Who doesn't want their business poster to have Back to the Future font?

Nothing surprising about Apple and Samsung battling for super smart phone dominance. What was surprising? The awesome Trading Places article image.
It's hard out there for a smartphone manufacturer -- especially when you're up against mobile titans like Apple and Samsung. The two companies made up 90 percent of the entire smartphone industry's pr...

Want to know how fellow studio owners spend their time?

Thank you to everyone that participated in the survey I posted a few weeks back. We now have over 50 responses and counting.

If you own a yoga studio and would like to see what other studio owners have to say about running their business, click this link to see the survey and check out the results: http://goo.gl/QSV2l.

Be well!

NJ (and other States, of course) have been doing this for years. I've always wondered what the deer that use these bridges must think of the traffic that's flying by underneath them. Beautiful picture.

Introduction
I love working with people on projects that are challenging and fun. That ranges from big time project management to smaller business marketing, and the occasional batch of home brew.

Topics I'm particularly interested in include socially minded business(es), using things like Google+ to grow my own understanding of things, craft brew and getting in a good run where I am in the world.

You can email me here any time you like.

My family and I have lived on three continents in the past 18 months. We wander.
