I am very excited about an upcoming video segment on Bier Brewery in Indianapolis, Indiana. The craft beer phase is upon us and the Indianapolis marketplace certainly has a lot of competition. I had the pleasure of making a brief stop at this brewery last night while on a beer tour with 13 of my favorite coworkers. I think you will be interested in learning more from Jerry at Bier. Not only does he make a fantastic product, its award winning! So, stay tuned for more on

Shopping for the holidays is an often harrowing experience for many reasons. First there is making a list of who you will be giving gifts to, then determining a budget for each person, and lastly finding a wonderful gift while keeping on budget.
The worst part about the last step is the excruciating excursion to the mall. Finding a parking space, battling crowds, navigating your way through screaming kids, and lines a mile long at the gift-wrapping station. YUK!

So you don't like the colors of your company's website. You think your new business cards are too boring, too small, and too simple. You don't like your bosses choice of knit sweaters. These are private criticisms with little value, but what happens when you make your nitpicking known?

You won’t need your winter coat, but you will need a little insight into the residential real estate market before relocating to Miami.
Renting versus buying a property is always top of the list of things to consider when moving to another city. I do urge you to think very carefully before you leap into life as a property renter or owner in Miami. The market has had some extreme highs and some extreme lows, and you never want to get caught in the latter. And it is a conf

A few weeks ago I commented on a Facebook post with "Quiet people typically don't change the world." Nevermind what the post was about, it was my comment that created an unexpected and exciting journey through hell and back. Maybe I'm naive, but my comment still doesn't seem harsh. Not even close.
Abstractly stated, the author of the post mentioned that people should speak up and take action if they want change instead of choosing to do nothing only to co

Gary Vaynerchuk is punching social media in the face again with his new book, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook.
The best-selling author of The Thank You Economy and Crush It, and the guy behind WineLibrary.tv — known to nearly every wine professional in North America — is on a sort of clean-up effort after his first two books. Peppering his book with boxing references, Vaynerchuk describes boxing and social media in parallel terms, and explains his mission.
