It is officially summer (Although on the day I’m writing this it’s only 65 degrees and I’m wearing a hoodie – Welcome to Oregon) and it has been 1 year since I became a partner with Greg on the Southern Oregon Business Journal.  A lot has happened in that year. We completely rebooted the journals…

This is Greg’s last issue. He is retiring and we are focusing a good portion on this month’s journal on what he created. I’ll miss working with him, but I completely understand and appreciate why he decided to retire earlier than we planned. It’s just time. He wants to travel and the pressure of a…

In another month I will no longer be an owner of the Southern Oregon Business Journal. That doesn’t mean articles or commentary won’t be included in future issues. Jim Teece has expressed an interest in keeping space available for comments from the Founder. That is me. Thanks to him there will be no sudden disappearing…

I feel like I spent every hour of every day last month, online in Zoom meetings.No travel. No in-person face-to-face meetings. No boundaries.Working from home now means working 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.I’m in one-on-one meetings with prospective clients and full staff meetings and I attended the Medford Chamber’s first-ever monthly forum…

Let’s make a promise to ourselves, you and me.From the next time we receive any kind of payment in cash, check, or by electronic deposit, put some of it away for a rainy day that we will not touch for any reason other than a crisis. Even a couple of thousand dollars in savings has…

I’m usually a fan of disruption. I have been a disrupter in several industries myself and have had my own share of disruptions over the years that have forced my companies to reboot or die. But this might have put me over the edge.  As I have been putting up news on the website on…

The good thing about tomorrow is that we haven’t made a mess of it yet. Our high and mighty thinking of ourselves is too grand to realize how little we actually know, …about anything.  A decade from now what we lecture today will be obsolete. All we really know is what we didn’t in the…

The easing of winter weather brings with it a sigh of relief. Shrouded in conflicting headlines about economies at every level and the projections on the near and distant term at once favorable and in the next moment dire, consumers have been dubious about so-called expert opinions. Disquieting anxiety may plague conversations in coffee circles,…

I bring 30 years of tech entrepreneurship to this journal that Greg started 5 years ago. I have a lot of knowledge, wisdom, and guidance to share to the southern Oregon business community. Being an innovative entrepreneur also means I can be stubborn, tenacious, direct, and laser-focused at times and I can be a challenge…

The first month of 2020 is gone. Poof. Just like that. I’m not sure where it went. It’s been a very active month for Greg and I. I have been handing out copies of the print version and I love watching small business owners flip through it and find articles that interest them and how…

Southern Oregon momentum toward inclusion in state and regional conversations is picking up steam. From Lincoln City to Brookings Harbor on the Oregon coast and Klamath Falls to Prineville along Highway 97 and east to Vale near the Idaho border there has been significant acceptance of what the future will demand and provide. Change is…

Its hard to believe four years have passed since the launching of the Southern Oregon Business Journal on August 10, 2015. But it has. The nine months leading up to the first publication was filled with enthusiasm and encouragement from many people for whom I have great respect and admiration. And too, from Dede who…
