18 The Possibility Habit with Scott Ginsberg

Are you creating possibility with every encounter?  How memorable are you to those you meet?  Every situation presents an opportunity.  The possibilities in front of us are endless if we’re willing to be a little more innovative and a little less imitative. 

“..innovation is to creativity like execution is to ideas” – Scott Ginsberg quoting Henrik Zillmer

In this episode of The Why and The Buy, we interview Scott Ginsberg, the Nametag guy.  Scott has an unusual claim to fame, he has worn a nametag for almost 7000 days or the equivalent of 17 years…WOW!  If that wasn’t enough, he even had the nametag tattooed on his chest just in case the stickiness wore off.  Don’t be fooled though, this is not a discussion about marketing gimmicks, we cover all manner of topics including:

  • What does “this” make possible?
  • Being innovative vs imitative
  • Confessions of a recovering people pleaser
