New Business Model: T-Shirts

by Dave Michels

TP-TeeAt the recent Mitel BPC event, which took place in Hollywood Florida, I was able to make it down to the beach a few times. I grew up in California, so I find the Florida coast familiar but warmer. Anyway, I feel an obligation to jump in the sea when visiting a coastal resort (as do some other analysts), so I opted to sport my TalkingPointz Tee.

TalkingPointz isn’t just about witty and fair insights into enterprise communications, it is also about safety. The sun’s UV rays can cause premature aging and skin cancer. It’s unlikely that my TalkingPointz T-shirt offers any real protection, but at least I looked sharp.

How sharp? I got two orders!

No self respecting telecommunications professional should be without a TalkingPointz Tee. These shirts are now available for a flat rate of $10 including lower 48 shipping. The shirt, when accompanied by the optional Veg-O-Matic (sold separately) can slice and dice tomatoes, potatoes, and bass.

To order your shirt just send me a note. It’s that easy. Operators are standing by and smoking.
