There is no arguing that today’s business world suffers from a severe lack of METAL. And thus it has been for quite some time now, despite the fact that, for the past 50 years or so, Heavy Metal Musicians have created lucrative global brands from basic four-chord progressions and… denim jackets. And not exactly in silence.
Why is it that modern business people have so profoundly failed to embrace more metal in their everyday journey to the Top Management Levels?
Frankly, we don’t know. We sense that there is some “fear of flying”, some “nobody has done it that way before” and “I’m so uncool I HAD to go to business school to compensate” involved in the matter. But even more frankly, we might just not give a shit.
We act, instead. And this is where it all begins.
Heavy Metal Management is a comprehensive, yet easy-to-read, management guide-book that takes a realistic view on what can be accomplished with a few (or a shitload) doses of Heavy Metal in the management stew.
You want fame and success, right? You want people to throw themselves at your feet, buying T-shirts with your picture and name, and you want to have it all, right now, right?
Good news: it CAN be done!
Bad news: It takes work. There ain’t no getting anyplace with some “one minute management” here and some “search for excellence” there.
Back to good news: it’s still attainable. You’re probably already working your butt off, right? So why not do it with a bit of Hell Bent For Leather-Attitude?
After all, if the Great Heroes of Heavy Metal are, as your mom and dad probably claimed in the seventies, a bunch of no-good half-wits, how come it’s them laughing all the way to the bank in their Ferrari’s and not you?
Regardless of your sex, it takes BALLS to pull that off.
And here’s the best news: We’re gonna help you all the way.
Just buy our book and let’s get rolling!
