Driven by tradition or creating tradition?

Changing business focus on the fly meant needing to come up with the logo above.


Presidents Day (Washington’s Birthday) is a catalyst for a nice three day weekend. It’s funny how much we rely on tradition to manage our celebratory days.

AnĀ alluring aspect of becoming an entrepreneur is the notion of calling your own shots. You get to decide when you work and when you don’t.

Looks good on paper.

And when you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work. So all weekend there was plenty of work love going on. First independent, paying gig is in 72 hours. And it happened unbelievably fast, without an infrastructure in place.

Do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do.

Editor’s note (November 9, 2015): The above logo is not being used anywhere at In fact, the logo features “.lead .differently”as the tag line.
