End of the Year, Beginning of New Opportunities

End of the Year, Beginning of New Opportunities

This past year was an eventful one for me. I cannot believe how much I’ve written in the past 24 months, and especially in the last 12. Actually, I should say I can’t believe how much I’ve had published in the last 12 months. I have turned out more content than I ever would have believed …

Words Represent You

One of the most important things about any business today is it’s ability to make a good first impression, and make one quickly. In the Internet age the 50 mile circle around your physical office is no longer your main concern. Every business is now an international entity since the people no longer need to …

Putting the Pieces Together

Putting the Pieces Together

In the many years I’ve been writing and helping people get their thoughts down on paper in a coherent manner I have discovered that words are fickle. They come to some through their voices and to others through a pen. They escape the most well-spoken man when he sits down at a desk to write …
