AT&T Small Business Fiber SCAM!

I strongly recommend against any business getting AT&T shared fiber. I was told by the salesperson when I signed up for a 200 MB up & down connection that it would be amply enough to support my office of 25 people. However, the ONLY router you can use is a consumer grade router that basically will only support 2500 NAT… which works out to about 3-5 people. I have had a nightmare of having my internet crash for 30+ minutes a day because of AT&T’s small business fiber scam. I recommend going with any other provider.


I am trying to delegate more tasks to my team. I still have been feeling pretty swamped though.

Email Barrage

I sent 99 emails today. I received 408.

I was not able to do anything but handle emails today and do a two hour meeting and a one hour meeting.

I prefer to get tasks done, but I guess this is what you have to do sometimes as CEO?

Ben Franklin’s Advice

No Unions Allowed for Government Employees

We have a serious problem: Our government expenses are ballooning out of control.

One of the primary causes of this is unions of government employees aggressively negotiating for higher pay and benefit for members. Here in LA for example, one friends father retired from the police force with a $135,000 per year pension every year for the rest of his life at age 55.

How do government employees get such great deals that no one in the private sector gets? Government unions negotiate with politicians who they put into office in the first place. The politicians are spending money that is not their own – it’s the taxpayers.

It’s an unfair and unequal situation – the taxpayers are not represented, but have their money stolen at gunpoint. The government unions are strongly represented by extraordinarily talented attorneys who aggressively fight to take as much as they can.

We need to disband all government employee unions as they are an abuse on the system.

Good to have routine

I really like having a routine and being home and focused on work and exercise. Much healthier than trying to work and exercise and travel.


We had John-David from Yotpo visit our office today and do a great presentation on user generated content and how it works. I really was impressed by Yotpo’s platform (although it is pretty darn pricey) and what it can bring to businesses that have a solid audience in place. Looking forward to seeing which customers will be the best fit for it!
