Pursuing a Marketing Career - UMSL Panel Discussion

30September14

My friend, Professor Perry Drake, convinced me that I might have a nugget or two to offer as part of a panel discussion at the University of Missouri, St. Louis. Drake has done an incredible job in connecting the dots between students, faculty, administration and the community. This is just one example. So, on the afternoon [...]

Overcoming Sustainability Fatigue (Part 2)

25September14

Sustainability Fatigue: “A point of numbness, of apathy, of indecision, or plain confusion about why, how and when to act to take better care of our shared environment, both the natural and built aspects.”
While the Green Movement mainstreamed over the last ten years, the environmental and societal challenges we face haven’t gotten any easier nor has [...]

Overcoming Sustainability Fatigue (Part 1)

24September14

Recently I have been thinking about sustainability fatigue as an architect, planner, interior designer and strategist. I’m tired, confused and want to keep doing the right thing. I want to ”soften the hard landing“ of our changing climate and its multitude of effects on our regions, our environment and our communities. Maybe writing about something getting in [...]

23September14

Whether 2008 was the worst or not, it definitely had an impact on most of us. I don’t know if what I was experiencing was a prelude to the recession, but there were unsettling signs in my world. When “bad” things happen, there are those who stick their heads in the sand and those who [...]

What You Can Learn From the Crash of 2008 (Part 1)

19September14

Ben Bernanke, the former head of the Federal Reserve, said the 2008 financial crisis was the worst in global history, surpassing even the Great Depression. His statement is raising eyebrows. While the “Great Recession” was scary, there’s a reason it wasn’t dubbed a depression: Bernanke’s aggressive policy response. “Arguably, the financial shocks of 2008 were bigger [...]

The Heart of the Matter (Part 2)

18September14

Design is the mother of intention. Our physical places and spaces for better or worse reflect over-arching corporate business attitudes.

I admire the new Trader Joe’s for many reasons, but my heart lies with Healthy Living Market. Here’s why.

What is stopping you from getting to your customer? (Part 3)

16September14

One research study cited a customer searching for a “stain removal solution.” According to Google, when it comes to stains, the most searched topic is “how to remove red wine.” If you’re in the carpet cleaning business, knowing the answer to this would be a home run.
