1. Entrepreneurial Spirit Alive in Memphis -

Steve Jobs once said, “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the square pegs in the round holes … the ones who see things differently … they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

2. Made in Memphis -

Memphis’ geography is limited to roughly 300 square miles, but its identity stretches beyond the city limits, resonating to the far corners of the globe.

The city’s brand has obvious cornerstones, such as its place in the nation’s cultural topography. But setting aside those no-brainers, like the rock ‘n’ roll innovator whose mansion in Whitehaven still attracts gawkers from around the world, a lot of what makes Memphis’ story is the story of what’s made in Memphis.

3. South Main’s New Life -

The history of the South Main Historic Arts District is as colorful as its present-day users, an alternating rhythm of sorts in Memphis’ songbook.

The area has oscillated from its ritzy suburban roots of the 1800s to the industrial era ghost town of the 20th century and now to its current status as Downtown’s flourishing arts and boutique district and the subject of some $100 million in investment. And it’s all due to stakeholders who braved the status quo in distinguishing the southern end of the Central Business District as that funky place with an indescribable vibe.

4. A Higher Order of Sausage -

GOD’S SAUSAGE. (When you see this column, it’s the 40 Days of Waffle Shop again, so strike while the iron is hot.)

“You might just be a copywriter,” Brick Muller said, staring down at the piece of paper I’d just handed him. On it was an ad idea I’d just pounded out on the 1948 Royal typewriter he was paying me to use as a copywriter. The fact that this was his first recognition that I might be one was gratifying since I’d already been there for nine months.

5. City’s Past Filled with Blueprint of Success -

Go to any public meeting where plans for an area are being made, buzz words are flying, big sheets of paper are being written on and “stakeholders” are sitting in various clusters, and you will hear numerous people suggest that all the area needs are spaces for shops.

6. Harnessing Strategic Business Growth -

If you’re not growing, you’re dying anonymous. Growth: That Crazy Talk. Call it the entrepreneurial instinct, innovation, business savvy, whatever you want: strategic growth is how business prospers.

7. Defining Memphis: The Wrap-Up -

Last week we spotlighted more heartfelt responses to the question: “What does Memphis mean to you?” It has been amazing, over the last few weeks, to have Memphians share their personal thoughts and how they define our great city. This week let us offer one last set of colorful responses – but I encourage you to keep the conversation alive as we work together to create our Memphis narrative and spread it worldwide.

8. Waffle Shop Again Answers Prayers -

GOD’S SAUSAGE. “You might just be a copywriter,” Brick Muller said, staring down at the piece of paper I’d just handed him. On it was an ad idea I’d just pounded out on the 1948 Royal typewriter he was paying me to use as a copywriter. The fact that this was his first recognition that I might be one was gratifying since I’d already been there for nine months.

9. Council to Weigh Pink Palace Funding -

A $20 million upgrade of the Memphis Pink Palace Museum tops the Tuesday, Feb. 21, Memphis City Council agenda that also includes two items key to Overton Square redevelopment and $510,000 in capital appropriations for the Memphis Area Transit Authority.

10. A. Schwab to Host Elvis Birthday Bash -

The landmark A. Schwab general store at 163 Beale St. will mark its transition to new ownership Saturday, Jan. 7, as it also celebrates in advance what would have been the 77th birthday of Elvis Presley on Sunday, Jan. 8.

11. Memphis – With a Bow On Top -

GIVE MEMPHIS TO SOMEBODY YOU LOVE. Put a polar bear and a panda under the tree. But walk them first. You really don’t want all that on the living room rug. Do this yourself; don’t ask Santa. Polar bears make reindeer skittish.

12. City’s Story Recounted in ‘Memphis 101’ -

A cross-section of native Memphians and Memphians by choice spent the afternoon of Tuesday, Nov. 9, exploring the stories that shaped the city during “Memphis 101,” a free, public event held biannually at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.

13. The Show Must Go On -

LIVE APPLAUSE. All are in the cast, all responsible for the experience, and all of us have a lot to show for it.

The lines may be drawn on a two-by-four to guide a saw instead of spoken on stage to guide an audience. The song might be whistled to accompany a hammer instead of sung to accompany a chorus. Equal parts sewing needles and director needling. Equal props for props and performances. Equal respect for those who guide you to your seat and those whose talent stands you straight up from it.

14. TDN’s 125 Years Reflects Its Hometown -

It is the city’s original database, but The Daily News – which marks its 125th anniversary this year – began providing essential public information long before even the most primitive computer was built.

15. Events -

The GOTV Club will present a seminar titled “Healthcare Reform for Business Owners” Tuesday, July 26, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Crescent Club, 6075 Poplar Ave., suite 909.

18. Rejuvenating Sears Crosstown Building Needs Civic Vision -

When it opened in 1927, the Sears Crosstown building employed more than 1,000 people and drew shoppers from at least three states to a store that sold everything from candy to horse harnesses to homebuilding materials.

19. Sustainable Real Estate to be Subject of Conference -

Planners of an upcoming conference are hoping to put Memphis on the map even more so than it already is.

The Conference On Sustainable Real Estate is slated for March 24 to 26 at the University of Memphis. The conference – modeled after a similar program offered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology – brings to Memphis internationally recognized leaders on sustainable real estate, land economics, land planning and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, construction procedures.

20. Avoiding Brain Whiplash -

Interesting stuff: One of the original inspirations for the Toyota Production System was a supermarket. According to Toyota, engineer Taiichi Ohno visited a U.S. supermarket and was impressed with how they delivered their goods in a “simple, efficient and timely manner.” Ohno took a look sideways and saw a whole new business model.

21. Keedoozle of a Story -

Clarence Saunders was all that and a bag of groceries.

The difference between Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby and our own Clarence Saunders is that Gatsby is fiction. Both were fabulously wealthy, self-made, flamboyant masters of the 1920s. One is a famous literary work. The other is a famous piece of work who changed the way everyone lives.

22. Committees Not Needed For Creativity -

Creativity goes to committee meetings to die.

“In all the towns and all the cities there are no statues to committees.”

Unknown, probably someone shot down by a committee.

“So,” he said to the committee, “I’ll buy a bunch of jets, fill them with cardboard envelopes, and guarantee overnight delivery … and all I need to get started is, oh, about a zillion dollars.” The committee would have absolutely, positively said no to Fred Smith. They would have told Clarence Saunders that schlepping your own groceries would never work. They would have told Kemmons Wilson where to park his motel idea. They would have told Charlie Vergos that nobody is going to get fired up about ribs from a basement off an alley next to a dumpster.

23. Startup Weekend To Foster Multiple Ideas -

Memphis is known for its entrepreneurs, from Clarence Saunders inventing the self-service grocery store to Kemmons Wilson inventing the hotel chain to Fred Smith inventing overnight package delivery.

24. Tennessee's Small-Business Champion Plans Grand Events in Memphis -

Mark White started Grand Events and Party Rentals with his brother Stan 18 years ago. They had one truck and two employees - themselves - and they worked 'round the clock to establish their nascent company as the city's premier event planner.
