The Total Package – Make it simple for the user

Mike Filsaime, whom I consider a friend and most definitely a mentor, was once telling me about creating “buttons.” What he meant by this is similar to Staple’s Easy Button — The idea that as business owners and entrepreneurs, we should provide our consumers with solutions that are push button simple.

Bridging the Technology Gap

With the launch of iBizTraining.com rapidly approaching, I’m excited to see how it impacts the lives of people who pretend to be totally inept in dealing with technology.
