Some athletes, actors, and politicians have something in common - they’ve sent inappropriate - even career ending text messages.

One of the first full-blown marketing efforts I directed was for an online software called Attentiv. Attentiv confronted the same obstacles that most startups and small businesses face. No one’s heard of you yet, there’s no brand equity or goodwill to leverage, and your website doesn’t show up in Google for any keywords. Essentially, Attentiv …

Cars are as essential to the James Bond mythos as are tuxedos, beautiful women, exotic locations and shaken (not stirred) vodka martinis. From Aston Martins to BMWs to Mustangs, Bond knows how to get somewhere in style. But it's not just the aesthetic that counts when it comes to cars for 007, ...

Handy quiz to make sure you pick the right car (or truck, or van) when the time comes to buy.

Introduction
I'm passionate about the web.  If I'm not working on a project, I'm tinkering or testing or reading other people's research and case studies.  I love online reputation management because it is one of the ultimate online challenges.  I love search engine optimization because I'm competing against other smart people, head-to-head, for top rankings.  I love social media because of the connections (and also because it can be fun manipulating it in your favor).  I love this stuff...

I have 2 daughters and another one on the way. If I survive being outnumbered 4-to-1 by the ladies in my home, that will be something to brag about.

We're so happy with the blinds and the whole sales and installation process. From being greeted warmly the first time we walked in, all the way through the super helpful installation guy, the process was smooth and seamless. We upgraded the blinds in our master bathroom, and they look great. I mentioned we were going to move the old blinds into the garage and the installation guy gave us great tips to ensure it worked well for us there.

Love this new Whole Foods. Really high quality products, lots of local options to choose from, and everything I've had from the food bars so far has been delish.

I've stayed at both the Garden Grove and Anaheim Sheraton's for various work, business, and training trips and this is my favorite. The location is cool and very close to a bunch of nice restaurants and shopping (and Disney). Only downsides are parking (which isn't the most convenient) and the hotel could use a little updating. But, otherwise, I shoot to stay here when I'm in town.

Favorite burger joint in Ashburn. Really diverse set of burger options and the toppings bar is legit. Great for families.

I wanted to really like this place, but ended up thinking it was just ok. I grew up in Hawaii and love all things related to it. But... this place just seemed to be to formal and corporate to really encompass Hawaiian food. The seafood was definitely fresh and high quality, I think I was just looking for a little more je ne sais quoi.

This is my favorite restaurant in Ashburn; if we have people visiting or friends coming in from DC, this is where I take them so they don't think Ashburn is the boring burbs. Good, unique dishes and really fresh seafood.
