Millennial Drops Bomb On Boomer In Sauna War

Most mornings, I can be found in my fitness center sauna following a workout.  Monday night was a rare exception. With a late business dinner on tap, I decided to hit the lap pool around 6pm to catch a second wind before heading downtown.  Little did I know I was heading smack dab into the Sauna War. I was [...]

Saluting Our Silent Cyber War Heroes

Having recently spoken to dozens of Chief Security Officers (CSO) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISO), I've yet to find a single one who does not agree with the following quote from Senator Coats. "Cyber threats have moved to the No. 1 spot as the most direct threat to America." - Dan Coats, Director of [...]

IT Leadership Change Under Consideration…

...or perhaps it should be?  Imagine receiving the resignation of your top IT executive.  Would you be concerned or relieved?  If you would be relieved, then it might be time to consider a change in IT leadership.  But, before listing all the problems you perceive with your current IT leader, consider stepping back to see [...]

After all, when you lose your sense of humor…you lose. Over a [...]

The Road To Humility Is Paved With Humilation

Ambassador Solutions Celebrates 25 Years On 4/1/14!

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 [...]
