Birth of a VanBot


Super Action League member Lee Hills created this nifty “VanBot” to help people choose the best style camper van suited to their intended use (weekend warrior couples vs. off-the-grid camping family, etc.). Lee’s VanBot has humor, personality, and delivers real value for people researching camper vans. Any auto dealership that sells vans could have built […]

Your Course Schedule

Simple question: How many business books and online courses did you invest in last year with the intent of learning something new or enhancing existing knowledge? Tough question: How many of those books and courses did you complete? Tougher question: How much of the new knowledge you gained did you actually put into action? Toughest […]

Minimally Minimalist (or how to get rid of 400 books as slowly as possible)

Photo Apr 28, 8 52 05 AM

I have an addiction… Books. I can’t help myself. When I was growing up, books were the one thing my family always worked into the budget no matter how tight our finances might be. And not just trips to the library to participate in Summer Reading programs and borrow more books than we could carry, (which I absolutely […]

Cause, Effect, Squeaky Wheels, and Newspapers


I recently read couple of articles about the Newspaper industry and the online industry which, while not overtly interconnected, mesh together so well to relate a story-behind-the-story, I can’t help but think of a pithy spin on old cliche that my grandmother one said to me: “The squeaky wheel may get the grease, but sometimes […]

Fires and Flames

Who lights your fire?

Who lights your fire? Who fans your flames? Some people can fire you up, but you also need people who can turn up the heat and help push you to get things done. You likely have one or two people who inspire you to think big thoughts and explore big concepts. A lucky few of you have […]

Are You Building a Wall or a Bridge?


The conversation regarding the building of a certain wall (and who will pay for said wall) is certainly a hot topic in the news these days, but this article is about more building metaphorical walls (and bridges) rather than physical (or political) ones. Rather than reading these words and thinking about national borders or politicians with tiny […]

Podcasts Running Through My Mind

Running Through My Mind Podcast

I decided to jump in and launch a podcast this week. Over the last 6-12 months I’d been trying to recruit a few business associates, past project partners, even my spouse to commit to creating and co-hosting an ongoing podcast program, but I couldn’t get any takers. They were all interested, but no one seemed to want […]

Loud and Clear

A crying baby is loud, but not very clear.

Some people and brands (and politicians) are quite loud, but their message isn’t communicated with clarity. Some concepts are crystal clear, but require amplification in order to be heard by the people who would be most interested in obtaining additional information about the subject. Loud isn’t necessarily bad, but neither is it better. Volume without […]

Independence Days


Yesterday everyone got together to grill meat, drink beer, and launch glittery explosives into the sky; all in the name of Independence Day. But the real fireworks come EVERY day when you take advantage of your freedom to think independent thoughts and take independent actions. It’s be scary to be out there all alone. There […]
