Jumping Out Of A Plane
No, we’re not jumping out of a plane. Quite frankly, I feel that jumping out of a perfectly good plane is just plain silly – I’m also terrified of heights, so that might factor in there somewhere.

Social Media: What’s The Big Deal?
“Are you on Facebook?” “I’ll Facebook you.” “You can see the pictures on my Facebook page.” All of these phrases have become commonplace to us in our personal lives. What about in our business lives? Is it really that important for your business or organization to be involved in Social Media? The short answer? Yes. […]READ MORE
