Bob Chandler and Bigfoot: A Monster Example of “Niche Creation”

The Solopreneur Life

When Chandler began smashing cars as part of Bigfoot’s routine, the monster-truck phenomenon was born. In the early 1980s, a fledgling sports television network in search of programming — ESPN — began broadcasting monster-truck events. Monster-truck competitions quickly grew into a multimillion-dollar industry. And Chandler’s legend will live on, as he was inducted into the Monster Truck Hall of Fame’s first class of honorees, in 2011.

Is the Green-Eyed Monster in Your Cubicle?

On The Job

The green-eyed monster now rears itself not on the playground, but in the cubicle. When I was in grade school, every year I had to put up with someone I'll call "Mary" in my classes. I never liked her, because her hair was longer than mine, she dressed better than I did and she was much prettier. Yet, every year -- from kindergarten until sixth grade -- I had her in every class. Some day the jealousy I felt when she showed up in a new hair bow with a pretty dress made me seethe.

If you're a typical American, at least one of these things brings out your competitive side. Go on, admit it. Your car was chosen because it was something you could show off to your friends.
