Driving home from the airport and listening to sports talk radio, the
discussion was on great play-by-play sports broadcasters. To my delight, one
of my favorites was on the panel voicing his opinions — and, it DOES have
an impact on your career and business!
Indianapolis is lucky because one of the great radio basketball announcers
has made his career calling the games of the Indiana Pacers. His name is Mark
Boyle, and it would be difficult to find anyone better at his craft. I’ve
met Mark a couple of times, and he’s a great guy. And, I was really

I was sitting in my local Starbucks, staring at my laptop wondering how to
begin this blog. Then, as I looked around me, I noticed my fellow customers
– students studying, Moms taking a little break, professionals such as
myself getting a little work done outside the office on a wireless high-speed
Internet connection and couples on their way to or from a day of golf – and

Right now, I am a customer at a coffee shop. So, I came here to get a cup of
coffee, right? Well, yes and no. I certainly have the coffee I purchased

Quick note from my iPhone — my friend (and my wife’s high school
classmate) Kevin Mullet told me over the weekend that he had just been
approved for Google Voice.
I was SO jealous! If you haven’t explored what it will do — you need to
take a look, and apply, right away! (Check it out here!
Google GIVES you a phone number FREE! Then, you program in your existing
numbers. When someone calls your Google number, it rings ALL your phones.
You’ll only need one number again…ever. And, it doesn’t matter if your
home or cell or office numbers change. The Google Voice number will always
