Initial Comments

Just got back from a fantastic vacation. My wife and I have been talking about doing the dude ranch thing for years …. we have been waiting for our boys to get to an age where they will appreciate it but not be too old to be able to punch out. Kyle just turned 13. Tim is 16. We decided that this was the year. We went to a great ranch just outside of Salmon Idaho, a place with more cows and horses than people. The Twin Peaks Ranch gave us a week of horseback riding, whitewater rafting, fantastic food and some absolutely unbelievable hospitality. There also was not a cell phone tower or television within miles. We would recommend the vacation to anyone. Also spent four outstanding days after the ranch experience driving and hiking in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. My only problem now is how do I top this vacation next year ……

Completed reading Word of Mouth Marketing by Andy Sernovitz while on vacation. (No I couldn’t totally turn off business while on vacation but I got very close) I met Andy at a presentation he gave to the Indianapolis chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA). He is an excellent speaker and his book gave me a ton of ideas that I want to try. He recommends starting a blog …. so here we go. Don’t know how long this will last or what we will say. I’ve seen a lot of things in the military (submarines) , at a large pharmaceutical company (Lilly), consulting and at a number of startups. I’m currently up to my neck (not literally) dealing with head lice. I have enjoyed everything I’ve ever done so I decided to give it a try.

Send me a line and we’ll get a conversation going. All the best!
