I admit it…I often blur the line between business and personal. Always have, and by design, considering the tagline on my business card that I came up with when I started the company: Professional without being impersonal. Personal without being unprofessional. It may not always be the best strategy, but I believe work is more enjoyable […]

The Minimum Wage Debate and the Little Secret…

9 February 2016

2 Comments

There’s a little secret about the minimum wage that neither side seems to be talking about. I’m not delving into the debate itself–I believe it should be between the employee and the employer, and that benefits should stay benefits, rather that requirements. But all that aside… Have you noticed, as the movement has spread across […]

Words Matter…

  I’ve been seeking counsel about a particular matter (on work side of things), and part of one of the replies meant so much to me: …but rather that we just keep positive about what we do and try to be as straight forward and honest in every way-which you’ve always done. Those words were […]

7 August 2013

Thinking a lot about leadership this morning, and not in the strange, over-generalized, esoteric way it often is discussed.

  Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Galatians 6:7 Confession: when I’m wronged, I have a great desire to make it known and to right the wrong. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in that. But back a bit…in 2005, to be exact…as just one example…there was […]

We bought our first Kindle (a Kindle Touch) for my oldest daughter for her birthday last year. We then got two others (the basic Kindle) for JoAnn and Sammy for school. We’ve had all kinds of issues with wireless on, now, all of them. The Touch was even replaced, and over a couple different times, […]

This past week has been a difficult one. The storm that came through the area hurt badly… The storm itself, with the snow and ice…it was fun at first. But then came the falling trees and limbs, the loss of power and heat, and being fairly stranded in our little area.  Was not so much […]

I’ve never really thought of myself as an entrepreneur before, until this week. Despite being self-employed, that term always had a negative connotation to me.
