I Met The Founder of Book It! And Here’s How It Started

When I first met Bud Gates at a dinner party in Kansas in 2017, I had no idea that he was someone who had changed my life — and many others. His weaponry: books and pizza.

As we chatted at the Wichita Art Museum after hours, which had been transformed into a private swank candlelit dinner venue, I learned that Gates helped create the Pizza Hut Book It! program.

The printed handwriting is so captivating and authentic.

Did you know?:

  • consumers spend an average of 30 minutes reading their mail each day
  • over 40% of people over the age of 65 do not use the internet AT ALL
  • 92% of millennials surveyed claimed that direct mail has influenced their buying decisions

QuickBridge Scam Credit Card

I was surprised to receive a piece of mail today saying “Your New Account Has Been Established” because I never signed up for this.

QuickBridge Funding appears to be doing predatory marketing to small business owners offering them a fake-looking credit card for their “working capital” offer of a loan up to $300,000. I am guessing this has very high-interest rates.
