You Don’t Get to Yes Before Getting to No

It’s not a law.  Sometimes, people will buy from you or accept your idea or go on a date with you right off the bat.  But most don’t.
This is an important axiom precisely because it is largely ignored by anyone not in sales.  Sales people are pretty damn smart.  They know that the amount of [...]

Google Analytics Is Up & Running

In my prior life, I ran the marketing department for a smaller promotional product company (top line 5mm).  I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever learn as much about something again in my life.  Any possible aspect of marketing had potential for us, as long as it wasn’t a huge advertising campaign with huge spend, [...]

Time To Grind, Half Way There

The last month or so every weekend has been filled up with some sort of travel or activity, which was a blast.  Summers are often like that, it’s difficult to find a weekend when you’re actually home and able to get some things done.
My internship is half way complete, and generally speaking, I feel very [...]

"When I Get Out Of School"

It seems that I’m always thinking or saying that statement lately.  Part of it is my penchant to plan things out in the long term, part of it the time and resource constraints held on you over attending a full time program.  Plans are always going on in my head.  Business plans, life plans, etc.
Working [...]

Community Service

The idea of giving back and helping out the communities you live in has interested me for some time, mostly since getting out of undergrad.  Building small things into big things is the whole idea behind my career, and many ways my life.  At least that’s what I aspire toward.  It’s not always easy, but [...]

Back to Work

And loving it.  The 40 (actually 50+) hour work week is different than school, but in a good way.  There is much more of a cadence and normalcy to the real world, it fits me.  The internship has started off well, the company I work for has been incredibly gracious to all of us and [...]

Eating Healthy Is Expensive

I’ve been doing spring cleaning out the body, working out a decent amount and getting some decent amounts of cardio in too.  I use a pull up bar and do pushups in the morning and at night, now I’m ordering a sit up mechanism that sits on your door, we’ll see how that works out.  [...]

Finalizing A Professional Deck

The Carlson Consulting Enterprise is a lot of work.  I mean that sincerely.  My first project for this group has been a macro trend analysis for a truly inspirational local nonprofit (actually, almost every project I’ve done so far in business school for RL has been nonprofit work!).  The process that goes into producing our [...]

Some Things to Chew On

Here is a bevy of topics happening.  It’s late, so bare with me.
There are a ton of bloggers I read but can’ t fully appreciate.  Reason being that they don’t write about an issue or idea in a way that gets me wanting to write about it too.  If something is well written, it usually [...]

The Digital Divide Initiative & Raspberries

A big reason that new projects and working opportunities are the raspberries.  Have you ever gone raspberry picking?  It’s a lot of fun and recommended for a great afternoon with young relatives.
As you pick raspberries something funny happens.  You think that you’ve gotten all of them.  You spend a long time working at a specific [...]
