S2 E3: Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning. Is it a corporate buzz word? Yep. Do well paid people spend way too much time fretting over PowerPoint presentations in a fleeting effort to wordsmith the phrase "my plan is to grow the business and my ideas need money."? Yep. Did Keith and Carl put their podcast on hiatus because "planning season" sucked every minute of their time, like a child annoyingly sucking down that seemingly unending last drop of a chocolate malt? Yep.

Well, Keith and Carl are back and ready to drop their opinions on a topic that is close to home, and frankly, took part in their home. Successful businesses use strategic planning to drive results in the coming year, and Carl, being the planner that he is, thought it would be a stellar idea for the duo to create a strategic plan for the podcast on the podcast. Do you think they will hit their growth goals?

While they were away from each other, Keith and Carl missed exploring the other's life through their random, unscripted questions in their favorite section of the podcast, "Keith and Carl Become Friends". Listen in as they discuss 90's sitcoms, cool cars and bench seats.

Follow along as Keith and Carl humorously force a new friendship. Each episode includes a section called, "Keith and Carl Become Friends", the hosts will ask each other a mystery personal question.

The heart of the show will center around a "Work Short Topic of the Day". Keith and Carl will explore various topics while providing their possibly misguided perspectives and interpretations, often a result of their perverse, yet oddly relate-able, childhood and young adult experiences.

Co-creator, writer & host of Work Shorts. Speaking of shorts... The older I get, the higher shorts sit on my thigh and with considerably less pockets. While less functional, I've been told they are more fashionable. A tanner thigh is cool, too, I suppose.
