Life Is What Happens When You’re Busy Making Other Plans
I wrote a journal entry today, or I suppose now it was yesterday and I’ve been musing on it. I just finished reading “Love in the Time of Cholera”, a recommendation from a good friend, and while it wouldn’t normally be my go-to, I found it thought-provoking. It wasn’t a love-story but it was a very real representation of what life may look like if we don’t stop to evaluate, appreciate or introspect.

Guest Appearance on “So That’s My Business”
Because it's by us sharing what's authentically us, and us consuming some organization's authentic content that we can start to attract each other and find our tribe.

Video Marketing and Efficiency
Construction Wisdom I learned a very valuable lesson while working for my dad’s swimming pool company. While the muscles I gained picking up 94 pound bags of Portland cement gave me feelings of confidence, and the tolerance for being sweaty/dirty/hot gave me a “get ‘er done” attitude, if you’d asked me what’s the biggest lesson I learned, it would be this: If you need to go to the truck to grab a tool, what can you bring BACK to the truck? We need to make the trip, yes, but that is a minute or three we’re not getting any work done. Is there a way to make that time count…
June Updates (VIDEO)
It’s been some time since I’ve made a video, and some SOME time since I’ve done so with any sort of consistency. But we’re back at it and have a lot planned.

Can I See What Ads People are Running on Facebook? Yes, yes you can.
It feels like I’m spying every time I check out whether or not a company is running ads on Facebook. What are your thoughts? Somehow you found your way onto this blog, before you knew it was possible, did it feel like cheating to you? Because really, we can look at what our “competitor” is doing and copy her.(I put “competitor” in quotes because according to Wallace Wattles, we must move from the competitive to the creative, and I’d agree!) Swipe and Deploy IS a big strategy in the Marketing sphere. You see what is working for someone who has some similarity to you, and then you do your version…
I Want to add Music to my Videos – How Do I Do That? (iPhone/iPad)
I’ve gotten this question from enough business owners / solopreneurs that I think it’s worth writing a blog to address it. Now, with all of the technology out there, everyone seems to have their own system. Some of us edit on Macs. Some on PCs. Some film and edit on phones or tablets, which leads to both iPhone and Android processes. For simplicity, this article is only showcasing how to add music to videos you are editing on your iPhone. If you edit on your computer in iMovie, I will create a separate blog for that, in the meantime I do have this video about editing in general in iMovie.…
