In January I told my salespeople if they exceeded their quota by 33% I'd dye my hair the color of their choice. It was an incredible long shot. A totally safe bet. About mid-March their confidence was such that I finally decided to tell my wife about this great idea.

"You promised what?"

"Well it was a long shot honey. They've never ..."

"Have you lost your mind. Dress silly. Do anything. But don't screw up your hair!"

Then I got a series of lectures about hair chemistry and sure enough I learned alot.

But a bet is a bet.

Here's what I ended up looking like.

I'm just doing my personal best to have Austin live up to its motto.
