The Risk of Being a 1 PercenterJanuary 3, 2007
One of the concepts in the book Citizen Marketers is that the people who take the time to care about your business are the 1 Percenters, as in the other 99% have better things to do. The 1% thing is traced back to Hell’s Angels in the 70s, people that dropped out of society to ride.
As with everything, the concept got co-opted and now everyone wants to be a 1 Percenter. Well, not everyone. But probably more than 1 percent.
All this is a lead in to get you to read this Lewis Green post: Join the 1 Percenters and Risk Success
Being part of the 1% might not be comfortable for everyone, but pushing yourself into it can pay rewards, as Green well points out.
