There’s no denying that Tom Morey  has a unique wisdom and outlook on most things in life. Long time Morey Boogie Art Director  Craig Libuse  inherited Tom’s rolodex cards. He wrote down things about running the business and filed them. New employees were asked to read them as an introduction to the company. He has some interesting insights into running a company.  Below is a photo of the actual rolodex cards.
