Say what you want about attorneys, they will often have you think through things you never considered and mitigate downside risk. Full Disclosure: I am currently married to an attorney and no warranties are expressed or implied by that statement, or any statements.   Earlier this week, a deal that we had signed in November […]

Every once in a while, I wonder if people who are building product actually use their own products. How could someone have approved the 2 screen takeovers, one from the top and one from the bottom at the same time?   Granted, the metrics must be amazing because it is so hard to read the […]

Yesterday I went to the NEAA show, it’s a regional industry show for the payments industry. One of the panels focused on small businesses. Based on estimates reported, their are either 24 Million or 30 Million entities (LLC’s / S Corp / C Corp) in the US that make less than $100,000 a year. Let’s […]

Earlier this week I was speaking to a friend working on a new service offering for customers. It was a subscription plan with weekly checkin calls and as we were speaking, there was a want to automate. I love automation, it’s why I have a bunch of apps that can replace text and make things […]

Get it . out of your head. No matter how small it may seem, if you don’t want to do it again, or you’re asking someone else to do it… write it down.   This became abundantly clear that I had gotten lazy with this as we are hiring new team members. All the things […]
