In this day of innovation and information sharing, is it possible that we may actually not repeat some of our mistakes?  Is it possible in this new global sharing economy that cycles and patterns are changing?  I think so, and if that is the case, leaning on YOUR experience could actually make you very Continue Reading…

So, this has to be the funniest headline (for me at least) I’ve ever come up with.  It has been inspired by me watching several key people in several businesses (big and small) shoot their feet off (as recent as last week); and all for no reason.  So, to break down the title.  Some religions believe the cow is a sacred animal.  Many other religions like to eat the cow!  So the conflict emerged as the saying, “there is no sacred cow”; in other words; you may be slaughtered!  So it is an idiom, that Wikipedia puts best Continue Reading…
