An old friend of mine, whom I had not seen in a very long time, noticed me sitting behind her at a funeral yesterday, and the first thing she did was hand me her iPhone to show me a photo of her most recent grandchild. She squinched up her nose as if to say, “Is that not the cutest baby you have ever seen in all your life?” At a funeral? Really? You…

Typical behaviors in dementia care that create a need for intervention include:
1. Anger in response to a… Continue

Just prior to the recession of 2008, I became an "unintentional entrepreneur" when my 30 year broadcast management career ended with an organizational restructuring. Due to personal considerations involving elderly parents and adolescent children, we weren't in a position to pull up stakes and move to a new location. Meanwhile, job opportunities in my former industry were non-existent. Lots of Baby Boomers have similar stories.

In business, when you examine your marketing pie, you are probably spending time with different people for… Continue

Eighteen months ago, I inherited my wife’s old BlackBerry and started using it when I was at a convention. Previously, I’d been using an old Nokia as a cellphone just to check messages and to make or receive an occasional call. I didn’t want the outside world to be able to access me during every moment of every day. However, it dawned on me that it would be much easier checking and sending emails from the Blackberry while at the convention rather than lugging around my laptop and searching… Continue
