The most common objection I’ve heard from customers throughout the years is, “You are the most expensive.” I must be the luckiest the guy on the face of the earth to have only represented the most expensive brands and products in the marketplace! Who knew? Sarcasm aside, that’s obviously not the case. So why was I always hearing that I was the most expensive? More importantly, what did I do about it?

Earlier this week with friends in Venice for the end of Carnevale. Thousands of people milling around St Mark’s Square watching the processions.

There is a real buzz in the city, and the unseasonal warm weather and blue sky was the cherry on the cake. We couldn't stop smiling.

The UK Government announced last week, a string of reforms designed to change the way that prisons operate. One of the key areas is the way that prisoners earn privileges. Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said: "In the past, we've sent the wrong message. "From November, inmates must "actively earn privileges" and are being warned a simple absence of bad behavior will "not be enough"...

Negotiating Thanksgiving

I have 24 people coming to my house for Thanksgiving. My family, in-laws, friends, and friends of friends. Everyone is bringing something to contribute to dinner. There is one dish they will all have in common and that’s opinion. Some will have one about the food, others about politics, some about each other, but they will all bring their opinions. I won’t agree with them all but I’ll probably hear them all! Here’s how I’m planning to negotiate Thanksgiving and all those opinions.
