  • Join us for Open Seattle

    I’m getting really pumped for Open Seattle next week. If you live in the Pacific Northwest we’d love to have you. Yesterday, we extended the regular registration deadline until next Monday– so you can still get in for $25! What’s Open Seattle? Open is an experiment.

  • The Fight

    For Rocky & the Karate Kid, they knew who their enemy was. They knew who to train to beat. And they were desperate to win. But what about you… Who is your enemy? What are you fighting for? When is your battle scheduled? 

  • A Parent’s Guide to Social Media

    Last week, I put together a sweet little seminar for parent’s called, A Parent’s Guide to Social Media.
