My blogging rate has slackened a bit since I started writing weekly for the Financial Pot, and since the advent of Twitter. (Which is blogging for people who have no time to blog. Or to read blogs.)
Nonetheless, I remain committed to this blog, and I thank you for making me part of your entrepreneurial journey.
And now, the post.
My column this week in the Financial Post profiles a company that I think represents the best value proposition in Canadian retailing: M&M Meat Shops.
I believe that the companies that rigorously upgrade their value propositions are the firms that will best survive the current downturn, and dominate the weak and selective recovery that’s coming next.
Some of my speeches over the past year have referred to M&M as a textbook example of how a company can create multiple types of value for its customers. So last month I went to Waterloo to see how the principals of M&M create that value - and what they are doing to build their business now.
The resulting story is positive and, I hope, meaty.
