Right Tool?

11/29/2010 I played with the Houston Aeros and the Canadian Club of Houston (CCoH) in the first annual Canucks & Pucks Golf Classic to benefit Bo’s Place (a bereavement center offering grief support services to children and their families who have experienced the death of a child or an adult in their immediate family) and the Houston Aeros Tickets for Kids Program. We had a great time! And yes, that is a hockey stick!

What Book Has Changed Your Professional Life?

This might seem out of left field. “Into Thin Air” is a personal account of the Mt. Everest Disaster in 1997 written by Jon Krakauer. This book clearly demonstrates how leadership, strategic planning, and team work are so critical to success. I encourage everyone who works with me to read it.



I recently read about an initiative called Mobilize which could have a significant impact on SMEs/SMBs if it takes off. I haven’t explored it in detail yet but it sounds interesting!
