Last month I got anchor priced, and I got anchor priced HARD.
I was in Greenville for Deeper Weekend 2015, and I was looking for a gift for my wife and my realtor (same person). I wanted to get her something cool, so I popped into the Mary Praytor Gallery, a cool little boutique art gallery on main street.
One interesting aspect of the pricing at the Mary Praytor Gallery was that absolutely no one was there. No customers, no employees, nobody. I even went into the back and hollered¹, “Any y’all here?” But none of them all were there, effectively making their prices for everything $0.00. Read more
As Thanksgiving approaches, I find myself thinking about family. We all have a family that we’re born into. When we begin our careers, we are hired into another. That’s right. The company you work for is a family too. It’s important to remember that if you plan on hiring your own employees.

It’s easy to get caught up in the adrenaline rush of running your own business. I’ve felt it coursing through my veins since my first post in January. It was even titled “Just Jump Already” – a call to action for those perched on the cliff in need of a push.
There are many benefits to owning your own business: control of your schedule, a sense of empowerment, and of course the excitement of building something from the ground up. In the podcast I co-host, I’ve even mentioned my newfound ability to enjoy daytime movie matinees. You really can’t beat having a theater to yourself; being able to drop everything and go do that is exciting. Read more
