Memories and Missed Opportunities

  Rarely do I write blogs that talk overtly about what we do, and ever rarer do I recommend anyone to hire us. As a former staff member of ours would say, “it is way too pitchy.” That being said, a recent conversation nudged me to write this, so I ask your indulgence just this […]

Picking a venue…make sure you ask the right questions

  There are so many GREAT venues! Each one of them has their own special thing that makes it perfect for an event. For some it is all about location, others are more about ambiance, and for some of these places it is all about the food. Different venues will lend themselves to different tastes, […]

Networking is Alive and Well

  Does anyone still believe in face-to-face networking? That was a question posted on one of the many social media driven business groups that I somehow find myself in. Stupid question I thought, and I deleted the email that alerted me to the post. Of course face-to-face networking is still alive. Why would anyone ask […]

Tips for Planning that Signature Spring or Early Summer Event

It is hard as I sit here wearing 7 layers of clothes and tripping over the snow blower in my garage, to think about May graduation parties and June weddings, but that is, in fact, what I am thinking about. These events should be some of the best times for the families hosting them and […]

Inspiration in Strange Places

We find inspiration in strange places and often when we least expect it. Of course one can get inspiration from listening to a Martin Luther King speech or a poignant political address. Some clearly found inspiration from the Million Women’s March or other rallies held around the globe. Believe it or not, I found inspiration […]


The Real Deal

Several weeks ago we got an invitation to the Stoughton Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting and Luncheon with featured speaker Maria Stephanos. If you are not from New England or specifically from the Boston area, her name may not be familiar to you. She is a news anchor on channel 5 in Boston and has […]


To resolve or not to resolve, that is the question.

Many years ago I made my very last New Year’s Resolution. Surprisingly I have actually stuck to it. You may be thinking it was to lose weight, be a better husband or father, be kinder to animals, or donate more to charity. While all of those are great, my resolution was to never make resolutions […]
