My Favorite Free Software


I have a huge budget for software, to run my business and some just for fun.

BUT, it’s always a very nice surprise to find something of great value, that fills a need, and doesn’t cost anything. Over the past year or so, I’ve kept a list of my Top Freebies.

I’d like to […]

Any Road Won’t Get You There


I was traveling today. Some two-lane roads, some back roads, and some interstate miles. It’s a familiar trip, all the way across the state of South Carolina, from the ocean to the mountains. We traveled our usual route, and prepared to turn off of I-26 onto I-385, and head on up toward the mountains…the […]

How To Get Inspired to Write a Blog Post


When I decided to bring my offline business online, I did a lot of research and it seemed that no matter what the side trails were, all roads led to my needing a blog. No matter that I had a nice website and had paid a pretty penny to have it looking good. A […]

Preparing for Smooth Sailing – A Lesson I Learned at Lunch


I was outside yesterday afternoon, enjoying lunch with friends. We were at one of the best oceanfront dining locations along the whole Grand Strand (as our beach is called). From our dining vantage point, we could not only see the waves rolling in to the wide sandy beach, but there were a variety of […]

New Technologies to Love in 2010


Any who uses technology for fun or business knows that one thing is constant – and that is change. Nothing stays the same for long. I remember back in the mid-1980’s when 100 mg hard drives were considered really high-end. Now, I have some files that are larger than that! The changes are so […]

Joint Ventures and Baseball


I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and we have a AA Farm Team for the Atlanta Braves. Tonight was absolutely a beautiful evening with perfect weather for watching a baseball game. I was with family and friends, I’d had a freshly-baked pretzel, was munching on popcorn and sipping my diet soda. It was […]

I spend most of my day working online. That means that speed and performance from my computer is of utmost importance. My computer isn’t just a convenience – it’s my lifeline and I can’t do my job without it. There are a few tasks that I perform on a regular basis that insure top […]

Who ME?? – You’re kidding, right?


I’m always guilty of assuming that bad things won’t happen to me. Let me give you some evidence, lest you think I’m kidding. My father died long before he was retirement age of a massive coronary. Yet, when I had chest pains and had trouble walking from a store in the mall to the […]

3 Little-Known Blog Tips


Sue and I did a free webinar this afternoon, “Questions You Have About Blogging.” It was an opportunity for people to ask questions and have us answer. I’d say that most of the people in attendance aren’t using blogs, but they are becoming convinced that they should, no matter what their industry is. We […]

Ebb and Flow of Energy


WOW! The blogging challenge is over, and yet here I sit, late at night, writing a blog post. I’m actually physically tired today as well as a little brain-tired. Just like the ocean tides ebb and flow, so does our work and our energy. We have to learn to recognize where we are in […]
