Swimming in a Sea of Data: John James of Acumen Brands

November 24, 2014

In case you missed it, you won't want to miss this week's edition of Swimming in a Sea of Data, part of 8th & Walton's Saturday Morning Meeting show,  with IA adviser Jeff Amerine.

Jeff welcomes back Dr. John James of IA client firm Acumen Brands. Plus, Saturday Morning Meeting features IA clients DataRank and Field Agent.

Good stuff, people. Must see stuff.

Acumen, of course, has been called the fourth horseman of the NWA business landscape behind Walmart, Tyson and JB Hunt. It's raised $101 million in the last four years and the e-commerce giant (Country Outfitter and Scrub Shopper are examples) is well on its way to becoming a $1B play, per James' goal.

(Both John, the Doctorpreneur, and Jeff, the purveyor of Techpreneurship, are former contributors to this space.)

Jeff's Swimming segment begins at about the 2:30 mark. This week's show includes DataRank's Lauren Hayes and Matthew Seubert, who share the holiday's most popular products, and Field Agent's Henry Ho provides an "epic Black Friday countdown."

Black Friday....Thanksgiving's this week, folks. 

As always, good stuff.  Saturday Morning Meeting airs on KNWA in northwest Arkansas Saturday mornings at 6:30, on the 8th & Walton YouTube channel, and of course, right here in the INOV8 blog.

Have a happy Thaksgiving, soak in the data, and enjoy:
