Sometimes you just learn the things you need to learn from college friends. I was an on-air personality at WRPI FM radio throughout my college days. That experience connected me with musicians, engineers and guys who are still my friends. We share what we learn as we learn it. I find they are so ahead of the curve and am grateful that I'm able to keep up.

A 2009 technology, Sound Cloud, is the latest to come across the WRPI discussion group. We're playing with it and it's becoming a part of our media and marketing efforts.

How many times are we as business professionals so engaged the process of applying our skills to all of our clients, that we neglect to apply them to our own businesses?

You've probably already had the same reasons (excuses) we did - too busy, not enough hours, need those billable hours and more. We're discovering that our productivity is increasing as we apply the very processes that have made our clients successful to our own firm. Simply, we are making time for it. My mother used to say, "you make time for the things that are really important to you - no exceptions."

What's happening is that the clients are gaining a larger benefit from our collective thinking and processes. We've created so much success for them already, we can't even imagine (or we can) how much more success we are going to create for them.

We are here to serve our clients. The better we serve ourselves, the better we will serve them.
