Dave, the owner and founder of The Ankenbrandt Group has his own language. He speaks and writes in quotes and short clips. Sometimes it’s a challenge to take his thoughts and get them written down in understandable English. It’s like his brain is going too fast to get it all on paper. I try to make it all work for TAGBit’s so I thought I’d give you a peak at how I transform his quotes and clips -
Below is copy he sent me for October’s TAGBit's and his column Ank’s Angle. This is what he sent me –“Fall is upon us and winter is coming – we need rain - and Halloween is right around the corner. There will be a tomorrow – sure wish that we had leaders in this good old US of A…Seems the problems just keep stacking up. Had a boss one time – if there was a problem you would had to come up with a solution. Back in the day when people had manners.. Maybe go back to those days….”
And this is what I turned it into – “Fall is upon us, winter is coming and Halloween is right around the corner. There will be a tomorrow, but I sure wish that we had leaders in this good old U.S. of A. It seems the problems just keep stacking up for our “leadership”. I had a boss at one time who taught me if there was a problem you would have to come up with a solution but that was back in the day when people had manners, good work ethics and respect. Maybe we should go back to those days….”
I’d leave it in the original form but then we get too many people calling us telling us we have typos and grammatical errors in our newsletter. There really is only so much explaining we can do so I change it but still try to capture the essence of Dave.
