Leadership & Management — One More Time!

Big Red Car here. Ahh, you know the shtick by now — On Earth as it is in Texas!

Every so often, we find ourselves being drawn into a discussion that is endless.

One such discussion is the ramifications of leadership and management for the startup and small business. It is a continuous discussion.

Moving to the Sound of the Guns, What Marines Do!

Big Red Car here. Another lovely, cool morning in the ATX. Ahhh, on Earth as it is in Texas!
