How I get the most out of business conferences

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 14:30:14 +0000

I’m writing this from my hotel room at MicroConf, which is a conference for bootstrappers and entrepreneurs who are building (mostly) solo businesses like mine. I’m here because some of the smartest people I know—and lots of smart people I don’t yet know—are here, and I want to learn from them. But I’m also pretty […]

The three biggest mistakes I made in my first 10k race

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 20:37:51 +0000

I visited Charleston, SC for my first 10k race last weekend and it was a lot of fun. If I’m being honest, my main motivation was to eat lots of delicious Charleston food, and my penance for all that delicious food was running a 10k. “Josh, we’re going to run a 10k in a few […]

6 Bootstrapping lessons learned from a 20+ year veteran business owner

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 19:56:10 +0000

“So how are things with the book?” The context for this question from my Dad? I’d been up and down all week about bootstrapping my business. So I told him the plan and told him about the opportunities coming up (both detailed at the end of the article). “So I should have a much better […]

Is there anything GOOD about Tax Day?

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:31:02 +0000

I just finished my 2016 taxes. Tax Day is one of the few times I look backwards to measure my progress. The two big questions I always ask myself are “Was this year better than last year?” and “What can I do to make next year even better?” I still do this every year now […]

Have you ever been this excited about a couple dollars of candy?

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 13:18:08 +0000

I like movies, and I really like Oscars season. I usually try to watch all the Best Picture nominees, although I didn’t quite make it this year. I know what you’re thinking: “He’s going to write something about how Warren Beatty messed up the Best Picture award. 🙄” I’ll be honest: I did consider that. […]

It’s your job to help them focus

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 13:09:31 +0000

I finally got to go to a basketball game at the Gators’ new Exactech Arena (most of us call it the O’Dome) here in Gainesville. It’s fantastic. The seats are more comfortable, the layout is better (not a bad seat in the house), and the overall experience is better. But before I can tell you […]

I hope you didn’t notice

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 12:51:20 +0000

I studied Computer Engineering as an undergrad student at the University of Florida, and then later I went back for my MBA (Go Gators!). So it’s no surprise that I spend my days doing a mix of engineering and business administration. Last month was a little unusual because I was almost entirely focused on a […]

I couldn’t figure it out on my own

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 12:49:11 +0000

My friends invented a game called Trashcan Ball. It’s a mash-up of soccer, lacrosse, and basketball. You score by putting the ball in the other team’s trashcan. The equipment (they didn’t get too clever with the name) You can carry the ball, throw it, or kick it, but if you get tagged while you’re holding […]

How to get a raise on purpose

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 12:36:05 +0000

My first job out of high school was a summer gig at a mortgage lender. They paid me $8.50 an hour to do “t-patching”, which was basically organizing boxes of mortage files so they could be scanned onto microfiche. (Yeah, this was a little while ago, but not that long ago. Even when I was […]

Your career isn’t a jog or a sprint

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 12:28:34 +0000

Are you familiar with “interval training”? I’ve been doing a lot more of it lately. Basically, instead of exercising at one pace for a long time, I work really hard for shorter amounts of time, then rest in between bursts. I like it because it keeps me from getting bored and there’s some evidence that […]
