Finally made the leap! But have an issue

Well I started a business after years of looking for the right place for me. I have started making custom carved signs and other wood/corian items.WWW.MANCAVECARVINGS.COMMy issue is that after starting the business and getting my name out there more people (friends/family) have come forward wanting jobs completed for free. Well obviously economically this is not going to work. But on the other hand to get my name out there I would like people to…See More

Living for the dollar

Posted on December 15, 2008 at 12:51am 1 Comment

I am currently reading (actually listening to) a book about a very wealthy man in the United States. This man has made deals that would put most in shock. But after looking past the great deal of wealth, awesome business deals, and business ethics. The disturbing part of the book is that he is only doing so for the ultimate dollar. I had a hard time starting to listen to the book again today just because of that fact. I did, and only to learn more about the processes and reasoning behind some… Continue

Do your hands sweat?

I am all about innovation and changing the way we all think. But below is an article about a new product that well lets say I don't understand. Just check it out for yourself:



techshout.com: Thanko, a company known for its innovative products has rolled out a new keyboard. According to FarEastGizmos, the computer peripheral has a built-in fan to keep users’ hands cool.

Many times users’ hands sweat due to the prolonged usage of the keyboard, especially in the humid conditions.… Continue

Ice Vending

Posted on December 12, 2008 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

As you can see I like the vending industry. Its mostly low maintenance and less customer interaction. Another benefit while I plug the industry is that you can put off a big business look while you sit in your "office" at home and count your money.

I found (actually my brother found) a neat opportunity within the Ice Vending, yah I said it Ice Vending. Think of how many times you spent in the parking lot of a gas station or convience store banging a large bag of ice on the ground to get it… Continue

KIOSK KIOSK KIOSK

Posted on December 12, 2008 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Some of you know what a Kiosk is and some do not. Well for those who don't a Kiosk is that small cart like "shop" in isle at the mall. Anyways, I was walking through the mall the other day and saw something that was pretty neat. Someone took a "claw machine" and modified it so that you could have 4 users at once, and made it into a kiosk. It got me thinking about what other types of businesses could be molded in a fashion that they also could be kiosks. Here are some of the benefits and… Continue

Yup, I love golf. I really find it to be very relaxing for the most part. My job, the management side of the biz, has been a bit of drag lately though. As I analyze it, I think that it just may be the company that I work for. So, do you play often? What is your favorite thing about golf?
