Hermey_1 Check out today’s episode of the Escape from Cubicle Nation Podcast:

Proud member of the Island of Misfit Toys.

It ran 7 minutes 23 seconds this time … still enough to steal a break at work.

Here is what is covered:

Do you often feel like the oddball in your family, your job or your profession?

Drawing on inspiration from the "Island of the Misfit Toys" from the 1964 classic movie Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, I outline ways to:


  1. Celebrate your unique quirks, differences and personal history
  2. Tie them in with needs in your market
  3. Be proud of the misfit you are and reflect it in an authentic and kickass brand!

Pictured here is Hermey, the elf who wants to be a dentist, the original disgruntled employee.

For those that are fans of the movie, I found a really fun link with some of the back story of the characters and how it was made:  Rudolf:  Behind the Scenes

    Nice podcast Pamela. I’m a software engineer and I love Oprah! Especially now that she and her friends are on XM radio. I listen all the time. 🙂
