Creating a Business Plan

Monday, October 10th, 2011

That said, there can be tremendous value in planning. Thinking through a business in advance is hard work and requires deep […]

Love Your Customers

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Let me share a possibly unorthodox angle on customer service. One reason my business has been successful is that I enjoy running it. A big part of that enjoyment is that I genuinely like the people my business attracts as long-term customers. I include many of them among my friends and hang out with them […]

Microloans

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Recently I started getting into microloans.

Product Survey Results

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Recently I posted a product survey to ask readers what they thought I should create next. The survey included questions about topics, formats, and delivery methods for new personal development products. Now I’ll share the results, insights I learned, and how this affects plans for the road ahead. I wasn’t sure if I should even […]

SBI 2-for-1 Holiday Special

Friday, November 26th, 2010

SBI is offering their annual special buy one get one free holiday promotion. This is the best deal they offer. In fact, it’s now the only special deal they offer each year, having discontinued all their other seasonal promotions (Valentine’s Day, Spring Special, etc).
