Innovation, Creativity and My McCippah

Last month on my company blog I wrote about the power of a creative idea matched with a little innovation and a lot of entrepreneurial effort. The creative effort I highlighted resulted in, a site that sells political yarmulkes or kippahs. Their flagship products are the Obamica and the McCippah. They also have a line of kippahs for the prospective first ladies.

I know the founder of this company, Shmuly Tennenhaus, and can tell you he is incredibly creative, innovative and funny.  Since I had expressed so much enthusiasm about his business idea and blogged about it, he offered to send me a McCippah. I thankfully accepted and have been spotted wearing it on quite a few occasions since receiving it last week.

Tennenhaus was also our guest on the weekly Red Hat Blue Hat podcast of which I am a regular commentator. This week’s podcast is entitled John McCain vs. Barack Obama: Battle of the Kippahs and is much more light-hearted than usual. Interestingly, Tennenhaus reveals which kippah is selling better (the answer might surprise you).

My point of this post is to share some fluffy news on a more personal level. I hope it encourages people to pursue their innovations and aim to be upwardly mobile. Innovation, creativity and hard work can take you all the way to the top.

Shmuly, you may need to make a “bald guys edition” kippah so it can cover up more of the marble top.

Love the new theme, Mike. The pics are great! I think the McCippah does a great job covering the dome. 🙂
