a client etc…
