CONTRASTS

To the writers of this world: Whether you write fiction, biography, historical facts or whatever, there are a few 'ingredients' which are an integral part of your being which come into play each time you dip pen in ink.

Lessons From The Social Media Trenches!

I am one of the lucky ones.

Low Ball Pricing? Don’t Go There!

It is a common strategy for small businesses is to undercut the competition by charging lower prices. Especially true for new businesses, those looking to expand quickly or those who see sales deteration and loss. Don’t do it!

One of the oddest things about the beautiful human mind is that it can trick us out of getting what we need. And we can come up with an endless number of reasons why we haven't addressed a need but, the troublesome thing about "needs" is that they don't go away - on their own, that is.



Recently, I've been having some terrific conversations with some of the most intelligent men and women I've ever met.



Yet, there seems to be this common thread among many of them: many…
