The coming storm of business…

This post was originally written on Facebook back in December 2009… When it comes to the coming storm of business, what is the condition of the household you have built? Does it weather the storm?

When the end is near…

Times like these tend to challenge our worldview… Henry David Thoreau once said, “It’s not what you look at, it’s what you see”.
