Think Differentish

Another job machines can do better

Ever since the Fast Company profile, a lot of people have been asking me about my business model. They say "How can you run a multi-million dollar marketing firm without ANY employees?" I tell them that I replaced all my employees with 17" MacBook Pro and never looked back. 

How does it work? Marketing is all about image, and nothing says "cool" like Apple's sleek aluminum body. Turns out that all my former uber-cool young staff's one functionality, hipness, could be replaced by a bunch of machines. 

Some people have decried my strategy, saying that it will kill thousands of insufferably cool jobs in New York, San Francisco, and Portland. But you can't look back at how it used to work. It's time to replace your hipster employees with Macs.
