Last video date until the fall.

Marty Jenoff of Focal Point Productions and I are offering our last video shoot of the spring (we’ll be on hiatus in the summer), so if you’ve been procrastinating about getting a professional video done for your website and web marketing, now is the time to get it done at our amazingly low price of […]

Welcome Spike!

I am always impressed how bountiful the universe is.  I have loved working with Sheila Brown for the last five years or so, supporting the clients of our website builder, but Sheila has decided she needs to focus on her full-time work and so she “gifted” me her friend Spike.  Spike Dolomite Ward is a […]

I love my work!

Since the beginning of the year, I have been working on such a wide variety of fascinating projects, people and businesses.  Even just the “exploratory coaching calls” have been stimulating and intriguing, giving some off-the-cuff ideas and reactions to entrepreneurs who are stuck.  Here’s a smattering of what I’ve been up to:  I coached a […]

Have you read the Steve Jobs biography?

I’m about 3/4 of the way through the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs.  Have you read it?  It is completely absorbing and has had my mind spinning on a whole bunch of different levels.  I like to think of myself as a big-picture person who can handle ideas and creative people in productive ways.  […]

Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of worthy quotes.  Ralph Waldo Emerson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, there are any number of really intelligent, accomplished people whose words are worth noting.  But I am really tired of the trend that turn quotes and inspirational sayings and mottos into little images with […]

What Makes An Ideal Client?

I am working on several Powerpoints that I’ll be presenting in upcoming weeks and the topic of Ideal Client keeps coming up.  (If you don’t know who your Ideal Client is, you can’t shape an effective marketing message or strategy!) So I’m trying to come up with the criteria I use to define what makes […]

Thank You Organizers!

I was honored to be one of the presenters at the NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) conference in Baltimore yesterday.  My topic:  Making Money Beyond The Billable Hour.  It was so gratifying to see so many of the organizers I had met in previous presentations (including national in Columbus in 2010 and MARCPO as […]
