My Dog Got Me To Focus

Tonight my rather senior dog decided at 11:30pm that he wanted to go out. This is nothing new of course, I’ve been known to take him at 2am, 3am, etc. He’s old, I’m old…when you gotta go, right? I’m a night owl anyway so I’m always on doggie night sh...

I'm a customer service snob. I admit this fully and without reservation. I have over 30+ years in various customer service roles, have written about it, it’s kind of a thing with me. I also firmly believe that when you work for a company, you represe...

I’ve lived in the same apartment complex for 25 years now and while we are nothing fancy like the new, poorly built (and ugly) high rises going up around our city, we have a nice area with lots of friendly people living here. While we used to live in...

Ever want to do something but think you don’t have the time for it? That’s how I felt about reading for a long time. I decided that needed to change. I took a look at how I spend my days and honestly, was disgusted at how much tv I watched. Or maybe...

This is an update post as well as an enormous THANK YOU to all who read my previous post: In Small Business, Every Penny Counts. It was my my most read piece on here so far and I gained a lot of followers from it as well. (I just hope I don’t let you...

In Small Business, Every Penny Counts

21 Dec 2020 5 minute read 9 comments CC1370

As the holiday shopping season is coming to a close, there is something that I’ve been holding on to that I feel the need to address. Let me backup a bit... I run a small business. Strike that...I run a micro business. I quite literally run an online...

Last night I went to do my nightly claim on PipeFlare but the site was down for maintenance. Tonight I logged on to find a whole new overhaul of the site and a surprise on the claim page. If you are not familiar with PipeFlare, it’s another faucet si...

While not along the lines of a usual post for me, today is always a tough day for me and for so many. I wrote the words in the graphic below two  years ago and I’ve been sharing it across all of my accounts because I truly believe that it remains as...

The 5 Positives

If you ask any of my friends I'm sure they will tell you that I'm the one who loves to make people laugh, have fun and get silly and all that stuff. Lately though, I've been very aware that I am not in that fun and silly place. To others, I put it on...
