If you are a pet owner or a multiple pet owner like my family, eventually you will run into the notorious flea problem.

The notorious flea issue is simply the fact that ridding your household of fleas is more like finding a cure to cancer than a simple drop on the back of the cat or dog neck. It’s a hail mary pass for all the solutions on the market which seem to work in videos on Youtube, but nothing works.

We tried everything. Absolutely nothing worked for us. …

About 4 weeks ago, we got an email about an art show at a local museum in Boynton Beach, Florida. The reason we took notice is they were inviting members of kids on the spectrum to show a few art pieces in that show.

It’s been a few weeks since I have written an article on Medium. Turns out that 2021 is becoming what we could both describe as both a cluster-F as well as a boom-time opportunity.

Things are just happening for our startup SEO Turbo Booster for good or bad. We have gained customers. We have lost customers. We are finding new customers. We are finding potential investors. We are finding new directions. We discovered what really needed to be doing 2 years ago. …

If I were you, I would not settle in for getting back to business as usual in 2021.

And with the pandemic, you’d think in 2021 we are slowly getting back to normal, right?

I have this “chaos theory” I live by. And sometimes, every once in a while, I get this feeling, especially when my Sixth Sense tells me something is not right.

The last time I had this feeling was August 2001.

And you know what happened, a few weeks later on 9/11 everything changed.

More specifically I had a girlfriend at the time who had bought some…

This is just my opinion! So, as I look at business opportunities, solutions, or advise any startup I try to get them to look carefully at these points. I believe these points, the higher on the list, makes the idea more likely to be profitable and succeed. Here is the order of startup parameters in this order I look for. And I would maybe rate your ideas by this list. If your idea does not have 1 of the first 3, then reconsider the concept. If your idea combines the first 3, you have a potential winner. If you have…

The year 2020 for me is not about what happened, it’s about what did not happen. And there is a lot of what did not happen. Warning: I get a little political at the end of this article.

And let’s not focus on the physical events that happened, because that is just too easy. There is much, much more going on in 2020 than the news that impacted us all. We all know things like there was a pandemic, Trump lost an election, protests caused New Yorker friends of mine to leave the city indefinitely, the stock market crashed and…

As we reach into a new era for my tech startup, SEO Turbo Booster, I had an interesting experience talking with a potential customer, partner, advisor. He gave me the talk, that I was doing something not viable, not even possible, and not something he would consider. But I told him he was not my customer, so don’t sweat it. I told him whatever we do, it’s because customers want it and pay for it, and that’s that. I had no reason to argue with him. I told him in some ways I agree, but overall I don’t. …

I am probably like you, just an average guy living in an average home with an average family of 4. A lot of people probably will laugh if they heard I was handy around a home. Like most, I do what I can do myself. Automating my home is one of my goals.

First, we need to identify what is Home Automation and what can actually be accomplished. You have electric power consumption that can be managed by time, by other factors. You have your air and heat consumption and timing. You have voice-based services like Echo, Siri, and Alexa…

My Problem — Multiplicity

If you only knew me from a short conversation, follow me on Medium or Linkedin, read my writings, see the software I’ve written, or heard me speak in front of an audience, you’d think that I am an extremely focused person. I am not a focused person.

I wish I was a focused personality, but that is not who I am. I tend to want to start new things all the time and I seem to enjoy multiple businesses, switching between jobs, etc., etc.

But do I really like multitasking? No, not really. I have an issue. …

A California judge has ordered Uber and Lyft to reclassify their workers from independent contractors to employees with benefits, a ruling that could be consequential for gig economy workers if it survives the appeals process.

If you have not read this August 10, 2020 story about Uber and Lyft, click here to read it on NPR, and they reference this story a year ago about the reclassification of 1099 workers as employers. That means the law says in California these workers need to get health benefits, worker’s comp, etc.

So, let’s just clarify what is happening here. Basically, if you…
