Being Acquired

Posted on January 27, 2015

Almost every tech company dreams of being acquired by a bigger and better funded company. Besides proving that what you’re doing is worth it, and that your team/services are of value, it usually means a payday for time invested building the company. TechXpress, the company I worked for over 7 years, was acquired by SpendSmart Networks in September of 2014 for $1.6 million. TechXpress had two divisions: Web Services and IT Services. SpendSmart acquired the Webs Services division, while IT Services was purchased by Tim Synder, then chief technology officer of TechXpress.

Strengthen Your Strengths

Posted on September 17, 2014

We all have strengths and weaknesses. Perhaps you’re an awesome sales guy who’s great with people, but challenged with managing a schedule, or a super designer who struggles with communicating your ideas. Each of us have skills we’re great at, and skills we’re not so great at. Regardless of your strengths and weaknesses, we all have one thing in common: time. We have finite time to make an impact in this world. Would you rather invest your time improving skills that come naturally and fine-tuning them to greatness, or grind it out improving your weaknesses that get marginally better, but never great?
