    I went to Panera yesterday morning to pick up some pastries for a company meeting. As usual, the cashier asked if I had a reward card, and asked if I’d like to get a reward card. I said, “no” to both. However, I might just change my mind after my experience! The cashier gave me [...]

I recently tried to pay my water bill online, and the UI was awful, and my water bill is still unpaid! First, we thought we could pay [...]

    A big industry trade show is just a few weeks away, and I’ve been getting cold calls all over the place for a myriad of different services and products. We always talk about the latest thing, but I’ve found that some sales tactics are tried and true. The direct and authoritative route. One sales person [...]

    My mother-in-law is gaining steam in a business for hand-decorated theme cookies. She’s the owner and the sole employee, and she does some pretty amazing designs with icing! She’s been asking for pricing advice over the last few months, and I think she’s finally made some strides in how she’s pricing her items. I wanted [...]
