Summer 2017 I read this article by Michael Hyatt entitled 7 Things to Ask When Bad Things Happen. It is a terrific article, and at that time I had the thought, “man, glad everything is going well and I don’t have to use it.” The very next day, one of my managers turned in his … Continue reading Opportunities In The Unexpected
This blog post is a bit different than my typical SaaS, Leadership, and technology topics. I’ll continue writing on those topics but I have a heart for non-profits and the work they do. If you’re working with a non-profit and I’d be honored to hear your story and what they’re all about. Recently I assisted … Continue reading Increasing The Efficiency of Your Not-for-profit
