FedEx Meeting with Famous Person Photobomb2014-01-28 11.00.23

This past week has been an incredible amount of serendipity for Super Happy Juice.  Our FedEx account manager was able to deliver with a very positive shipping structure that will really give us the flexibility to launch our Brand.  He has been just incredible with his efforts and results.  And, we were blessed with a “famous person” photobomb in my PotD.  If you can guess who it is, I will send you a free bottle or two of Super Happy Juice–shipped via FedEx, of course!

Super Happy Juice also had a fantastic experience at a Pre-Grammy Party promoted by PlanetLA Music and hosted at The Village Recording Studios

There was an incredible amount of like-minded people and a great way to begin to promote the brand.

Of course, it makes it easy when your business partner is very photogenic.

Me and my Super Happy Juice Business Partner

Last week, I made it up to San Fransisco for the Fancy Foods Show

I used to live in Berkeley, and returning to The City brought back a few memories.  There is an energy in SF that is vibrant and palpable; different than Los Angeles, which is a little flashier. I definitely need to visit more!

As the focus of this post, I made several new contacts and reestablished a few older ones.  It’s refreshing to see people after a “break” of a couple of years, and be able to pick up where we left off.  Lesson Learned:  ALWAYS be polite, nice, and memorable.  (aka, Super Happy)

Today I had two events at the alma mater UCLA-Anderson.  One event was listening to David Booth, co Founder of Dimensional Fund Advisors,, and someone who gave a few hundred million to endow a business school.  (Many Million) I have a standing rule to always listen to a Billionaire, regardless of what they are saying.  They have done something right, and there is always something to learn.

The second event was a mentoring event put on by Anderson EDGE, a great program run by an alumni friend of mine.  I was able to reconnect with a person I mentored last year, and catch up with some challenges she was having with her sales team.  Additionally, I was able to help two other former classmates of mine with some of their sales challenges too.  In a nice, quid pro quo I was also recommended to a few good people that can help @SuperHappyJuice.

Very excited about the next few days.  Our website is going live on Friday, so I’m relying on some very trusted people.

I wouldn’t want it any other way.

(And if you made it this far, thank you for reading this)
