2020 Changes

Posted on | March 20, 2020 | No Comments

A friend posted “I apologize to 2019 for all the bad things I said about it.” I agree. 2020 has been a challenge already, and there’s more to come.

For the last few years I’ve been working full-time in several marketing, sales, and business development jobs. I’ve kept my license to practice law active and have been helping a few long-time clients with several things on the side as I had time.

As of early March, I’m back in the freelance mode as lawyer, artist, business advisor, coach, mediator, and counselor. I’ll be ramping up the law practice again. You’ll also be seeing new posts at on my artistic/creative ventures, and probably even some at when I have time to write.

As those of you who know me understand, I always have a bunch of ideas in progress, and this is still the case. There are a few new things that I’ll be sharing in the next few weeks, pending the whole Virus adventure allows.

Yes, I’m Still Helping Creative Business Clients

Posted on | September 3, 2013 | No Comments

It’s been a busy couple of years.  I’m still working with ACT, Inc. (You probably know ACT as the college testing company). I’m in the National Programs group and help create and manage large-scale collaborations. 

Every week I am asked if I’m still taking on legal work. Most of the time, I have to say “not that type” and refer the work out to other attorneys. But I do say “yes” to some projects.  Those projects tend to be trademark, copyright, and creative businesses that are doing something that interests me.  The trademark and copyright projects are usually handled project-by-project. But the creative business relationships (formation, consulting, contracts, etc.) are being limited to the clients who want to work on my year-long flat monthly fee basis.  

Feel free to email me if you have any questions or need to see if I’m available to help.

Making Big Changes in 2012

Posted on | January 6, 2012 | No Comments

2012 is off to a fantastic start with two major changes. The short version is that I’ve accepted two opportunities that will allow me to help a lot more people align who they are with what they do for a living. Fittingly, I’ll also be better aligning who I am as a person with what I do for a living.

ACT: Director, Client Outreach – Mountain Plains Region

First, I’ve joined ACT, Inc. (you recognize the name in the context of college entrance exams) as the Director of Client Outreach for the Mountain Plains Region.  I’ll be using my problem-solving skills to help educators use all of the company’s assessment solutions to improve college and career readiness throughout the K-12 experience.  I’m very excited about this because (if you’ve been paying any attention to my work over the past decade) I’m passionate about embracing what I call “whole-brain” thinking. ACT had created some programs that go well beyond the standard left-brain academic assessment model into critical “non-cognitive” assessments (learning behaviors, habits, skills, etc.) that I believe have been largely overlooked. The opportunity to be part of a forward thinking organization will allow me to focus and improve my core strengths in an area I believe vitally important and is something I am blessed to accept.
