Insanitekian Way To Do The Holiday Season (And Winter)

Every year I hear the same thing. People feel rushed, they start to dislike family gatherings because of the obligations and “stuff” that they have to do. They have to make time to go present shopping, cook, parties, and all of life’s other tidbits. It’s chaos overload for most of those around me, including the […]

To Thine Own Self Be True

Language is a funny thing. This phrase, originally from Shakespeare, to thine own self be true was meant not as a way to guide one to a righteous life full of goodness, but rather one full of potential selfishness. At least that’s what certain scholars believe. This can be taken as a true form of selfishness […]

Review of Persuasive Profits by Sharí Alexander

In case you didn’t remember, this most recent hiatus from the blog was due to me carving out some time to take Sharí Alexander’s Persuasive Profit’s class. And here is the formal review of said class, as per norm after I finish one of these classes. I am not compensated in any way for this […]

A Tiny Experiment at Insanitek

Over the last few weeks I’ve been taking a great class, Persuasive Profits by Sharí Alexander. It’s been great for forcing my brain to get out-of-the-way and find ways to connect with our potential client base that we could serve. And when I say connect, I don’t mean connect in a caveman way where I […]

With Power Comes Responsibility

I’ve been thinking about this phrase “with power comes responsibility” a lot lately. Perhaps it’s because it’s political hunting season in the US. As I scan the feelings of the crowed, I realise no one here really likes our choices. Yet this is the bed we lie in after decades of apathy built this craziness. I […]

Profiling? It helps get the jobs done.

OK, before you jump down my throat, I’m not talking about racial profiling. I’m talking about good, old-fashioned personality profiling. This isn’t so dissimilar to the type of profiling you have to go through when you enter the job force in any arena or see on TV when the FBI is looking for the newest […]

Newsletters are losing their magic

I get it: I sign up for your newsletter, you’re going to sell to me. You’re going to send me all the info about you, your products, your service, and your world. Part of that world includes your pal’s launches. I know when I sign up for your little opt in, that I’m going to […]

You have to just close your eyes and curse

Seriously. Sometimes you just feel defeated. If that’s the case, you need to close your eyes and curse so you can conquer defeat. This state of being is more than just a simple passage of time. It’s a feeling that takes the wind out of you, leaves you feeling a little forlorn for a while, […]

Getting and Staying Organised Is A Myth

I can already hear the cries now: “Sacrilege!” from the Love-to-Organise-Everything crowd, “Click-bait!” the hopeful naysayers scream. And yet, here you are reading this in hopes that you’re not the only lost cause in a world of cute, hand-made labels with their matching, over priced storage bins. My office is a testament to what happens […]

The Humanity of Business

As I’m sitting here in my home office, I’m consoling a friend that lost an auntie in the Brussel’s terrorist attack. Later that morning, I’m trying to soothe another friend’s nerves because they work at Heathrow airport, and they can’t get it through passenger’s heads about tightened security. Both need more right now in terms […]
