April 1st 2015 marked our one year anniversary since we shut down Noodlehead Marketing. Three months later and we are now 15 months post-mortem.
2010 was a monumental year of testing for me. By this time in my life, I made a commitment to God about my values, priorities, and mission. This resulted in many trials and tribulations test my commitment. At the time, I wrote down what my focus. It included my personal mission, priorities and motivation.
13 months has passed since I became a full time contractor. With a steady volume of client projects over the last 13 months, our family has embraced my life as a full time freelancer.
A large portion of the work has included coaching business leaders through a visioneering process to help them get focus and organized. The remaining amount of work has included a variety of strategic and tactical marketing support. At the end of the day, I am helping business leaders resolve their internal communication problems and external marketing challenges.

Did You Know We Almost Got Sued?In the fall of 2010, I came face to face with a Sheriff for my first time. I was sitting down at my office desk when I looked over to see an officer in uniform enter.

For the website design work I do, my preference is to use the content management system (CMS) Joomla. Joomla is a great open source resource and I love to help promote its use when I get the chance.
Over the past several months, several friends have asked questions about Joomla and as a result I have put together a great hub on How to Build Awesome Joomla Websites. If you too are interested, you can visit the hub by clicking here.
