21 Quotes On Life and Love From Your Favorite Female Celebrities

1. Amy Adams on Time in Your Twenties

“Thirty was a big deal for me. It was the age where I reevaluated everything – how I approached life and how I thought about myself. When I look at my 20s, or when I look at any period in my life, I think about how much time I’ve wasted trying to find the right man. It’s like, if I could go back and do it again, I would have taken guitar lessons or something. I would have put my energy into something that paid off in the end, instead of trying to improve myself for men. Oh, the time and the energy, trying to impress somebody who was actually a big jerk.”

Frozen in Time: Futurama Season 10 Finale Shows How to Spend an Ideal Eternity

I just recently watched the Season 10 finale of Futurama. While I am not a die hard fan of the show, I do watch it from time to time for the satire and occasional laugh-out-loud moment. Smart writing and great comic delivery make it a futuristic, grown-up version of The Simpsons.

I think Futurama surprised viewers with this romantic sci-fi twist when they showed what two people in love, Fry and Leela, would do if time were to freeze.

What The Princess Bride Taught Me about Creating Universally Loved Content

We’ve all been asked some head-scratchers during an interview at one point or another.

Q: What would you do on your first day if no one was here?

Q: If you were to give a TEDTalk, what would the subject be?

Q: What’s the worst road trip you’ve ever taken?

These are all random questions I have been asked during an interview. And while  researching the product and absorbing a company’s origin story the night before could be of some use,  there are just some questions you can’t prep for.

A question more random than Charlie Sheen’s affinity for Tiger Blood.

Here is the question I was asked:

What 80’s movie crushes can teach marketers about customer loyalty

Customer loyalty is the holy grail marketers have been seeking for years. Loyalty programs have become a means by which companies have attempted to gain this loyalty.

“Buy one, get another one half off.”

“Would you like to join our loyalty program and get 10% off your purchase today?”

Just because a customer joins a loyalty program, doesn’t mean they are loyal to you. Brands use the information derived from these programs to track user behavior and reward them based on previous purchases. And that tailored, personalized experience showing that you care, makes them care and gets you loyalty.
