Did you just give three extra hours to a project and no one noticed or appreciated it? Time to move on.

Don't let PayPal be your only #billing option!

No one likes to be dependent on just one service to fulfill their needs, and that's certainly true for people who use PayPal.

Story
Tagline
Longtime Bay Area digital media consultant.
Introduction
I have worked at TV, newspapers, radio and internet companies in California for 20 years. I currently write for Inc., Entrepreneur, Venturebeat and SAP Innovations Blog. I have written for NBC, Village Voice, FastCompany and USAToday among others. I was an on-air TV reporter for 2 years in Santa Barbara, and as one of Digg’s power users, I drove millions of visitors to websites all over the world. I also now invest in startups and work with tech entrepreneurs to scale their businesses. Before that I wrote, produced, reported, edited, and a million other things for TV stations, radio stations and newspapers since 1994.

I like hiking, working out, watching sci-fi and politics, listening to my favorite band Led Zeppelin as well as classic rock in general, reading spiritual books, fantasy novels like Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. I have a weakness for political and religious discussions. 

I love to draw. I love to do things on the internet. I love being with my friends.
Bragging rights
Got a Masters in Education by the time I was 23. Became a TV reporter in Santa Barbara by the time I was 26.

I've been seeing Eric for the last year or so and have made tremendous personal progress in several areas, from my personal to professional life. Eric's guidance and calming presence has played an important part for me in my journey. I highly recommend you visit him.

It's hard to be anything other than satisfied at the Kunde Estate as they drive up up the side of a mountain (all on the estate) to enjoy a wine tasting session, with a view that stretches all the way south to San Pablo Bay. I was highly impressed with the jovial and welcoming demeanor of our hosts as they gave us tasting after tasting of lovely wines.

I had some lung issues recently and I am happy that Dr. Lipson was available. His expertise and knowledge pulled me through some tough situations, as I had panic attacks connected to my asthma. That situation has improved quite a bit - and he is monitoring me closely. So I am happy with how it has gone so far. He is reasonably priced too - if you have insurance. He's also a kind, nice person too.
