I just sent off the first round of letters notifying people that we’re mothballing BiziPorts – our enterprise level CMS system. Now, while we haven’t agreed to fully shut it down, we haven’t done much work on it for quite some time. The last change commit in GitHub was dated fall of 2014. We haven’t […]
TheAthletic.com. Great Chicago Sports website. An example that your first website won’t be perfect.
As I was talking about on my personal site, I was looking forward to checking out TheAthletic.com to see how it how it stacks up to other Chicago sports sites. But, it’s me, so while reading and skimming, I started getting into the guts of the website to see if there were things they could […]
"How do I start up a networking group?" Well, here’s how we did it back home.
My buddy Dustin Paliga hit me up on Facebook Messenger with the following question: How would I go about starting networking events in Lansing so I can start growing the restaurant more? The restaurant in question is the newest from their family’s long lineage of great places: Bohemian Joe’s aka “BoJoes”, the
Business Plan outline (update) template and resources I’m using for products, services, and the content engine that will move them.
I spent the last seven hours going back over tasks in Asana and other online resources. What I plan to do next is update the playbook for our products & services as well as the content that will help propel the machine. I swear all I was getting ready to do was watch Cubs / […]
Taking a startup platform out of prototype is like having your memory erased but being left with a cache of notes
The long, hard road to getting back to Project 03 is back in my sights. Turn signal on, hand over hand on the wheel. I spent more time on it today than I had in the last few weeks. Of course, then we had a glitch so I spent most of the time looking to […]
How Ello can stay ad-free and reach their goals. Probably. (Hint: #kcco)
As I eat here in this Subway for the second time today while our apartment is going through mold remediation, I find myself repeatedly checking my inbox for that f*****’ Ello.co invite. Update, 2014/09/26 9:50am PDT: I’m in. A big, “Thank You,” goes out to Douglas Karr for the invite. What the Hell-o is Ello? […]
2014 personal website reminders – the all nighter checklist
We’ve got 3 sites to push out with a couple more in talks and so I stayed up all night working on this site. Why? Because I’ve had a website since Jonathan Thomas showed me how to put up a WordPress site nearly 6 years ago and this is the first time I’ve ever had […]

This week I’m looking forward to finishing up sketching our final product offerings to take our next Euchre Session so we can decide when and what offerings should be available: Beta Stage 1 Stage […]
Decompression during Project 03 SWOT analyses
With family situations on both sides of our household over the last year needing our undivided attention at times as well as a constant testing and refinement of Project 03, the load can take its toll if not enough rest is spaced out. We got to Friday night and crashed With our first weekend to […]
Passing on the #NWITweetup Torch
Passing the #NWITweetup Torch I’m taking a break on the couch before Katie gets home, tracing the sleep-deprivation fog I wrote about yesterday that is still in my head. While horizontal I am texting with one of the Project 03 confidants who is in a similar place in her career as I am. She has […]
