IowaStateHouse2

Today I got to take the “Mr. Marketer / BrandChef” hat off for the afternoon and spend it at the Iowa State House with my wife and my eldest son to lobby for a cause that, over the last year, has become very dear to our hearts […]

Grandpa Mac’s Call-To-Action for the Upcoming Generations

the greatest generations call-to-action for generation x, generation Y and Millenials

Grandpa Mac’s Call-To-Action for the Upcoming Generations.
When did the skin of America become so damn thin? Remember when we were the chapped, rebel, bad-asses on the block? I do. Anymore we act like a bunch of pampered playboys (and girls to be P.C.) looking for the cheapest […]

The Intrinsic Value Of Pants

I joined Kosama Downtown (check out their program here) a few weeks ago, and with my busy schedule, I “wisely” set the time for my workouts for 5 AM.  Needless to say, 5 am comes pretty early these days, so forgetfulness is usually forgiven. For those that […]

This Snow-Day Is Brought To You By…

This post is for my fellow Midwesterners that have, over the last 60 hours, braved the cold, wind and driving snow from one of the worst blizzards seen in this area in almost a decade.

It’s Good Business, And It’s All About People.

Do you know anyone that you’d call a “Go-Getter?” Yeah, that guy/gal that always seems to be working on getting results at virtually any cost?  Sure, I know ‘em quite well. I know, because I have always been one… A “do-er,” as one employer labeled me.  I […]
