In preparing for the 2014 Jumpstart Challenge, I reread the Community Guidelines.  Since I've been a member of this remarkable ensemble at ActiveRain from the very start, and have witnessed its growth from a fledgling group of industry professionals reaching out to interact in a new arena, I've s...

After a disastrous experience for Long Islanders last year in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, LIPA (Long Island Power Authority) was in the crosshairs for their inability to handle the crisis.  In a class action lawsuit brought by angry consumers, many without power for weeks after the storm, t...

The things I needed to do on this second day of January, 2014, could more easily and effectively be accomplished from home, so I decided to don my far less worldly attire as I parked myself at my computer, iPhone an easy reach away.  It was all about finishing a few projects and tying up some loo...

December was a month of projects.  It was a time to get a lot of unfinished work done in my own home.  It was a time for family and friends, and to sew up loose ends.  I worked diligently to those ends, freeing myself up for the challenges I face in the new year. 2014 will be a year of renewal fo...

This was what I awoke to see yesterday as mother nature gave us a break from chilly temperatures.  I was on my way to an early appointment when I had to stop the car to try to capture the beauty in the fog.  Interestingly, try as I might, the camera and I were seeing two different scenes.  The f...

This couldn't have come at a better time for me.  It is a time of growth and re-imagining myself and my business as we enter into the final lap of the race toward 2014.  I've recognized for a long time that my online persona has been getting long in the tooth and lackluster.  I, who have been on ...

I always thought people who, sleep deprived, stood, sat, or camped out, often in bitter cold to get one of those crazy Black Friday bargains were nuts. Nothing could be worth the physically challenging opportunity to acquire that which one might or might not need.  That was until this year. They ...

Today was a day of revelations as much as thanksgiving for me.  This year was not about a table overfilled with delectible goodies, prepared lovingly by relatives young and old.  The venue was not a crowded, cacaphonous room, filled with frenetic activity, save for the adorable little boy who dec...

Thanksgiving is making me more nostalgic than ever this year, perhaps because my kids are thousands of miles away, or maybe it's just a function of growing older.   I thought I'd resurrect a post I wrote about it years ago.  It is as true of the way I feel today as it was then.  It is also a remi...
