In The Tipping Point, New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell looks at why major changes in society happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a few fare-beaters and graffiti artists fuel a subway crime wave, or a satisfied customer fill the empty tables of a new restaurant. These are social epidemics, and the moment when they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping Point.

Why do some products get more word of mouth than others? Why does some online content go viral? Word of mouth makes products, ideas, and behaviors catch on.

Whether you operate a neighborhood restaurant, a corporation with hundreds of employees, or are running for a local office for the first time, the steps that can help your product or idea become viral are the same.

As Gabriel Weinberg and Justin Mares learned from their own experiences, building a successful company is hard.

There is a strand of genius in each and every one of us. There is a song inside everybody's heart that the world has never had a chance to listen to and maybe, if nothing is done, will never get to be heard altogether. That is what the world sadly loses every single day when people accept the conditions they are living in by choosing not to lend an ear to the springs of ideas that incessantly visit them. Why have we allowed mediocrity to rule over us?
Every marketer tells a story. And if they do it right, we believe them. We believe that wine tastes better in a $20 glass than a $1 glass. We believe that an $80,000 Porsche Cayenne is vastly superior to a $36,000 VW Touareg, which is virtually the same car. We believe that $225 Pumas will make our feet feel better, and look cooler, than $20 no-names...and believing it makes it true.
