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

Snow Day Social Media Fun – February 2, 2011

What do YOU do on a Snow Day in central Iowa? Well, if you’re at all involved in social media, you get online and jump into the conversation (ANY conversation). There’s always a chat, a dialogue, a debate or simply silly talk going on within Twitter. As

Get-Going Grooves – Volume 1

Music is part of my personal brand.  I’ve written about it before. But for the last six months I’ve created quite a significant illustration of that particular personal brand trait. As a little joke/hat-tip to my friend, Terry Starbucker, I started tweeting about what was rolling off

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. Last time Iowa had snow like Tuesday and Wednesday’s storm was 1992.
