The Cathartic Power of Outrage

The Cathartic Power of Outrage

The Cathartic Power of Outrage: I recently witnessed a young child, say three or four, having a vein-popping meltdown at the grocery store.   (One of those high-end grocery stores where one can sense unspoken judgment upon being caught in the salty-carb aisle.) Myself and the other shoppers did our best to ignore the tantrum, but our collective awkward sidesteps left little doubt we would all be sharing details of the spectacle when we returned home. For toddlers, they can be forgiven. And this mother, to her great credit, barely reacted at all.  Not wanting to assign merit to bad…

Are Leaders Born or Made?

Are you born a leader, or are you made into a leader? I believe it is a little bit of both. In my time working in sales and business management, I have seen my share of strong leaders. I have also seen those that were in a leadership position when they were more of a follower than a leader. Are Leaders Born or Made? Leaders are Born with the “it” factor. Strong leaders have the “it” factor. They get “it”. They know what it takes to win, and they know how to lead their staff through the peaks and valleys…

Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing: One of my favorite TV shows is Last Man Standing. It’s a show I can somewhat relate to. It’s a show where there are two working parents, with three daughters. (I only have two) The main character, Mike Baxter, is played by Tim Allen. The show has the same humor as Tim’s old show Home Improvement. Take it from me, Last Man Standing is hilarious. I’ve been crushing it on Hulu lately.  Last Man Standing – Outdoor Man – The Vlog In each show, Mike Baxter updates his Vlog. The Vlogs usually have more rational or they…

Working Dad: RIP Jack Welch: Today the business world is sad to hear the news of former chairman and CEO of GE, Jack Welch’s passing.

More Baseball Card Grading

Baseball Card Grading Submission with SGC: I am in a couple of Facebook groups for baseball card collectors. A member of one of these groups offered bulk submission for SGC. I have participated in a couple of submissions already and I have been extremely happy. I am still amazed by how the card industry has changed since my Dad got me started over 35 years ago. There are several professional graders, PSA, BGS, and SGC. I have submitted to all three of them and hands down, I believe SGC is the best. My third SGC grading submission went very well! …

A Dads Work Trip Survival Guide

A Dads Work Trip Survival Guide: I just got back from the west coast for a week-long conference where I was hosting a booth to talk about my business. Call me weird, but I like doing these events. I meet a lot of interesting people. Its a lot of standing, a lot of shaking hands, and A LOT of talking. I walk away from the event with a lot of new contacts, hopefully, some new business, and a very sore back and feet. I didn’t take a lot of time packing, and I regret it; one thing is for sure,…
