Promotional Efforts

I am happy to say that my flyers finally arrived for my promotional mailing yesterday. They came out better than I hoped—very cute! But then I also had an amazing designer, Jill Ronsley, create them. Now I have 10,000 flyers sitting in boxes in my living room which I need to ship out ASAP. I’ll post a picture of the flyer on my flickr page: (…

Got your mask on?

Got your mask on?

Halloween has never been a meaningful event for me. In Bolivia, my native country, there was no such thing. But in my efforts to embrace the American culture, I joined the tradition. My three little boys dashed out wearing their ugly masks, hunting for candy from house to house.…

Christmas When Music Almost Killed the World

Recently I tried to decide what to make of the difficulty that a Pulitzer Prize-winning author is having getting his latest novel published. Several other celebrated

authors who found themselves in the same boat chose to get out of it and make

their books available either as downloads or through “author-service”

publishers. Their…

Our Holiday Halloween

Our Halloween trick-or-treat customs actually descended from a belief that the family dead would bring gifts or so called goodies to the children upon their temporary return from the other side. If you stop to think about that, it makes quite a bit of sense. Gifts, food and sweets are still a standard method today when it comes to attracting our children to other holidays such as, Christmas and Easter.

Our celebration of Halloween rituals are relics of the pagan, or what was known as…

An Average Day

Well, today I sent off the very last of my Advance Review Copies to those interested in reviewing my book. I wish I had printed more but so far the responses have been positive so I suppose it is okay that I only printed the amount that I did. The actual book should be here in a month’s time anyway, so that is good news.…

California vs. New Orleans

California vs. New Orleans

Watching the news of the California fires, I cannot imagine the horrible feelings that must come with seeing your home in ashes, along with all your personal treasures and memories. The further scope of whole neighborhoods and the destruction that fire leaves behind must be absolutely devastating. My heart goes out to all of those who go "home" to face this horrible…

Your Business is Already Dying.

Initiate Change.

Innovate regardless of how difficult or expensive a change can be, you will never grow without it.

Systems can always be optimized.

Marketing efforts can always be re-thought, but without the desire to change, to innovate, your company will never live.
