The return of the polymath: The best is yet to come (summer hiatus)

Last September, I set a rule for myself: that I would blog every Wednesday, allowing me to publish on a schedule and to reserve the blogging for good stuff that inspires me, rather than putting up something every day just to get something up. And I've stuck to it, but I'm taking the summer off […]

How not to ask for business advice. Plus: Where to get business cards

Where can I get a business cards? Thanks Here are the things that bother me about this message. Don't make an inquiry by text message unless […]

Promoting vs. Engaging

There's a product I've been following the last couple of months, and, while I find it intriguing, I haven't tried it. It's called Fitness Coffee – a coffee meant to aid in weight loss (my best guess is there's some additive, probably natural or near-natural, designed to kick your metabolism into high gear). They're fairly […]

Clark's Ale House, which has been a local favorite since the mid-1990s, is closing on Saturday. Let's first talk about Clark's. It's a small, two-level pub with primarily ales on tap.

Chasing your passion

I'd say I'm not a big fan of motivational, go chase your dream, up and at 'em, how to win at business and life books, but really I don't read them, so I don't know for sure that I'm not a fan. And then I found Gary Vaynerchuk on Twitter. The dude has passion, and […]

More take-aways from Chris Hughes

Yesterday, I did sort of an entrepreneur-focused piece on Chris Hughes' visit to Syracuse. I went into the office (I work for syracuse.com, so the "we" and "our" refers to what we do there) and wound up re-writing from more of a company perspective, and I think everything's still relevant, so I wanted to share […]

Lessons from a young entrepreneur. Or whatever he is.

You might not recognize Chris Hughes' name (of course, you might). Even if not, you've heard of his work. In 2004, he was a sophomore at Harvard when, with a couple of three classmates, he launched a campus-wide social network called, um, Facebook. Yes, that Facebook. The one I don't even have to link to, […]
