Benchmark 5: Things Kitchen Nightmares Teaches Us About Business

May 02 2013, 06:00 AM by

Gordon Ramsay knows food...probably. I’ve never eaten at any of his restaurants. He also knows good television. That I do know for sure. I enjoy Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen and Hotel Hell. Ramsay is really just a great TV character and an excellent host for those shows. I recently discovered the UK version of Kitchen Nightmares on Netflix and have been enjoying the uncensored Ramsay quite a bit. Watching these shows, I know I’m glad I’m not in the restaurant business. I’ve also learned enough to share these Benchmark 5: Things Kitchen Nightmares Teaches Us About Business.

MSN recently coined this term to describe legitimate newsletters and emails that a recipient just doesn’t care to receive. Shortly after defining the word, Microsoft launched an all-out attack on Graymail, and it will likely change the face of email marketing forever.
