Just An Idea


I recently noticed that whenever I share a new concept with someone (whether they are a client, long-time friend or new prospect), I tend to use the phrase “just an idea” either in the opening or closing of my message containing the idea I am sharing with them. I’ve decide to curb my use of the […]

Marketing Passion Blabstorm


Just the other night I had the chance to introduce my friend @marketingmiker (A.K.A. Mike Rudd) to Blab.im. It was the second time hosting my own Blab and Mike’s first time using the platform. You wouldn’t know it was Mike’s first time from the ease at which he participated in the live video chat event (it must […]

Five times it’s okay to be selfish


There are plenty of folks out there writing about the benefits and special place in heaven set aside for the most generous souls among us, but I firmly believe that (within certain qualifying criteria) it’s okay to be a little selfish. Sometimes a lot selfish. Here are five times that I identified where being selfish is perfectly […]

The Proactive Prepared Pessimist


There is nothing wrong with making a new project “live” and then finding things that went wrong/broke/didn’t work. You then correct the broken elements and re-launch, repeating as many times as necessary. Nothing would ever launch if people waited for every single element to be “perfect”, because there’s no such thing as perfect. However, you can dramatically reduce both the number […]

Lagniappe, Learning, and Louis Armstrong


Many students of many ages are all going “back to school” today. I wasn’t aware of it because I have any school age children, I knew it was happening because of all the back-to-school sales being promoted by stores and by all the Facebook posts of relief by my friends who do have school age children. […]

Typically the term overindulging has negative connotations. It’s too much food or too much drink. Too many trips to the all-you-can-eat buffet. Overindulging in this fashion leads to expanding your waistline and fattening your physique. If you overindulge a child you risk spoiling them. Many blame overindulging helicopter-parents for the entitled attitudes of millennials in the […]

Twitter is…


There was an interesting article published over on LinkedIn from Alan Wolk, a consultant to the television (traditional broadcast) industry. I added my own perspective to his article which asserted that Twitter isn’t a social network, but instead a broadcast network. In the post Alan likened Twitter to standing up in front of a crowd and giving a speech, […]

“Ordinary” means you’re doing it wrong


I love having conversations over a meal, but I hate the time it takes to prepare (and clean-up!), so I tend to dine out a lot in order to maximize my enjoyment of interesting table talk while minimizing the labor required to achieve it. As a result I have experienced some of the best and some of […]

Better Than


As many of you may be aware, this year I’ve committed to producing a single piece of content (Seth Godin calls it “making art”) every single day in the form of a hand-lettered yellow sticky note. If you’re interested, you can follow these efforts on my Instagram account. Last week I posted the Big Yellow Sticky you see embedded […]

The Awesome Door


Last week I saw the really cool video Dove released about their experiment in several parts of the world where they gave woman the choice to enter a store through two doors; one labeled “Average” and one labeled “Beautiful”.  It was an interesting (and somewhat sad) choice to watch women make for themselves, without any obvious outside influence. Was […]
