A few months ago, I met a guy at an event. You’d recognize a guy like him, slick-hair in a suit, busy shaking hands and handing out business cards.
He introduced himself to me and handed me his business card “Well, how about grabbing some coffee together?”
As soon as I looked at his business card printed with “Insurance Agent”, an alarm went off.

I’ve been writing blogs and articles for almost 2 years now.
One of the things I noticed about writing is that it helps you think and can facilitate problem solving.
In the article " I Told My Business Ideas to Many People and Here's What Happened..." published on Democrat and Chronicle, "Jeff Hoffman, co-founder of Priceline.com" should be "Jeff Hoffman,, Serial Entrepreneur (Priceline, uBid, ColorJar)".
A couple week ago my cousin called me to ask for some career advice.
It was an emotional moment for me. I did the same thing a few years ago and I have benefited from career advice from strangers who are doing very well in their own field.
I’ve also received (I didn't ask for it) bad advice from “experts” who turned out to be tree trolls.
So I shared three important lessons I learned about “advice” with my cousin.
This is a story about how I learned to tidy up.
I always thought I was so good at organizing and cleaning. I arranged everything based on floor plan (making it “user friendly” as tech people like to call it).
About a month ago, I came across a book about tidying up. I cringed. Who the heck would write a book about putting your stuff away and more importantly, what kind of human being would read it?!
Out of curiosity, I got a copy and started reading.
