Happy belated 2021 everyone! I noticed it’s been since mid-December when I last blogged something. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything earth-shattering to say. For the first time since September 2019, I hopped on a plane and flew to Nashville. So almost 1.5 years of no travel. It was surreal to be on a plane with […]

Happy mid-December everyone! Seems like yesterday was the beginning of the pandemic in mid-March and now 2021 is right around the corner. Where did the past 9 months go? Please tell me! It’s been quite a year for almost all of us. Thanksgiving came and went. Now, Christmas is almost upon us. Cheers and blessings […]
Happy early Halloween everyone! Adam Stein, an old client and colleague introduced me to Ken Presti, Research Vice President, Analyst & Producer/Host of “AVANT Technology Insights with Ken Presti” podcast. As I mentioned in a previous post, I recently wrote a book, self-published it on Amazon, and was interviewed about the book. The interview was […]
Hey everyone! My 2-year-old “baby” was finally born on October 8, 2020, a few weeks ago. How to Score from First Base! (In Sales): A Step-by-Step Guide to Shorten Sales Cycles and Multiply Revenue is now available via paperback or Kindle. Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1735638307 If you’re a sales, marketing, or lead generation leader or […]
Hey everyone! Fall, football, and school are back in full swing. (Sorta!) It’s odd to see empty NFL stadiums nationwide. The KC Chiefs hold 80,000 seats and they only allowed like 17,000 for their first home game. My kids have done virtual school since September. It’s much better than last spring but they go hybrid […]
Self-published via Amazon that is. Writing a book has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. But like so many other things, it fell into the “someday” category until the Fall of 2018, when I casually mentioned my goal to my long-time friend, Stacy Stephens. With her encouragement and introduction […]
Happy summer everyone! Today is the last day of June! 6 very long months down! 6 more to go! Cheers to the rest of the year. I’m hoping things get smoother! No worries, I won’t be talking about the global pandemic. Or protests either. A few years ago, my wife visited her parents and came […]
Hey everyone! Ray Ruecker with Connect 5000. Seems like 47 years ago we began lockdown/quarantine/shelter-in-place. Yet it was only 2 months ago. Where I live, the Kansas City metro, things are opening up gradually and we are returning to the “new” normal. We’ve eaten out a few times and I also got a new haircut […]
Hey everyone! I hope you and your family are holding up okay in this bizarre, unprecedented, and uncertain season of life we’re ALL experiencing. I unfortunately don’t have anything profound to say that hasn’t been said already. 2 quick quotes that come to mind: “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” – Franklin D. […]
Happy late February everyone! As you may or may not know, the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years! Disclaimer: I’m an avid Denver Broncos fan BUT a big fan of Head Coach Andy Reid and their quarterback Patrick Mahomes. According to CBS Sports, the Chiefs were the […]
