While Price-Waterhouse looks for a new envelope hander-outer, we’ll entertain the masses with some dazzling links:
The Best Picture snafu wasn’t the only blunder on Sunday night’s Oscar telecast.
Forget La La Land and Moonlight. What were the WORST movies of the year?
Speaking of award screw-ups, Ryan has been named the Alumnus of the Year at his community college.
Here are the eight self-assessment exercises Tim & Ryan discuss in this episode:
1. Draw a treasure map with a little x, a big x, a dotted line between them, and perhaps a palm tree.
2. Describe the Little X.
3. Describe the Big X.
4. When you achieve the Big X, what does that mean to you personally? (Thank you, Stephen Semple!)
5. How long is the dotted line between the Little X and the Big X?
6. Explain why you believe you can reach the Big X.
7. Describe everything that’s in your way.
8. When you go back home, I want you to say, “Wow, I got exactly what I came for!” What is that thing, specifically, you came for?
*Tim is Warren. Ryan is Faye. But that goes without saying, right?
Our Grammy Award-worthy theme music was conceived and composed by the great Matt Linsin at 8th Nerve Productions.

ABOUT THE FUNNY BUSINESS PODCAST
Tim Miles and Ryan Patrick use their combined 40+ years experience working with family businesses to share stories, offer advice, and cut through the buzzword-saturated clutter of marketing and management advice.
Part Dave Barry and Part Dave Ramsey, these two guys look at the world—and the world of business—a little bit differently (and a little bit irreverently), and they’ve helped hundreds of businesses and thousands of people communicate more powerfully as a result.
