I have a personal tradition every Christmas Eve. After the kids are in bed, and everything is set for the Christmas morning, I settle down to watch Itâ€™s a Wonderful Life. My wife, Kristine, begins it with me but falls asleep by the time Clarence the angel comes on the scene.

There is really so much I want to say about Eric Alexanderâ€™s Book â€œThe Summitâ€. It is one of those books that you want to read slowly over a few weeks and a short blog post seems out of place.

You can find many services that will do your bookkeeping, scheduling, purchasing, even research and a multitude of other tasks for you, but you are the only one your customers or readers want to engage with. During my early twenties I… Read more about Why not engage? Everything else can wait

Two years ago I wrote about JCPenney’s viral ad campaign known as the Dog House Video. As the video began to spread around the internet again this Christmas season I took some time to revisit the campaign. Once a company has gained the customers attention engagement should follow.
Now that the video has millions of views and that the company has established itself as a brand that can make a viral video, customer…
