Sometimes you need to unplug to really see the light. Recently, I took up a challenge from +Daniel Newman to go dark for 24 hours and document the experience.

Head over to +Millennial CEO and see how it went.
Going Dark. That’s what some use to describe the idea of unplugging from all social media for an extended period of time. For many people in the power-user category of social media, it’s also a terrifying concept. I am by no means the most influential millennial poking around the social web, but I am definitely consumed

Is Sales Really About Money?

I wrote this article because I have strong opinions on the concept of sales. I feel that, over time, the whole concept of selling has been perverted and lost over time.

Like most things in life, the most important thing to do is understand the purpose and intent of actions.

Read this and let me know what you think. Am I way off?
The difference between “Goals” and “Results.” Why “Sales” is not really a bad word.

Are Kids Using Too Much Tech?

Well, +Gary Vaynerchuk says they aren't using enough, and I tend to agree.

Think about it, if we are trying to teach skills to our children that will benefit them in the future, then why would we not encourage more use of tech.

To bemoan the use of tech by our children is like discouraging teaching teenagers to drive in the early 1900s. You could have pulled study after study on how driving is more dangerous that walking or horse carriage, but it would have been ridiculous nonetheless.

Do your kids a favor and set them up for success.
I refuse to limit or restrict hours on a screen for my children.

+Gary Vaynerchuk always gives me a nice kick in the pants. This video illustrates what most of us are lacking when it comes to building business and successfully marketing.

Thanks Gary. I need these every once and a while!

"Get your hands dirty... do the work.. get experience."

Trying to make it in today's world, I always appreciate these strait-forward reminders from someone I admire and respect.

I think this is timeless advice that we would hear from our grandparents as well.

Who is really in control of your life?

I'm a strong believer that experiences are exactly what you make them. Nobody has power to make you feel or think anything. You are stronger than that.

You are the in the driver's seat!

A quick thought on our ability to make decisions

So, I really like Snapchat. It's probably because I'm a millennial, though.

Any thoughts on the platform? #socialmedia

Entrepreneurs Suck at Relationships

...and so does anyone else in an ownership/leadership role. I hate to admit that sometimes I'm guilty of focusing so much on my work that my wife takes a 2nd role. I know it's my weakness and I need to do better.

They say the first step is admitting there is a problem, right? 
It took me almost 40 years to figure out who I was and what drove my behaviors. Why did it take so long? Because I never took the time to figure it out sooner. But, this year, there was a moment. An event. Something that forced me to look deeper at what drove my actions and brought me happiness.I wish I had done it sooner.Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t too late. I still have plenty of time left (I think), I just wish I had known that figuring myse...

Sound advice for those of you in marketing, people only care about you if you care about them first. It's not about you, it's about them.

Thanks for leading by example +Gary Vaynerchuk!

Having worked with Katina Gordon, Melissa Hoeman and Julie Swartz, this is an amazing group of people. They are great at what they do and passionate about their work. Could ask for a better PR firm and they have helped us tremendously!

Working for a competitor in a neighboring market, we have referred to Bob and his wife on many occasions when we get calls out of our service area. As a family run franchise, I feel like they have a good heart and are in the business for the right reason.
