It’s been a few years since I updated my personal site. I’ve spent time writing and consulting directly with others that this site was never a priority. Though in 2022 I’m going to revive it and start posting items and perspectives from work I’ve done over the past few years. I started life at a magazine writing and I tend to forget how much I enjoy it.
Covid certainly has taken a toll on many of us and it’s been good to get back into a groove of video meetings though it’s been even better to have some in-person meet-ups over the past few months. I’ve had a chance to attend the Hospitality Upgrade CIO conference in addition to the HITEC and a few other smaller gatherings which I’ll talk about in another post. For now, I’ll tease with the above.
I also want to highlight the books I have given out at the end of 2020 and 2021. I usually give out the best book I’ve read to business associates at the end of the year. Something I started a few years ago.
In 2020, the book was BE 2.0 (BEYOND ENTREPRENEURSHIP 2.0) by Jim Collins and Bill Lazier. The 1.0 book was a favorite and I have given that to friends starting and building companies for several years. Jim Collins did an excellent job refreshing and adding the expertise of his other books into this revision.
In 2021, it was Ray DalioRay Dalio Author, American billionaire investor, and hedge fund manager. Founder of investment firm Bridgewater. Author of Principles series of books’s Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order. Though it was a last-minute swap out for another which I’ll discuss in another post. His book is one I have already read through 3 times researching several of the items he discusses. You may not agree with all his points, and that may be the purpose, the points he makes are worthy of thought.
I shall endeavor to put more of my writings here as much as I do for clients and startups I come in contact with. More is yet to come.
