Keep It So Simple

When it comes to running your business, the last thing you need is extra complexity. Whether you’re dealing with customers, tracking your accounting, or placing ads, every layer of complexity is another layer between you and success.

Always Have A Backup Plan

Since I began my time on this blog, I have (for the most part) always tried to take the optimistic view. And with good reason, as that’s how I feel. You are going to succeed. It is not a matter of if, it is simply a matter of when. But I like my optimism with […]

Women In The Business World

This is going to be a touchy subject for some. I will do my absolute best to be as sensitive on this subject as possible, but I am not a perfect human being (none of us are), so I may inadvertently word something in a way that some might consider offensive. For this, I apologize. […]

Avoid Complacency

Ahh complacency, the easiest trap for any business to fall in to. Let’s say your business is up and running, you have a dedicated client base, and you’re experiencing steady, or increasing revenue. Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? It certainly looks like success. Everything’s going smoothly, money is coming in, your PIE is growing at […]

A New Year, A New Beginning

Well here we are my friends, the penultimate day of 2012. It’s been quite the year for my team and I. I launched this blog way back in March (which I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading, and will continue to enjoy for years to come), traveled overseas several times, had the opportunity to attend the Toronto International Film […]

Trusting Your Feelings

When it comes to business, there’s a trap that it’s all too easy for all of us to fall into. I’ve done it, you’ve probably done it, we’ve all done it at some point. That trap is this: that making money at any cost is the name of the game. And while that’s mostly true […]
