IT’s Train Wreck Tuesday!

By |October 27th, 2015|

Having founded our company on the last April Fools’ Day of the 80’s, I’ve found a regular dose of humor to be an effective antidote to the night sweats that afflict those of us foolhardy enough to enter the world of entrepreneurial terror.

By |September 16th, 2014|

Recall, my first book seeks to answer this question — what has being in business for life taught me about the business of life? The following excerpt was not an easy one to write. But, if one person finds solace in my story, it will have been worth the pain, because…

By |April 7th, 2014|

Looking back on our twenty-five years in business, I’ve agonized over what to say about it that would pass the “so what and who cares?” test.  Certainly, most of our company’s “firsts” would miserably fail. I fear the irony of our first transaction is lost on everyone but me.  After all, I left the world […]

Solving the IT Consulting Contractual Conundrum

By |September 17th, 2012|

IT is what IT is…or is IT?  The IT consulting industry is unique in many ways. Chief among them is the fact that virtually every contract is cancellable at will by the client. As they should be, in my opinion. Though some may disagree…IT is what IT is and not likely to change.

Despite the freedom to […]

One Thing…From The Land Between

Tellin’ it like IT is

By |July 22nd, 2011|

Ours is truly the ultimate people business.  As such, players in the IT consulting game are subject to ebullient highs and excruciating lows.  Having been in the game for nearly a quarter of a century now, I’ve had my fair share of both.  Yet, I still get near giddy whenever we put one of our […]
