Video – A Requirement for Business

A picture is worth 1,000 words - we all know that one right? Taking that analogy up a level then, how many words is a video worth? Here is my Executive Summary for this post:   EVERY business needs video content to be successful in today's rapid-fire, short-attention-span, online world.   Disclaimer: I ...

Just Think

NOBODY THINKS ANYMORE! OK - that's a huge exaggeration, but I said it to make a point and grab your attention. I think the truth is that most, not all, people do not truly think, at least not often enough. OK yes, you have to think to survive (not really difficult thinking) and sure, there is some thinking involved in ...

I Love Small Business

I just want to go on record as saying: “I Love Small Businesses”. (I sure hope that doesn’t get me fired – or maybe even not hired someday.)
