Welcome to Thoughts From The Coffee Table!

You might say this is my Blog, but it is a little different than you might be used to.  In these stories, I seek to promote and highlight the best examples I find of leadership, sales, customer experiences, and humanity.

I am looking for those of us performing to our best.

I publish every Monday through Friday, except holidays. Everyone, including me, needs and deserves a day off!

Why do I call it Thoughts From The Coffee Table?  I found myself sitting down on my couch to write this each morning, coffee at the ready on my coffee table.  I began to see these morning minutes of quiet as my shock of inspiration.  It seemed right.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: Business meets Altruism meets Disrupter = Why Didn’t I Think of That? If you want to see my head explode then say “But that’s the way we’ve always done it!” I actually forbade people to say it in my presence for awhile, but it never stopped them thinking it. Yet…
