Five Years of Blogging!

I started writing this blog five years ago on November 14, 2002.  I was a much more prolific poster at that time; I was also unemployed.  Since then I have created two businesses and become a partner in Bridge Consulting International.  My kids have been to college.  And I still blog.  I even have another blog at  This blog  focuses on executive education, strategy and innovation, which is my business focus as well.  Please continue to follow both blogs, I want to improve the content, my frequency of posting, and the presentation of the blogs.  I host them myself now, so I can make adjustments as I see fit.
