Have you noticed lately that it is becoming less and less commonplace to hear about some dumb thing a certain celebrity or politician had said or done on the recent past, only is just now being discovered and/or reported? Well, I have. And you know why that is? It isn’t that people are behaving better […]

As I’ve grown a little older (I turned 35 in February), self-reflection has become a large part of my experience. Taking the time and examining the events, decisions, luck (both good and bad), people that have come and gone (again both good and bad), circumstances, etc. that have shaped my life to this point has […]
By now you’ve heard about the actions of one deranged psychopath in Charleston, South Carolina, USA. This is a tragedy, and my heart aches for the people who were killed, injured or otherwise affected.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since I wrote this series of pieces titled ‘How to get a job in the 21st Century’, part 1 and part 2.

In one such discussion in a group dedicated to interior design, a group user asked: What, in your opinion, describes a poorly-built website? And a really good […]
Toward the end of last summer I received a private message on LinkedIn from a contact named ‘Ted’* I had made here in Grand Rapids several years ago. Ted was a guest speaker at a seminar I attended. He and I were never close – and it’s safe to say I don’t know him well. […]
I want to share a positive customer service experience I had this week. I bought a guitar on Ebay two days ago and immediately paid for it. The auction included ‘free shipping’. Upon realizing that the estimated delivery date was unfavorable, I called the company to try to arrange for expedited shipping with the intention […]
