Business lessons from Weird Al
In the surprise success story of the month, Weird Al Yankovic is taking social media and the Billboard charts by storm. His comedy album "Mandatory Fun" is top of the charts, particularly notable because the last time a comedy album took the #1 spot was some 50 years ago.
At Forbes, Richard Eisenberg says "Truth is, however, that Weird Al made four brilliant career moves that helped catapult him to No. 1 - and I suggest other midlifers emulate them." See 4 Career Lessons From Weird Al Yankovic. We think agents could relate to the first lesson: "He didn't bemoan the way his business changed, he embraced it."
Here are two of our favorite clips from his album: "Mission Statement" - where Al takes on corporate buzzwords and corporate culture and "Word Crimes," a funny and surprisingly useful take on grammar rules.
