How Can I Help?

How Can I Help?

What would happen if I, if you, if all of us could ask this more often? Not just when we are getting paid for it or when we are in that “extra charitable, feel-good mood”, but in all that we do every minute of every day? Even on those days when we really don’t...
Are you punk enough?

Are you punk enough?

When I was about twelve, I spent the summer down at the Jersey shore with my uncle and his family. I made friends with a local kid named Rick a couple of doors down from us. Rick and I hung out every day that summer skating and listening to a mix tape he had gotten...

Do You Really Need That Logo?

On a fairly regular basis we meet someone and they say, “We need a logo…a website…a mobile app…” or some other marketing asset. After doing our initial consult, we find there is quite a bit of work to be done before we can actually start...

When I first set out with this blog, I really thought I might do more “How to” posts. But, as I got into it more and really thought about how I might best help people, I realized that things move fast and that tactics we are using today may not (and probably won’t)...
