New Book Out
I have a new book out. They say that variety is the spice of life and in my new book you will find no ghosts nor paranormal happenings. No, its a business book written with my business partner Patrick Reames. The book is called ETRM/CTRM Software Markets 2014 – A Year in Review.

Working for yourself is great fun. You can be creative, pick your own hours, choose who to work with and what to do. The problem is that you have to generate cash too. That’s the tricky part. I have always been quite good at sales. If anything, I tend to oversell. GivenRead More »
