New Years Resolutions? Do I Dare?

I can’t tell you whether you should or shouldn’t make resolutions. I can only tell you why I think it’s important for me.  But as I was inspired by this newsletter from Start-Up Digest about making resolutions and this one from Forbes that speaks to why we shouldn’t.   I decided to write my own take on … Continue reading

REBLOG: Did Your Winner Scare You Into Voting? When Is It Ok To Use Fear Marketing?

Most of us have probably already heard, read, or repeated the popular phrase “sex sells”. It’s a reasonable claim to support given that most humans we know are intuitively triggered by it.

Why I Love My Interns and Why Every Small Business Needs a Few

More than the possibility of molding college students into the next generation of professionals. More than the knowledge that projects that have been on the back burner can get new lives.

The Perfect Day

Like most entrepreneurs I started my company with dreams and goals.  I imagined what it would be like to get up and start working.
