Moneyball

A colleague suggested I watch Moneyball – a movie made in 2011 starring Brad Pitt. He thinks I am too close to my employees which makes it harder to make difficult hiring/terminating decisions. That doesn’t seem like such a bad homework assignment, I thought. “You’ll learn valuable lessons in that movie.” he told me. “I’m going to quiz you once you’ve watched it.”

Moneyball, I learned, is about “baseball during …

He Accepted our Rose

I’m not into Realty TV. OK – I occasionally watch Long Island Medium, trying to figure out if Teresa Caputo can really connect with loved ones who have passed. I’ve watched an episode (or two) of Sister Wives trying to figure out WHAT really goes on in that family. I’ve never watched Honey Boo Boo and have never met anyone who does. This season – however – I broke down …

The Importance of 50

Turning 50 usually means you …

Memorial Day and Hershey, PA

Memorial Day commemorates those who sacrificed their lives for us. Today I wrote to a 14 year old boy who lives in Kansas City, MO., telling him how much I was thinking of his Dad. You see, Braydon Nichols’ father, Brian, lost his life when the Chinook helicopter he was flying in Afghanistan was shot down in August of 2011. ( http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/08/09/chinook.son.ireport/ ) I happened to be watching NBC National …

Boutiques – Not Just For Hair Anymore

Let me tell you about my friend Curtis.  Curtis is an “Internet Marketing Specialist” who knows more about how to make things like ranking and placement and optimization improvements to your website than anyone I have ever met.  Sure, I’ve dropped acronyms like SEO around my non-technical friends, impressing them with my fictitious knowledge of what it really means and what it actually does.  I’ve spoken to my staff about …
