Infrastructure is the base of any great company

Grabbing an idea from Seth Godin (who else??) about this same subject, infrastructure is often demise in face of other urgent premises, like to have a business plan in place, hire the necessary people, etc, etc… When I mention infrastructure, as Seth also pointed out, it’s not only about get an office and build a […]

Marketing is not Playing Dumb and Think You Can Get Away With It

I was checking my emails when my wife pass by me and rumbles something about how obnoxious some hotels are. It’s not so common for her to say that (believe me) so I asked what’s happened?

Predictions for 2015 are Easy, Difficult is to Change Your Future

It’s that time of the year again. When everyone writes posts about what 2015 it’s going to be, and their wishes for the future. I guess, this is what I’m doing right now but with a twist. It’s not a romantic version or even a depressing one. Maybe realistic. Remember, this is due to my […]

We’re not in some crisis or having a lot of difficulties to place food in the table according to what you see in day […]

How Teens and College Youngsters Can Possibly Have a Relationship

I was reading this piece from Melissa Lafsky Wall and it really interested me. In paradox it was not about the way women relate into their sex lives, but in fact as teenagers and college students even consider a relationship.

Portuguese Calling Stupid Other Portuguese People

This post should be made in Portuguese, but since this blog is in English due to my international projects, it’s also a great way for foreigners trying to understand the Portuguese way of life.
