Let's open a can of worms, shall we?

Let's open a can of worms, shall we?

A Red Skelton 1969 video has resurfaced recently on the Internet (of course) that really both moved and confused me. The recording is straight forward enough — a four-minute monologue on the meaning behind saying the Pledge of Allegiance as only Red could express it. Hearing his voice again, and watching him deliver one of this thought pieces, is really a nostalgia trigger for me. So is his message. What confuses me is why it is going around on Facebook, e-mail, etc. And before you post the link, you might want to know more about the "cause group" behind it, too

Two Heros, One Opportunity to Meet Both

Robert Jordan is my hero, which is one of the reasons I am so thrilled to share him with you at the Dane County Small Business Awards program, this year held on the morning of June 18. After you hear him speak — one of two "hero" keynote presenters — I think he'll top your list of memorable people, too.

In the mood to invest in yourself, ladies?

I think you'll have to agree that in 2010, In Business has made a definite commitment to events, including our sponsorship of the upcoming Dane County Small Business Awards and judging support for the Wisconsin Family Business Awards. Maybe you've attended one of our seminars featuring Terry Siebert or Skip Brennan and Craig Culver, or have marked your calendars to join us in August for Marsha Lindsay's seminar on branding? Maybe you were in the audience for our SusainAbility Awards or Commercial Design Awards? Or maybe you'll be joining us for the Extreme Networking Event?

A Picture is Worth ... Several Thousand Clicks, at Least.

A Picture is Worth ... Several Thousand Clicks, at Least.

At IB, we celebrate good photography. And in that spirit, since I think photography is fun as well as practical, and I think that "favorite photos" tell a lot about a person, I've decided to hold an impromptu photo contest. The winners (hopefully, there will be several) will have their photos put on the IB website in the month of June!
