Let’s try to appeal to your Right Brain this week, and free your analytical Left Brain to mull over more laser-beam Gonzo insight another day.
Keep in mind, love is in the air here at Gonzo Central. Even more than usual. On top of the giddy mutual admiration always hovering throughout our rose-colored marble hallways, the office remains abuzz with the recent wedding of one of our compatriots, Eric Weikart. We’re all delirious with serious, head-swimming LOVE.
And that feeling is something that the purveyors of GonzoBanker feel a social responsibility to bottle and share with our loyal Readership. Gonzo is nearly 8,000 subscribers strong, more like 15,000 total readers after the newsletter gets excitedly forwarded across the industry.

No rules or caste-based matchmaking here, GonzoDaters. We’ll set up know-it-all consultants with cufflinked vendors, rain-making commercial lenders with the most pragmatic of operations bores, nose ring-wearing programmers with conservative (but secretly freaky) auditors; heck, we might even arrange a date between a CEO and an administrative assistant. OK, maybe that last one’s been done. Get out your #2 pencils and get busy………

At GonzoBanker, we sincerely hope that this week we have left your mind open and eager to jump into the planning fray, poised to answer the age-old strategic planning question propounded by renowned expert, Ronnie James Dio:
“In the heat and the rain
With whips and chains
To see him fly
So many die……
Just to see him fly
But don’t know why
Now where do we go?”
I swear I’ll resume my meds next week.
