Go Woke. Go Broke. It happens every time.

"Get Woke, Go Broke" (aka "Go Woke. Go Broke.") is a phrase coined by the internationally bestselling author John Ringo to express the opinion that when organizations “get woke” to politically correct actions, those same actions usually result in a massive loss of income. There are a LOT, and I mean a LOT, of companies that have fallen into this trap and yet they proliferate ad nauseum. In this episode, I share several examples of a lesson that some companies are refusing to learn. Enjoy and pass it on! Please and thank you in advance.
