I fully intended to do a video blog before the July 4th Holiday Weekend, but it’s just been one of those weeks. Two weekends ago, our building was hit by lightning, and we lost several computers and other pieces of hardware that had to be replaced. It’s taken until now to get everything up and ru...

A couple years back, we made up a holiday (yeah, we sometimes do strange things like that). We call it 504 Day, and it falls on May 4th of each year. Despite our best efforts, we haven’t been able to get it registered as a national holiday yet (and Hallmark doesn’t yet recognize it), but I’d like...

As you probably know by all the coverage it has gotten, the Royal Wedding is tomorrow morning, and it seems my invitation to it got lost in the British postal system.  In all seriousness, I’ve filmed today’s video to let you know how the entrepreneurial dream for wealth creation through commercia...
