In My Day – Trigger Warnings

I’ve been writing these posts for a bit and they’ve been relatively innocuous. And, to me, this remains a relatively innocuous thing. That trigger warnings are something anyone sees as controversial is extraordinarily confusing to me. It becomes doubly confusing when the people who call it out are the ones who […]

In My Day – Text Messages

I just finished writing a whole book that is entirely two teenager’s text transcript (and the people who got ahold of their phones during that time). So I thought I’d share some of my insights on text messaging I’ve gathered in the last 13 years of evangelizing real-time wireless solutions for businesses […]

Lessons From K-Drama: The Liars’ Arc

The Truth in Sales

Well, once again we have an instance of an author behaving badly floating around the internet, but no matter when you’re reading this you’ll find one. In this case there was catfishing and lying. And this got me thinking about the last decade or so that I’ve spent in selling. […]
