Just about every day, I start my morning off with a blog. The writing and distribution of it take on average 45 minutes. It's a great way of waking the body up before the gym...and postponing the list of a million projects I have to get done throughout the day. Some people would consider it a was...
"Don't send out that press release, Reyes. I'm telling you. It's a royally bad idea." Usually, when a friend offers advice like this, it's a good idea to take it. But that wouldn't be outrageous marketing, now would it? Society is too damn politically correct these days. Everyone is afraid of the...
Are you the person that I'm going to trust to run this department? To take over my brand? To oversee my staff? Tell me why. They are the questions we seem to be hearing more and more frequently these days. We're not "recruiters". Yet we've somehow ended up helping our clients fill more than 50 p...

Don’t you want to paint your walls without worrying about the landlord?   My very young first-time home buyer who is currently in the Naval service, closed his home last Thursday. He took a one-week vacation to attend this momentous day. He flew from Virginia a day before the closing and is now b...
Erick called me two weeks ago. You don't know him, but you should. He's one of the quiet giants out there helping take over the world with drones. So, I'm hoping you'll give me access to the video," he said. "You know - THE video. He was talking about the piece that brought one of our clients int...

The entire landscape of the U.S. job market is about to change. In fact, the shift has already begun. And it's going to simultaneously put a LOT of people out of work...while creating countless opportunities for others. We see it in the TRUE unemployment numbers, as courageously highlighted by Ga...
Lots of people like to dip their pen in company ink. Part of the thrill is keeping it on the down-low. It’s a little office supply room secret between you and little Mary. It’s naughty. It’s dirty. It’s EXCITING. But as it turns out, you may want to leave an ink trail. Business Insider put togeth...

Restaurants. Car dealerships. Bars. Retail shops. Museums. Chances are - if you own a business, you're on Yelp - whether you know it like it or not. Which also means that chances are good you've suffered "review extortion". We'll get to the "dining with your lawyer" part of this article in a seco...

A couple of weeks ago, my brother was driving down the highway when he noticed a decked out truck loaded with LED lights.  The vehicle wrap indicated that the truck belonged to a company specializing in the lights.  The wrap talked all about how technologically advanced the company was. My brothe...
It's one thing for a job candidate to tell the interviewer how amazing they are. It's another thing for that candidate to be endorsed by a third party.

"I love you." Three simple words.  Without them, relationships fall apart. But the human language is sometimes best shown - not spoken. And in an age where we can market to anyone anywhere in the world...it leaves us with a simple and yet highly complex problem: how do you say "I love you" in cus...
It's causing the death of a generation. Or at least the communication of the millennial generation. And we're all becoming infected. My wife is trying to save our family. She's identified an antidote. It's called "20 minutes of no technology during dinner". If my symptoms are particularly bad, sh...
Doctors will tell you that pizza slowly kills you. But in this case, it may have lead to a very quick death for a car dealership in Westport.. You may have already heard the story. But you may not have realized the implications. Here's what you might have missed. The video, which was posted to Yo...
I'll never forget the line growing up. "Say hi to grandma and grandpa.  But don't forget - it's long distance!"

First of all - have you met Manny Rivera yet?   The guy is a technical genius, as evidenced in his latest blog here.  Manny is the biggest technical geek I've ever met.  And I love him for i...
I'm sitting in Starbucks enjoying some coffee last week and trying to get a few reports done...and there are two guys in their mid-20's having a conversation next to me.
