    Who is your Ogie? Getting to know your competition

    Let’s talk about competition. For the Chiefs there was no competitor more feared than that of Ogie Ogilthorpe.

    Lolly and Mooner chat about five things you need to do to focus on your competition while sharing some laughs about Ogie the competitor.

    Identify your competitors. Gather information about your main competitors. Analyze the competitions strengths and weaknesses. Talk to your competitors directly (buy you a soda after the game?). Identify your competitive advantage.

    Top Cheddar Episode #15 - Jason Strudwick Memorial Cup champ, 17 year pro, radio personality and hockey business entrepreneur.

    Jason Strudwick joined Lolly and Mooner this week. The 2 time Memorial Cup champion with the Kamloops Blazers brought some great stories about his time there and how it set the stage for a 17 year pro career that took him from the Islanders, Canucks, Blackhawks, Rangers and eventually back to his hometown with the Edmonton Oilers.

    The greatest NHL shootout goal of all time? We think that Jason has the answer. 

    He also shared his stories about how he worked (really hard) to open up opportunities into the world of television and radio and also shared details about his newest business venture involving virtual training for hockey. https://www.tkhockey.ca/
