The folks at Keurig deserve a Nobel Prize (pick a category). I've had one for several years now, and I'm still more than happy. Can't say that about the rest of my technology.

If you know your business is going to be rendered irrelevant in a few years, why not invest in the future? Get off the fence or regret it.

Not to be outdone:
Facebook is getting into the virtual reality game in a deal that includes $400 million in cash and 23.1 million shares of Facebook common stock.

Is your process so rigid that it's costing you sales?

Do people really want the truth, or do they just want to buy into the idea of the truth?

Had a great conversation about #Detroit's rebound yesterday. It's becoming the Galt's Gulch for entrepreneurs. It's proving that hard work and optimism pay off.

Of all of the social media channels, G+ has to be the most positive and optimistic. No complaining, no dirty laundry, just good content and good people. #hadtoshare

Haley stepped-up to find me the right pre-owned vehicle, when others said it didn't exist. Bill Simmons emailed me high resolution images of the vehicle, as well as video descriptions. Best of all, the entire transaction was handled via phone, email, and FedEx. Was it a long drive to Virginia? Certainly. Was it worth it? Beyond a shadow of a doubt. If you are in the market for a new Toyota or a used vehicle (even muscle cars!), give the folks at Haley Toyota a shout. They'll make it worth your while.
