I LOVE this restaurant!

I got this coupon in an email a week prior to my birthday.  Not only was it a great deal (50% off), it's for a place I actually eat at.  So, hooray for Tucanos, a company that gives great deals to people that already like them!

Competitive Advantage, Part 1

No matter the shape of the economy, gaining a competitive advantage is an important key to business growth.

Quit looking at the numbers and act like a corner store.

Gun Lovin' Fun!

Which one of these is not like the others?

If you guessed that only one of them has a big, white tag, you're RIGHT...but it's not what I was thinking of when I snapped this shot at Walmart. I, of course, was looking at the PINK gun on the left.

Site Updates

To all my readers:

Over the next few months, the site will be going through some back-end changes that will cause change to its look fairly regularly. Don't worry though, because the content will still be here for your perusal. I've been taking some web design classes so I don't have to rely so heavily on Blogger to control my site layout. Keep reading, and don't forget to post comments on the posts you like, even if they're old; you never know what could spark a discussion!


What I've learned from failure

Especially in this economy, it's hard to get a business up and going. Even once things are moving, the difficulty of keeping the forward momentum going is a continual problem. Over my career, I've worked for great businesses, some of which were large, and some of which were VERY small. I'm going to be focusing on the smallest two because they are the most applicable to my target audience: the small business owner.

Beard Types

Not that I'm an expert on facial hair, but this list seems incomplete. Most of my facial hair experiments are on this chart. I've done the short boxed beard, which eventually got shaved down to the Van Dyke, but never had the courage to try most of these.
