“The bad habit of focusing on what you sell (what you do) vs. who you are (what makes you different).” This is a very very fair point about B2B marketing.

The Simpsons LEGO Episode Looks Surprisingly Fascinating. LEGO has been practically inescapable the last few months, thanks mostly to The LEGO Movie . And most Simpsons fans have probably seen the top-dollar LEGO collectors edition of the cartoon family that was released a few months back, plus the frequent reminders that a LEGO-themed episode of the Matt Groening mainstay was coming soon.
