We've been wonderfully busy here at the office, and quite frankly, I haven't had time to work on a blog post.  So, I decided to let me kids do one instead.  No, not really.  But, this blog post is inspired by my children.  More accurately, this blog post is inspired by my children's artistic style and their corresponding personalities.

business focus

I was recently in a conversation about a local company who has a very narrow specialty.  They do really nice work, but I'm afraid that their business model is bad ... for anyone.  Though they do their work really well, in order to get it they do everyone else's work really poorly.  I made the statement, "In order to get your business, they're willing to walk you dog."  Walking your client's proverbial dog is a bad idea for you, your client and everyone else too.

The Birth of a Superhero

Six years ago my eldest son was born.

He and I bonded the second time I held him.  Seriously, I looked down at him, and he looked back, and we gave each other the look as if to say, "I understand you."  His was the look that you give your dad when you are a preteen and you don't want your dad to talk about certain things in front of your mom.  Mine was the return look that indicates that I know; I've been there.

He's a great kid – smart as a whip.  We have a lot of fun together reading and playing and just talking.  Fatherhood has been so much better than I ever could have imagined, and I set the bar pretty high.

We decided to do a themed party this year, and he chose Superheroes.  So, we are going to WAY too much trouble to throw him an awesome party that he is sure to forget.  But it doesn't matter; it's a labor of love.  I love my son, and I love doing things for him.  He's my kiddo.  He's my heart.  He's my son.

Happy birthday, Zachariah.
