Sugar is highly addictive. Some have said it’s more addictive than cocaine. Sugar is also strongly implicated in numerous scientific studies covering a wide range of diseases from high blood pressure to cancer and especially diabetes.
If everyone quit drinking alcoholic beverages, twenty million starving people could be fed on the grain saved.
There’s power in names. What would happen if you come up with a catchy name for your product or service?
7-Up was originally called Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda when it was invented in 1929. The 7 is for the original size – 7 ounces – and the Up was for “bottoms up.”
The first advertising slogan for 7-Up was, “It takes the ouch out of grouch.”
That slogan probably didn’t help sales much, but the experiment was valid. Keep trying new things and don’t be surprised if you have a sudden breakthrough.
