  • The Grommet Grill with Beth Feldman

    Today marks the fourth installment in our series the Grommet Grill (check out our first respondents, Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Brogan and Leslie Carothers). This is a series of  quick interviews with people in our community.  Our community members tend to be people who are uber-passionate about the companies and products they support.  So we decided to turn the table and ask them to imagine what they would do if they were on the “creator” side of the equation.

    Grommet Grill with BethFeldmanToday's Grommet Grill is with Beth Feldman. Beth is the President of Role Mommy, an online community created to inspire, entertain and inform today's busy moms. Beth is also a former network TV Executive, PR maven and author -- she has her thumb on the pulse of what's important to women and families and she is definitely someone we enjoy connecting with.

    Grommet: If you were a product what would be your tagline?

    Beth: You've gotta believe.

    Grommet: What's your favorite product ever and why?
    Beth: It's a tie between my Uggs slippers and my MacBook Air. There is nothing like wearing comfy cozy Uggs while checking status updates on Facebook.
  • The Grommet Grill with Leslie Carothers

    A few weeks ago, we kicked of a new series called the Grommet Grill (check out our first respondent, Whoopi Goldberg and our second, Chris Brogan). This is a series of  quick interviews with people in our community.  Our community members tend to be people who are uber-passionate about the companies and products they support.  So we decided to turn the table and ask them to imagine what they would do if they were on the “creator” side of the equation.

    Grommet Grill with Leslie CarothersToday's Grommet Grill is with Leslie Carothers. Leslie is the CEO of The Kaleidoscope Partnership, a social media agency for the furniture and interior design industry. She's also one of our favorite people to tweet with (follow her here).

    Grommet: If you were a product what would be your tagline?

    Leslie: I own a website, http://messagesofhope.com, which, today, is empty, but which, one day - I hope soon, will deliver those messages, via products, to millions around the world.

  • The Grommet Grill with Chris Brogan

    A few weeks ago, we kicked of a new series called the Grommet Grill (check out our first respondent, Whoopi Goldberg). This is a series of  quick interviews with people in our community.  Our community members tend to be people who are uber-passionate about the companies and products they support.  So we decided to turn the table and ask them to imagine what they would do if they were on the "creator" side of the equation.

    Here's our second respondent: Chris Brogan. Chris is no doubt an digital-influencer, however we were most impressed with his mission to send handwritten thank you notes.   Pen or pixel, we knew Chris would have some great answers to our Grommet Grill -- and we were right. Read on:

    ..................

    Grommet: If you were a product what would be your tagline?

    Chris: It's not fancy, but it works.

     

    Grommet: What's your favorite product ever and why?

    Chris: My favorite product ever is the blog, because it allows millions to build a business or simply declare a voice.

     

    Grommet: If you could have invented a product what would have it been?

    Chris: I wish I invented Dropbox, because it's such a simple idea, but is changing everything.

     

    Grommet: Did you ever buy something and regret it?

    Chris: Only on days ending in Y.

     

    Grommet: Who do you think is the best spokesperson for a product?

    Chris: I think the passionate user would be the best spokesperson.

     

    Grommet: What product would you like to see disappear?

    Chris: This list is too large to print. Snuggies. Start there.

     

    Blogs and Dropbox? We're not surprised by Chris' online focus. But we are shocked by his lack of luster for Snuggies (okay, not really).

    Be sure to connect with Chris on Twitter at @ChrisBrogan and stay tuned for our next Grommet Grill!

  • The Grommet Grill with Whoopi Goldberg!

    We're kicking of a new series of quick interviews with people in our community.  They tend to be people who are uber-passionate about the companies and products they support.  So we decided to turn the table and ask them to imagine what they would do if they were on the "creator" side of the equation.  We're calling this series the Grommet Grill.

    Daily Grommet Q & A with  Whoopi
    Here's our first respondent:  the indubitable Whoopi Goldberg.  Her co-workers on The View say she's pretty tough to buy for…since she is a super savvy consumer herself.  So we were especially curious to know what catches her eye.

    Grommet: If you were a product, what would be your tagline?

    Whoopi:  You're good to go!

    Grommet: What's your favorite product ever, and why?
    Whoopi:  Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, because they do what they say they're going to do .
    Grommet: If you could invent a product, what would it have been?
    Whoopi: The company that records what alarms should sound [like] ... and designer fire extinguishers.
    .............

    .....................................................................

    It sounds like Ms. Goldberg runs a sparkling-clean household.  As she knows, we have a Grommet for that.  Several, in fact.  And we can only imagine what sounds Whoopi would record for the next generation of alarms.
    Thanks Whoopi!
