Want to take a glimpse at the early days of the Internet? Thanks to the non profit organization, The Internet Archive, snapshots of millions of websites have been preserved for all time. What a great historical record for future generations.

Good to know. I was aware of a few of these, but several were a surprise.

The dreaded conference call. It's a fact of life in business. These days they are even more challenging due to the fact that remote workers are now the rule rather than the exception. The Wall Street Journal has some good tips to make conference calls as productive as possible.

If you're like me, information overload is a constant problem. But also on the flip side, not staying up to date with the latest business and tech trends can be just as much of an issue and can have very costly consequences when it comes to your competitive edge in the business world. 

Inc Magazine has a great article about staying up to date on the latest trends without falling into the all too common information overload trap.
You can't constantly monitor every development in your industry, but a few techniques can greatly expedite getting the knowledge you need.

Whether you use social media for personal or business, it's important to manage your social media persona. Remember what gets posted on the web is there forever! I can only imagine the dirt that will be dug up during future political campaigns via old social media post. A few ill advised minutes posting something inappropriate online can easily cost you a future job position, a relationship or even a shot at being president!

Fast Company has a good article about managing your social media persona. 
Maturity on social media sites distinguish the likes of Justin Timberlake from Justin Bieber. But it's not just celebrities who need to manage their...

So what's the deal with Xmas? Is it really anti Christian? The truth may surprise you.
; What's a Four-Letter Word for Christmas? The phrase "four-letter word" doesn't exactly convey a positive connotation, does it? It's a phrase that conjures up words that cause censors to bleep and mothers to scold. If you accidentally bang your ...

Occupation
I'm one of those fortunate individuals that makes a living in the Professional Christmas Industry. Yes, there really is a whole industry dedicated to Christmas.

Photo work as well as graphics and video productions. Consulting and business development for other professional Christmas businesses is also a big part of daily work life.

Story
Introduction
I was born and raised in the country outside of Amarillo, TX. After high school I headed to the big city of Dallas and eventually made my way to South Florida for about 10 years of fun in the sun. Eventually my home state of Texas was calling me back home so I packed up the family and headed to a nice quiet town just north of Dallas.

I live with my wife and two children in McKinney, Texas and enjoying life to the fullest. We love the outdoors and now that the kids are getting older, we're able to get back to camping, backpacking, biking and exploring the great outdoors.

When it comes to work, I'm all about Christmas. I've been in the professional Christmas industry for most of my adult life and I couldn't ask for a better career. This little known industry is full of excitement, challenges and great people.
Bragging rights
2 great kids, an understanding wife and a whirlwind of a life keeps things interesting.
