  • Be Aware Of What You Are Buying

    I’ve never owned a fancy car so I don’t know how it works when you take one to the mechanic, but I know my car guy doesn’t like to work on boats or lawn mowers.

Websites are not outside of that same pattern, are they?

    Over the next few segments we will look at three areas that, I hope, will help you plan for the best solution on your website be that with my company or another: ...(Read More)

  • Doing What We Are Good At

    One night my nephew was at my house for a visit. He is a genius mechanic. He can look at things and just know how they work, what’s wrong, and makes the fix look like it is so simple. I have an old slot machine I had tried to fix a dozen times. It had not worked in 10 years or more. Chris takes one look and about 20 minutes later it is working like new. He is really good at that. I am not....(Read More)
