If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend spending the required three minutes to watch Nike’s new World Cup commercial. Yes, it’s really three minutes long, but it’s an epic and accurate representation of the excitement and emotions that will be felt all over the world during the upcoming tournament.
This will also explain the “dip in productivity” you may see from me and Nikos (my one employee who follows football as closely as I do) during the World Cup this summer. Others in our office will likely see some tension from us as we try to avoid online media and race home to watch what we’ve TIVO’d that day.
All this may sound a little crazy, but studies show that global productivity drops about 1% during the month-long World Cup. You may not see all that hub-bub here in the United States, but that’s the way it is in the rest of the world, believe it or not.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Nike commercial, and I hope you also get to enjoy watching the World Cup later this summer.
Dedicated to Your Continued Success,
P.S. Though the World Cup is a HUGE event that I’m very much looking forward to, you probably won’t really see a “dip” in our productivity here at MCC. We’re still dedicated to providing America’s business owners with Smarter commercial property financing, and you can count on me and my team of Experts to do so . . . even during the World Cup.
P.P.S. We just came close to breaking our company record for loan volume in a four-month period with over $46MM in total project costs financed from January through April. So don’t let anyone tell you that lenders aren’t lending these days . . . because WE ARE!
