    Luann, I wouldn’t Trust a word that is coming out of either of their mouths. They just want to use you. Walk away!

    The funny thing is.. All of those business names sound WAY better than BATUBS.

    .

    Will Luann fall for their snake oil?

    Well to be honest, Tiff As Nails was working until Luann’s “Pal,” Gruppenfuhrer Bernice Halper, shut it down.

    But Hey. Just tell the BATUB Crew that you’re NOT interested, Luann.

    And POINT then in the direction of Bernice, ;-)

    To be a success you have to come up with a product the customer really wants or else convince the customer (via advertising and more) that this is something they really want.

    They failed at both points.

    The meaning of BOFFO is extremely successful : sensational. I had to look it up. Luann is getting wiser and standing up to Bets and Tiffany. She knows they are full of bull. I hope she doesn’t change her mind because I want to see Luann mature.

    I like this crazy conversation. Luann tries to understand what Tiffany and Bets want to do and sees that they don’t have a clear, marketable, idea at all. Luann answer to everything they say using logic, but the two are too eager and don’t seem to really know that Beta tests are used to find the mistakes in an idea. Let’s hope Luann can calm them down. Maybe inviting them inside her house, making them drink some water and sit-down. Then, a reasonable discussion could begin.

    Well of course they know what they’re doing – they’re “business majors”. Just like Bernice is always saying she’s a “psyche major”. All of these arrogant college students seem to think they have enough knowledge to impact other people’s lives.

    Just have some fun and humor them Luann. Give really strange, bizarre, off the wall answers to their questions. They aren’t smart enough to make you agree to employ their results.

    Betts discontinued her social media brand to concentrate on her relationship with Gunther outside of her fans glare. “T’s” Tea failed because, although Roz grows spectacular tasting teas, they couldn’t stand up to Tiffany’s hype. Wasn’t “Tiff As Nails” some sort of fashion manicuring idea? I don’t recall why that failed?

    Bets and Tiff consider the brand to be essential to their cyber self image rather than content. Some influencers may become influenced by their followers in order to maintain their electronic ego. Luann is definitely not into all that.

    1. Ahem, Luann. Tiff didn’t just up and quit her nail thing. It was quite successful. Your power-tripping bestie Bernice, pulling rank as an RA, shut it down.

    2. “Tiffany and Bets are quitters” says the woman who has thrown in the towel at everything she’s tried at the first setback.

    There is one possibility still very much on the board.

    It was hard to miss the very pointed way it was shown that this started out with Tiffany coming home from work (late?) in the evening, with a very important branding assignment due more than ASAP.

    And we’ve seen Tiff galavanting around still in her work clothes. Pursuing a less than well thought out branding idea with a wacky concocted name…

    Will this all wind up with Tiff konked out at her laptop, then waking up from a dream?
