One of the few things in life that is incredibly powerful is video. The ability to use video in your marketing campaigns is a huge bonus and one you should try to incorporate. I was the biggest procrastinator when it came to video, because I was scared to death of it.Read More

When I first started out in business, I thought I would just blog and maybe put up a blurry picture or two of myself, actually it was a picture of my son and I was kind of behind him.Read More
Have you ever had the experience where you and some friends or colleagues were talking about ideas about how something could be better if you just… Maybe you went so far as to even build out a verbal template of what it would look like.

Years ago I was completely oblivious to the online world. I don’t mean 20 years ago, or before the Internet existed, I mean like 2013. I didn’t know you could take online courses that were any good, I didn’t realize you could date and marry people online. I don’t even think I knew about Facebook.

This past week my 4-year old son Matthew and I went over my parents house for dinner. Matthew chose not to eat dinner and even though he was warned he would not get dessert, he defiantly chose not to eat. A bold choice for a 4-year old, even when dessert is yummy homemade cupcakes.Read More
