If you learned anything from Mother's Day this last weekend, don't put off choosing a gift at the last minute for Father's Day 2015. 

The +Remarkable Dads team did a great job of building a list of gifts in tons of categories and price ranges in this post. Check it out.

Being a “Jack of All Trades” isn’t without its own obstacles, but it does have its advantages, particularly within the digital marketing industry. If you don’t believe me, here’s why digital marketers should strive to be a “Jack of All Trades” rather than a master of one area.
"Jack of All Trades" doesn't have to be a bad thing. In fact, it's very useful in digital marketing. Find out why.

Story
Tagline
Building B² Interactive Digital Marketing Agency Services, Growing Storage.com, the premier place to find self storage online
Introduction
After many years of off and on building an idea born more than a decade ago I decided it was time to start working on something new.  Still working with the last project but my eye is on the future with www.b2interactive.com.  Our first year flew by.  We have built a solid web presence for dozens of businesses in Omaha.  We also brought together 3 great national self storage websites, Storage.com, USstoragesearch.com and StorageUnit.com, all to be operated by B² Interactive in Omaha, NE.  

B² Interactive is a website development and internet marketing firm founded in 2012 by Brandon Taylor and I.  We build fantastic websites for Omaha businesses, yes.  Just as importantly we work to make sure they are found.  I head up our internet marketing and business development side of our company.  

B² Interactive acquired Hurrdat Social Media in Lincoln, NE in July of 2014 to grow our team with the best in social media marketing while expanding our footprint into Lincoln.
 
3 Daughters, 1 Son all between the ages of 6 months & 15 years.  An incredibly supportive wife who allows me to work at building what we are.
 
I have been involved with the development of storage related websites since building the first shop and compare self storage website nearly 15 years ago.  That grew up into the largest website and it is something we operate again.  Things really do tend to circle around in business.
 
Been working for the last 15+ years in various business development roles including website development and real estate development (mixed use, multi-family, hospitality, municipal).
 
Love travelling with my wife, throwing darts with my brothers and being perpetually disappointed in the various sports teams I follow (Huskers, Blue Devils, Lakers, Yankees).
 
Also, I possess a fantasy football curse similar to the Madden curse.  For the last 8 years a minimum of 2 out of my first 3 picks has had a season ending injury within the first 2 weeks of the season.  We may start an NFL players insurance fund where for a small fee any player can ensure that they will not be picked by me, thus protecting them from the Hipsher fantasy football curse.
Bragging rights
We not only survived first year of tech start-up life but flourished. Things are looking really good for B² Interactive and Storage.com

Dr. Vondra was very attentive to my needs. I have a severe dentist-aversion problem that he helped to quell. Service was quick and the entire staff was very friendly. Everything that I needed, my options and post treatment expectations were fully and clearly explained by Dr. Vondra.
