You might call it evolution - growing up - learning - pivoting - developing - tacking - zigging - zagging - you get the idea.  But whatever you call it, one thing is certain, it involves 'change'.  Major change, actually. 2014 is the year that Snoloha makes a dramatic change in it's day-to-day existence and strategy moving forward. This is something that I've been working on for a while now and it's starting to make

Recently you were introduced to Paxton, SnoMon's 'motivationally challenged' penguin buddy. People seemed to be intrigued with Paxton, so I thought it made sense to let everyone get to know him a bit more. As you already know, the name "Paxton" is of English origin and means “from the peaceful farm”.  And you also learned that although he's not from a farm, he takes peaceful to a whole new level. So who is Paxton? He

There's snow on the ground here in Traverse City, Michigan. That means a number of things: My back will soon begin to hurt from shoveling It's time to Build a SnoMon for the BUY. BUILD. BELIEVE. project Christmas is on the horizon. Time to start shopping. Time to dust off the snowboard and snowshoes And I should probably get that sailboat covered and out of the driveway to make my wife happy...but that'll make our

You didn't think SnoMon lived a solo, lonely existence...did you? Nope.  SnoMon has quite the full life.  He's surrounded by an eclectic group of characters that keep him young at heart some days...and other days, well, he sometimes feels like he's about to have a meltdown, quite literally. You thought SnoMon was laid-back...wait until you get to know his longtime pal, Paxton.  Paxton is a fitting name, it is of English origin and means “from

It's my birthday today.  39 years young.  No big deal.  Not one of the cool ones, like 18 or 21 or the big 4-0.  Just another trip around the sun. It's fun to reflect though, and I think having a 3-year-old daughter makes it even more fun.  You know kids, they get a kick out of birthdays, so you end up getting a bigger kick out of 'em too, hopefully. One of the things that

I've gotta be a shrink's dream-come-true...now to find a shrink! I've got so much going on in my head, it's ridiculous.  It's to the point that there's not room for some very basic things.  My daughter goes to daycare with 5 other kids.  You think that after 3 years of doing the 'daycare dash' that I can remember their names?  Thankfully she can.  I can't remember to eat breakfast or lunch most days.  And I've

Self-imposed deadlines that are not met and a new website not allowing you to purchase new products.  No, I'm not talking about Congress...I'm talking about ME!  And typing that comparison out for all to read...is kinda depressing. But it's true.  My original goal was to have new products, a new website and the BUY. BUILD. BELIEVE. project ready to go by the start of November. We are close, though.  New products will be here soon,

I'm a firm believer in ESCAPISM.  In doses.  Escapism from the realities of everyday life, every now and then. I'm not talking about drowning your sorrows in a brown bottle, or running away to the islands and leaving your problems behind (sure, it sounds romantic...but those problems will find you). I'm talking about doses of forgetting about the bills, the crowds, the traffic, the 24/7 news media, the social media, the homework, the work work,

This was a blog post that I originally wrote last year: From an article in USA Today, "A record $8 billion will be spent by U.S. consumers this Halloween — most of it by adults, for adults". "It's a way for people to try to be more themselves," he says. Even as adults in costumes play out their fantasies, it's as if they're actually saying, "I'm behind a mask, but this is really who I

As you already know (or perhaps you don't), SnoMon is back and is under contract with Snoloha.  He signed a ludicrous longterm deal with a guaranteed salary, a bonus structure based on performance,  royalties for perpetuity and final say on any Snoloha marketing and products bearing his resemblance.  He has an excellent agent...and I'm a horrible negotiator. One of the areas that SnoMon was more than willing to help, and had absolutely zero restrictions, was

The development of SnoMon continues to take shape.  It's fun.  I hope he makes the impact that I envision him making. Right now I am in the process of putting together the BUY. BUILD. BELIEVE. program.  The overall concept has taken shape, now it's putting together the details. SnoMon patches have been approved and should be arriving in a couple weeks.  These are the start to new products coming in November, including noggin' wear and
