The year is 1987. Michael Jackson’s “Bad” reigned on the Billboard Charts, a gallon of gas was $0.89 and Ryan Oliver Alexander Rosado (R.O.A.R.) was born.

A few years ago it seemed like working for a government contractor was the way to go.  But as government agencies are doing more tasks internally and as Congress is cutting budgets left and right (especially for the DoD), government contractors are becoming more and more disposable.  I have had the eye-opening experience of working […]

I think I speak for most people today when I say our friends on Facebook or people we follow on Twitter sometimes deliver news faster than say CNN or Fox News.

If Dan Zarella’s latest webinar could be summed up in an analogy it would be compared to the Show “How’s It’s Made.”  A webinar about how to efficiently create a successful webinar. This past Wednesday, Dan Zarella hosted “The Science of Webinars” with the assistance of James Hillard of Citrix, a webinar hosting service.  For […]
