Takeaway #144 Murs + 9th Wonder inspire lessons in Goodwill and pricing power

***

You must give respect to get respected

Treat others how you wish to be treated

You give what you get and the cycle is completed ***

 Murs & 9th Wonder     Pusshhhhh

Takeaway 144:  Golden Rule is obvious, but the fact that it is a cyclical environment that allows for recycling of goodwill is lost.  It is not zero-sum gain.  Remember it is not always an exchange for an exchange.  Goodwill builds overtime.  It becomes more valuable the more you do it.  It takes time because good will builds your reputation.  Your reputation builds your brand.  Your brand is the product that allows you to be valued at a premium.  Give to get.

About codemizell

The Beats Per Management collective (“The BPM”) is curator for C.O.D.E Mizell and supports the repurposing of hip hop content for professional success. BPM consists of former Hip Hop junkies now living in the corporate world. BPM members carried milk crates of 12” records when “bpm” used to mean beats-per-minute for mixing music, now BPM members focus on Excel spreadsheets, legal briefs, power points, whiteboard-scribbling and business plans. BPM cannot shake the instant recall of Hip Hop lyrics. The good news is that BPM realized that these lyrics had application to its daily management concerns. BPM does not claim to have captured the true artist intent in its lyrical analysis, BPM seeks only to celebrate the role that hype-lyrics can play in the daily grind to get business done in the corporate world. This is not a glorification of urban pop-culture or a debate on the poetic merits of rap, we leave that to the literary critics and socio-political commentators. If you disagree with BPM send us your spin on the lyrics. We have an open mind, and hope you do. The “BPM Takeaways” dispense reminders for your business day. Hopefully, the next time a referenced-cut is heard on the radio, it will trigger your “Takeaway” and not just flashbacks to the music video. A quote-a-day will make you a better executive. BPM hopes to keep all advice short and to the point – Executive Summary Style. Technically the lyrics are “raps” and the culture of the genre is “hip hop” but lets not get overly technical -- substance not form that controls here. The point is you are putting that untapped knowledge to use. And to think they said that Hip-Hop would get you nowhere…puhhleasse. -Roscoe Waxx for BPM
