I won’t lie, there’s been a lot of hard work and a genuine willingness to learn at every level: enthusiasm, dedication and perhaps some luck along the way somewhere.I’m married with three sons and I have two grown-up children from my first marriage.
I spend most of my time at our head office in Leeds, in stores, or down in London.
It’s also important to keep it simple — we’re trying to sell stuff and I have to make sure it appeals.
As Steve Jobs said, it’s easy to over-complicate things, so if I sit in a room and can’t decipher what is being said because of a tonne of buzzwords, it’s my aim to get the teams to keep it simple and customer-focused. I never left school saying I wanted to work in food retail — I actually wan ted to be a professional footballer or the next Paul Weller — and became a trader instead.
I combine speaking with my wife and kids with the working day — technology has changed everything, making it a lot easier.
Perhaps the only thing left to invent is the time machine.
I’m optimistic and never thought of things like that. but they never got me down and I never over-analysed them.
One lesson I did learn was to pick my battles carefully — when I was a young trader I misunderstood the job and blundered into a few battles with suppliers whose advice I should really have been listening to and I quickly learned that wasn’t the best way to do business.
While this book is very entertaining and may be interesting to those who are huge fans of the show, it is also heard to break away from the constant narcissism and "I'm the best" attitude of Barry Williams (aka Greg Brady, one of the most annoying kids in tv show history). (I'm sure I'm the target audience of the original broadcast, because I'm too old to remember the actor's name.) [Note added January 15th, 2007: A friend has reminded me that it was Robert Reed who played Mr. I'm amazed I forgot.] With the making of each episode he [Reed] would argue point by point with Sherwood Schwartz about the script.
I feel like Barry Williams was constantly overshadowing the other members of the cast with himself. (Schwartz was the show's creator, whose earlier landmark sitcom, GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, also had a theme song setting up the premise of an entire series.)Like STAR TREK, THE BRADY BUNCH, as stuck in time as it is, does NOT, somehow, look dated. Also like STAR TREK, it became a much bigger hit in syndication.
I think people who compartmentalise their personal and private lives are often unhappy with one or the other of them.
I love what I’m doing and if it’s not fun and interesting, then I stop doing it.
Also, what flipping sucks is that 50% of the book is just back to back lists of the episodes and their plot lines. In the early 90’s, I like so many others of my generation, went on a huge 70’s pop culture nostalgia fest, the centerpiece of which was The Brady Bunch, a ridiculously idealized and out of touch family sitcom even in its heyday, which also happened to be hugely entertaining (well, I thought so).
