Fun Is Good – How to Create Joy & Passion in Your Workplace & Career
By: Mike Veeck
Maverick marketing whiz Mike Veeck is ready to share his simple, fail-proof formula for business success: Make work fun and you’ll create a culture of creativity that attracts the best employees and encourages customers to spend their money. Veeck stresses the need to reexamine the way business is conducted, from employer-employee relationships to customer service. The Fun Is Good philosophy has worked to make enjoyable evenings for all at Veeck’s ballparks but has also transformed a half-dozen struggling or start-up teams into a thriving $25 million business. Peppered with firsthand accounts from businesspeople who have benefited from Veeck’s philosophy, Fun Is Good is an innovative, off-the-beaten-track approach to getting the most out of your work life, in and outside the office.
“An entertaining and educational book that reinforces Mr. Veeck’s status not only as baseball’s top marketer but also as a force to be noticed beyond the baselines.” – The Wall Street Journal
“The magic of minor league baseball is that it makes you remember the game the way you saw it as a child. I didn’t get into minor league baseball to make money and didn’t believe it was possible to do so until I met Mike Veeck. He’s a genius, and he knows that good business is all about fun. That fun should be the driving force behind most any decision.” —Bill Murray, Actor/Comedian
“Nobody makes money when you’re just selling a commodity. You have to make it bigger than it is, whether it’s selling furniture or turning a baseball game into this incredible, fun experience like Mike Veeck does. You’ve got to enhance the experience, and the best way to do it is by making things fun.” —Jim “Mattress Mac” McIngvale, CEO, Gallery Furniture
Another Boring, Derivative, Piece of Crap Business Book
By: Mike Veeck & Allen Fahden
There’s never been a book like this. It will make you laugh, and open up new thinking that’s made millions. It has a video inside. It makes stupid into the new smart. Your rivals will be so off put by the title, that they’ll never stoop to read it. This gets you in the clear to leap, and they won’t even know what hit them.
So, if 75% of people admit to only reading the 1st chapter of the 350,000 business books published each year, doesn’t it just make sense to put all the valuable, insightful content in the 1st chapter? Done! The message of the book is rather simple … and brilliant; By working within your strengths and on something you are passionate about, you will be engaged, have fun and find success and so will your company, association, team, etc. Said another way … Fun Is Good! After you’ve read the 1st chapter, you’ll be motivated to read on to the following 50 entertaining chapters with stories to support Chapter 1.
