Meet Shahid Khan. He’s a billionaire and owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also has a mustache. Coincidence? I don’t think so. I’d give him my money.
James Murdoch, Rupert’s son, was all set to take over his dad’s empire, that is until he got caught hacking phones.
Who will be the new heir? COO Chase Carey. Can you guess why?
Meet Daniel Yates, CEO of OPOWER, a startup company in Arlington, Virginia trying to change the way we use power by providing Energy Efficiency and Smart Grid applications that let you see the way you use your power.
About his mustache he said he grew it as a gag, but now he likes it. This is a common trend amongst mustache dabblers. Once you grow one, you can’t go back.
OPOWER even has a contest every year called Cinco de Mustache.
Dan was probably inspired to grow a mustache on his 27,000 mile DRIVE from ALASKA to ARGENTINA. No doubt he saw into some Gouchos on the Pampas with some serious bigotes.
A funny thing about mustaches is that they inspire mustaches in others. I was the only one to have a mustache at my day job (Stachist is not my day job—disappointing, I know) and now, there’s a whole board room full of business staches. Come Movember, we’re gonna have quite a competitive team.
If you’re looking for a business edge, I recommend growing a mustache. It’s common knowledge that people with facial hair make more money.

I would highly recommend you buy anything on TV that you see endorsed by anyone sporting a mustache. To that end, I just called up Farmers’ Insurance, and in a mustache induced fit of spontaneity, ordered car insurance, life insurance, pet insurance, house insurance, and hand insurance (we’re not like those face and body models- we have minds of our own).
In retrospect, these purchases don’t make much sense, as I don’t have a car, a house, a pet, and quite possibly, a life. Damn you Farmers’ and your persuasive use of a mustachioed spokesperson!
