Remembering Evelyn McNeillnc expatevelyn and me

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 18:13:44 +0000

In the “old days” of the web, occasionally you would come across a subject that hadn’t been covered before and if you wrote about it, you could quickly become authoritative on the subject. There was an altruism to the whole endeavor as sometimes you were surfacing history that was not broadly known. See this old…Read more Remembering Evelyn McNeill(image)

Becoming an advisor to Bandcampnc expat

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 15:15:55 +0000

Just a few weeks ago, I wrote that I wasn’t making any significant commitments until the end of 2017, including advisory roles. Well, I should have put an asterisk on that. Earlier this week, I signed up as an advisor to Bandcamp and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  This formal advisory role happened…Read more Becoming an advisor to Bandcamp(image)

Mon, 15 May 2017 13:22:18 +0000

Update 9/21/2017 (original post from 05/15/2017 below): Since I posted this originally about four months ago, a lot has happened. Almost no one who was in my position as a CEO ever writes openly about life after a big, difficult change. From the very beginning, such changes are typically slathered in the conventional PR sheen of…Read more What’s next?(image)

Words of advice to inside sales people prospecting busy CEOsnc expat

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 12:54:04 +0000

If you’re an executive at a company and are in any way accessible, you’re on the receiving end of dozens of email pitches for products and services every week. Most of these come from what are known as “inside sales” people, i.e. sales people who start at the top of the funnel to find qualified…Read more Words of advice to inside sales people prospecting busy CEOs(image)

Why liberal arts education matters: the story of a Drucker (mis-)quotenc expat

Sun, 03 Feb 2013 14:50:19 +0000

When I did the Pando Monthly interview last week, I was asked to talk about the one thing I believe that almost no one else believes. I said that a liberal arts education is as important, or even more important, than a math and science education (here’s the clip). Some people thought that I was…Read more Why liberal arts education matters: the story of a Drucker (mis-)quote(image)

I have been following Occupy Sandy and am both amazed and moved by the efforts of those who are organizing and helping.

LBJ on the use of powernc expatLBJ_civil_rights

Fri, 06 Jul 2012 12:47:44 +0000

The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Robert Caro’s five-part (though the fifth has yet to be written) biography of LBJ, is an incredible chronicle of a truly complex leader, one who clearly cheated all along the way to the presidency but also showed incredible leadership in passing landmark civil rights legislation. This passage from Caro’s fourth…Read more LBJ on the use of power(image)
