Business... it's all about Billy T

The hilarious Billy T. James

Running a business... is tough business. Not so much for those who learn to mix work with a bit of play. Those who don't take themselves (or others) too seriously. People who retain the humility to take the mickey (or billy) out of themselves and keep the madness alive. Everyday.

Come to think of it, what is business if not all Billy T...
Ability - Possibility - Responsibility - Accountability - Profitability

That's it. Nothing more to it than that. Get it right and you'll be an overnight success - in 10 years! Just remember to work smart very hard. And don't forget to sweat your glutes off. May improve your marketability!

Incidentally, my muse for this post... Billy T. James (1948 - 1991) was in the hee-haa business. A Maori entertainer, he was New Zealand's most famous comedian - funniest man to have ever walked Godzone. There's something about him. One look and you crack up. Just look at him!

There's even a popular Comedy Award named after him where the winner takes home a Billy T trademark - the ridiculously famous yellow towel.

In fact, he was so good at the business of making people cry with laughter, God called him upstairs a score or two early. Not fair, big G!

Here's Billy T's screenography + 3 ticklish gags. Pure enjoyability!
