Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Heard about Years ago on Dan's Podcast.

Since then I've been thrilled to connect with like minded professionals to share resources, idea and inspiration. There are enough forces working against us, we need to work together.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Own and run 2 companies:

An eCommerce direct to patient, B2C eCommerce company that helps people as they recover on one foot . GoodbyeCrutches.com

Also coach, consult and lead Mastermind Groups on how to how to use content and an Inbound Strategy to attract, engage and delight customers.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To build this and other companies so that I can serve ever more people: customers and team members. Ultimately being rewarded with long term wealth for me and my family.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I used to dream of retiring, but the older I get the more I am enjoying my business life (can't call it work). My dream is to use my talents to do creative things with friends until the Lord call me home. My proudest accomplishment and most cherished thing is my family, including my first Granddaughter born in June 2014.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Type A overachiever. Gallup says I'm a Maximizer, Activator, Achiever, Individualist and a Mentor. DISC says I'm a a high D, I. I continue to learn and build on a diverse background that only makes sense in the rear view mirror: Naval Officer (yes I ran nuclear reactors on the largest ship), corporate world, sales, management, entrepreneur.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.inboundforecommerce.com/
More than one website?
http://www.inboundmovement.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:

FIRE FOR EFFECT: What the Navy taught me about being an Entrepreneur

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 9:30am 1 Comment

One of the classic images of the Navy is the Battleship firing all guns broadside.  You can see the flames and the shock wave.  You can imagine the impact of the 16 inch shells.  Nine projectiles, each weighing as much as your car, simultaneously hit a target over 10 miles.

This iconic image taught me more about marketing than I learned in my MBA.  Since you paid for my college education…

Why April 11th is not Independence Day

Posted on July 4, 2014 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

Have you ever considered that we mark our nation's Independence Day on the day we declared it, not the day someone else acknowledged it?

  • On July 4, 1776 we declared independence
  • On April 11, 1783 Great Britain acknowledged it.

When our founding fathers decided the only thing they were certain was that the following days were going to be tough....very tough.  Yet we remember being free when we decided, not when someone else…

If you're not a salesman, then artist don't exist

Posted on June 22, 2014 at 5:30am 3 Comments

Recently I met a friend who proudly and definitively declared "I am not a salesman"  While he had successfully sold in the past, certain areas of sales clashed with his very being.  Things like cold calling and high pressure sales made him so uncomfortable that he concluded he was not, and could never be a salesman.

What if we used his same criteria to define artists.  Was Picasso an artist?  Sure he could paint and sculpt, but what about the other areas of art.  Could he create art…

Hi Tom, thank you for your welcome to the community a while back and your helpful comments. Sorry for my very late reply. Yes, the Boston/Cambridge area is chock-full of technology companies. I am hoping to learn a lot from 48days.net community members regardless of their location, and am looking forward to that experience. Thanks again!
