Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about. Whether you want to admit it or not, we all have had thoughts about being famous or popular for something (whether business-wise or talent-wise. I will be focusing on business). Hence why you started a business or why you are thinking of starting a business. That does not make you narcissistic at all, it actually shows how selfless you are. Because businesses always provide a NEED for people and you are…Continue

So here it is in a nutshell, if you want to be taken seriously then present yourself seriously! Honestly, if you don't care enough to invest in professional photos, then don't expect potential clients to invest in your…Continue
Small businesses and start-ups put forth great effort to appear stable and established. But often times they have a 'tell'. Business cards printed at home, an AOL email address or ...a tri-fold brochure. No matter how great your company/ service may be, you simply sell yourself short with these marketing flubs.

This guy from an office next door kept coming in to say he was there to help me. Seemed like a nice enough man.

Okay, yes the title may tell you I know a little something about martial arts...but no, I don't. Only as much as the last Karate Kid movie
(which is one of my kids' favorites) and the line from Kung Fu Panda
which says that Kung Fu stands for "excellence of self".
