This is particularly odd to […]
SourceCon is a conference stocked full of energy, innovation, and an amazing group of friends. Don’t miss it! A major “win” is the people you meet and talk with and spark new friendships with people like Erin Mathew. We’ve talked about getting “sourced,” writing articles, and Reddit often. However, I think there’s an essential lesson on […]
A few years back I wrote a post over at The Project called the 5 Things To Do at Work the Day after Thanksgiving. It’s solid, a bit boring for my taste. Probably when I wrote it, like writing this post, I believed it wouldn’t be read by anyone, so let’s not put too much […]

The power of communication is a fantastic thing. Reflect upon a recent conversation with someone that went great. The one whereas you walked away you felt like you had a clear image or purpose from what was discussed. The chances are that person was a great communicator. Maybe they told a great story or painted […]
