Joe Malarkey is hilarious, tongue-in-cheek “Choose to Lose” program suggests that by lowering your expectations, you actually increase your chances of coming out ahead! Nonsense? You bet!
But Joe ties it all together with an important message: You can’t let the chance of failure prevent you from taking the steps to succeed. Virtually no one knows more about the pitfalls, mistakes, honest errors, lapses in judgement and lethal mistakes of not just one industry, but many. And Joe doesn’t speak of those failures from a hypothetical viewpoint. He has been there in the trenches, falling on the sword, taking the heat, paying the price and finally moving on to another endeavor. That kind of experience can’t be purchased, it can only be endured. Joe’s experience runs the gamut of business.
He has run small businesses that started as big businesses. He has been an industry spokesman when silence would have been the better choice. And through it all, Joe has one point of pride, one gleaming hook, from which to hang his coat of experience: “I’ve never been indicted!”
As an entrepreneur, he was among the first to recognize the emerging Pacific Rim economy when he opened his short-lived chain of tall men’s clothing stores in Japan. His time spent in the advertising field resulted in many tremendous near successes such as his campaign for the Alternative Meat Association, “Spam, the other, other white meat!” He served with great pride prior to his removal from the board of Crockett, our largest manufacturer of slide rules. While his “why mess with the calculator when slide rules are so easy to use” philosophy did not result in the industry turn around hoped for.
Joe is widely credited with obtaining a bankruptcy ruling that saved many employees their unemployment benefits. These are but a few highpoints in a career full of easy-to-climb peaks and expansive valleys.
He is the perfect opening or closing speaker for a convention. He is a popular choice for awards banquets and after-dinner entertainment. Joe Malarkey lifts them up and revitalizes them. Joe Malarkey has presented to groups as small as 25 and as large as 4000. He has spoken to all levels of employees, and all types of associations.
aka George Campbell is a 10-year veteran of professional comedy and has been called the funniest and freshest entertainer in America. He has appeared on Arts & Entertainment and Showtime cable networks and was voted champion at the national finals at the Improv. He has also contributed material to Jay Leno and The Tonight Show.
Performing “clean comedy” at hundreds of association and convention gatherings, he can best be described as a man very excited about some extremely bad ideas. Billing himself as “Joe Malarkey, The Worst Motivational Speaker in America!,” he touches on affirmations, goal setting, subliminal tapes, relationship skills, and dress-for-success techniques. Each subject is treated to Joe’s upside-down “Choose to Lose” approach! Filled with laughter, audiences leave his presentations charged, energetic, and enthusiastic.
Joe Malarkey’s “Choose to Lose” system was just what the doctor ordered. It was a great evening! It’s true…. laughing cures stress.
