Without Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram to take our time and attention away from the work at hand, our diversions were chats at the water cooler and the occasional personal call.

Now That Summer Is (Almost) Over, It’s Time to Gear Up for 4th Quarter

I hate to say it but summer is almost over. Sure the temperature is warm and there are still more beach days ahead but the summer is coming to a close. (Just check out those Halloween costumes that are in the stores if you don’t believe me!) So say goodbye to summer and to client […]

It’s Better for Business to be a Boss and Not a Buddy

How to Become a Business Partner With Your Client

If you’re in business you might have business partners. I don’t mean one or two partners with whom you have a contractual arrangement and who help you to run the company.
