The Fallacy of ME, ME, ME Marketing

February 13th, 2019 (1 Comment)

Question on Quora: “Is it okay to post pictures of yourself on Instagram? Would people think I’m too much into myself?” Top answer: “Since 99.99% of Instagram users have chosen to make evident how in love they are with themselves, you’ll fit right in.” I had to think of that when one of my colleagues […]

Mind Your Own Business

February 6th, 2019 (No Comments)

Gerald Griffith, the charismatic creator of VO Atlanta, is a clever cookie. He wants to give the attendees of this conference what they want. How does he know what they want? It’s simple. He’s not afraid to ask. It’s an approach many small business owners (such as VO’s) could learn something from: 1. understand your […]

January 30th, 2019 (No Comments)

Are you a nail-biter, a chain-sitter, or an overeater? We all have bad habits we want to get rid of. Here are some of the things I have written about in the past, I wish colleagues would let go of in 2019.  1. Spending money on new equipment while you’re still in a bad recording space. Yes, I […]

Why I Want You To Fail

January 23rd, 2019 (6 Comments)

“Failure” is one of the dirtiest words in the dictionary. In a culture where the notion of “being successful” is forced upon us from an early age, failure is hardly an option. Winners never fail, and who doesn’t want to be a winner? Helicopter parents pressure their offspring to always be the best, and go […]

January 2nd, 2019 (No Comments)

“Seize the day,” “Carpe Diem,” “Maximize each moment.”  In a society as hectic as ours, that seems to be sound advice. Especially at the beginning of a new year. All of us are given a limited time on earth. The best thing is to use it wisely. Don’t worry too much about tomorrow. Get the most […]

December 19th, 2018 (13 Comments)

Because I’m the son of a minister, people have always assumed that Christmas was my favorite time of year. To tell you the truth: it wasn’t.  In fact, every year I was glad it was over. In the weeks leading up to the celebration of the birth of Christ, our home became a very stressful […]
