  With the holidays upon us I have been doing a little more work from home then what I normally do. And I figured that I am probably not the only one because even though your office may close down around this time of year it doesn't mean that there are less problems to be solved. When your working from home your personal and work spaces are right ontop of each other which can lead to its own unique set of problems.  I was looking around online and found a good set of points on SitePoint's Blog
  1. Clearly define your work space. - Working from home means that your work space and living space are often one in the same. It’s important that you keep them separate as much as possible, though. If you work while...

Everyone knows one of the most important aspects of business is marketing. This being said, marketing is one of the first things cut back on when the economy gets rough.The obvious reason for this happening is businesses feel they don't have the budget to keep up with their marketing plan.What most people don't realize is that marketing doesn't always mean burning a hole through the company's pocket.

Inspiration comes from all over the place.  My beautiful wife inspires me daily to do the dishes and the laundry (although she more often inspires me to lounge on the couch with her and let the messes pile up).  A lot of our clients are very inspiring with fresh ideas and innovative ways to run their business.  But with design, sometimes the inspiration doesn't come so easily.

These next two are some nice sunset pictures. It's kind of generic...

There's been a lot of talk about deals on the TV lately. So I thought that I would go ahead and make my blog post about finding deals. it's kind of a private passion of mine trying to find the best deal that is online. So I have a few suggestion that might help you guys out. Especially since this is the last week to use standard shipping this before the holidays. if your shopping in an actual store one item that I didn't use until last year was Google SMS all you do is send a text msg to 466453 ("GOOGLE" on most devices). If your in best buy and text them "Price" then a quick product description like "Sony BDP-S300" then they will text you back the cheapest prices they could find it and then you can...
