One of the most popular posts on ThadThoughts is one I wrote several years ago about a digital signage solution for small businesses.  Month in and month out, that post is looked at by people attempting to answer a real need without breaking the bank. Recently I found an even better solution…two

One morning a few years ago, my friend Bart walked in to my office and tells me he is leaving the company for another job. Notice I said a friend.  That's because that is what he is. My friend. Part of me was terrified at him leaving (he was a valuable, high performing team member). Part of me was
