Arguably, America’s first social influencer was Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was one of the leading figures of early America. Known as a statesman, scientist, inventor and diplomat. However, through his pseudonym “Poor Richard” and its namesake almanac add author and publisher to his resume. Franklin’s quick wit and written repartee made him a favorite in both America and Europe. He is still very popular because we still use some of his famous quotes today.
Let’s first dispel the myth and report that two quotes that many attribute to Franklin or Poor Richard were common sayings at the time. The first being “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” was more than likely written in the almanac but is an old Welsh saying. The other was “why put off to tomorrow what you can do today” was much older, some linguists even think that it may have its roots in Ancient Greek. Now onto some quips that we know are Franklin’s. Probably one of, if not the most famous, is “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man health, wealth and wise.” In today’s world of constant electronic interruption many of us are falling asleep reading emails or watching videos, more than likely staying up too late which in turn makes it difficult for us to wake up in the morning. This adage reminds us of our work/life balance. How about this line to help your business: “Love your enemies, for they tell you your faults.” We learn from this that our competition, especially when comparing their benefits to ours, can discover the improvements needed in our products. It brings to mind that famous saying from the Godfather movie series, “keep your friends close, your enemies closer.” And finally, for today’s entrepreneurs the saying “Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship" still is applicable. A warning to all of us to ensure that we keep a diligent eye on our expenses, of course we are talking about another famous Franklin statement “a penny saved is a penny earned.”
At one time Franklin stated: "Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead." That saying can also be applied to Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI is your secret that will help you earn more than a few pennies when invested in. Savvy businesses today know that it’s okay to be a little stealth when it comes to finding an advantage and AI is that weapon that is helping these businesses remain on target to better-than-expected profit targets. For some businesses it’s a matter of finding the right application for the right purpose, others are using AI to look at their data in a new light. That is where NP Marketing Group is here to help.
