Waterfall v.s. Agile – Which One Will Work Best For Your Project

We all have experienced moments when technology has failed us. Most of us respond in one of two ways. We either decide to completely avoid the use of that piece of technology or we get resourceful and hack together some type of complicated system to make it “work” for us. Either way it’s not easy, not without frustration, and often not worth the time. During these technology fails we often blame it on a poorly built product, which it probably is. However, should our blame be limited to just the product? What about the process it was built in? After […]

It’s Your Fault Your Customers Expectations Are Ridiculous 

I finally got around to watching Gravity with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. I had heard great reviews regarding the movie and knew they won seven Oscars. All this buzz increased my excitement for the movie as well as my expectations. Finally, last weekend I took a trip to Red Box and rented Gravity. Much to my disappointment it did not meet my expectations. Sure, the cinematography was beautiful, but everything else was not impressive to me. I even had the expectation of watching a movie with essentially only one character. Nonetheless, I was still expecting much more than what I […]

How To Find Focus with a Personal Mission Statement

If you ask the average person “What is your mission statement?” they often will respond with either a blank stare or a comment regarding their company’s mission statement. While it’s important to know your company’s mission statement it doesn’t really answer the question, “What is YOUR mission statement.” The truth is, we often focus on a mission statement for our business, but rarely take the time to develop our own personal mission statement. But it’s worth our time. A Personal Mission Statement Brings Focus A good mission statement is your roadmap to success.Click To TweetPowered By CoSchedule A mission statement is […]

Creating Change Through the Power of Observation

By now many of you know me. But for those you who don’t, I’m Britni the new Operations Director at Todaymade. Prior to joining Todaymade I spent a considerable amount of time working in operations as a store manager at company you may have heard of: Starbucks. After a week of working at Todaymade it was easy to see that the world of Starbucks and the world of Todaymade are vastly different. At Starbucks upon my arrival at three am sharp I was immediately greeted by a few over-caffeinated baristas that have the same amount of energy as twenty-four year […]

Why Paying Attention And Being Mindful Matters

Situational awareness is a lost skill in an age where nearly everyone has earbuds or headphones on. We stare at mobile phones while we walk, work, and eat. Situational awareness–knowing what is happening around you right now–is not a natural state for a modern society unaccustomed to the dangers of the wild. We don’t have to worry if a bear is nearby or an enemy is stalking us. We just have to passively cross the road when the traffic lights tell us it is safe.

If You Want To Sell, Focus On Value Instead Of Sales

Just a few days ago, we made some big changes to our flagship product CoSchedule. We decreased our prices. In an economy of ever-increasing prices this may sound crazy, but really, it made perfect sense. It’s all about a focus on value.
