This morning I read a post featuring Mark Zuckerberg and his take on whether he wanted to build a Facebook Phone. What was interesting is the nugget I gleaned from it. It is the reason, I shuttered my graphics and web-development company. First look at...

Dear Clients and Friends, As many of you know my grandfather has been in hospice for about 6 weeks now. In fact for many of those weeks we moved our offices to the hospice to take care of him. On last Tuesday morning he transitioned to glory. My grandfather Olin Clark was an integral part of my life. Many times the only man and role model I had growing up.

He taught me how to skin a rabbit, clean fish, and even got me to eat possum (one time only). Boy he liked to eat. After we moved away, I remember coming back home and cooking him fried green tomatoes. When my grandfather came to live with my family about 10 years ago, it was then I learned some of my life's most valuable lessons. I will share a few with you.
