Oh my, that guy IS passionate about business cards.


You can see why he builds crowds...possibly in the same way that religious fanatics do so in Union Square here...? Nice job in picking out the salient points from the psychotic, however, with some sound tips for musicians to apply.

Saw him speak live a few years ago. He kept this level of energy up the entire time. Was thinking, "Nobody is going to take this guy seriously..."

When he was done, the guy next to me leaned over and said, "Wasn't that amazing?"

Lots of other people thought the same thing, because he sold a ton of product, which I think was something related to influence. Had the colors you should wear, etc.

On a related note, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoIvd3zzu4Y has another video you might get a kick out of.

oh my god, can you imagine spending dinner with this guy? what a nightmare...

I think that his approach is abrasive and hard to handle but, as a self managed musician,recording artist with an educated background in special event marketing I see beyond his performance. What he is saying is - Think outside the box!

His point of producing good first impression promotional products is essential if you are to get noticed. Take notice of what others do and make your thing important too. Be proactive, take chances, share your thoughts with others, help others too, and it will come back to you.

Be sure to ask Captain Lou what HE thinks about Joel after their joint teleconference a few weeks ago. Joel's comment, "I don't have to stand in front of the ocean to impress people" may not have gone over too well - LOL!

Captain Lou

I don't know what I love about Joel more, his HUMILITY (wink, wink), or his team spirit and ability to build his fellow experts up. Hmmm, I think it's his hair.

Every since he told me I was getting too tall for my hair and looked like Jesus Christ (with my arms outstretched), I've never been the same.

Love him or hate him, he sure does know how to maximize business card real estate!

I think he has seen American Psycho a few too many times.
