If All You Have Is A Hammer, Everything Looks Like A Nail

By Tony Cotrupe | March 26, 2021

My grandfather was a carpenter. Well, more than a carpenter. He could build a house from top to bottom and he was completely self-taught. He could do carpentry, plumbing, electrical, you name it. In addition to his “day jobs” (yes, plural), he was the one that the neighbors called when something needed fixing. He never asked…

  I hope everyone is having a good summer so far. Here in Upstate NY, we like to say we have two seasons, “winter and the 4th of July”. A “work-related” highlight for me was an event at the Saratoga Raceway (that's horses, not cars). It was put on by the great folks at Upstate…

Feedback From The Readers

By Tony Cotrupe | May 25, 2018

OK, it's the Friday before Memorial Day and let's face it, you're probably not planning on getting a whole lot done today anyway. So I thought I'd share with you some of YOUR feedback on these newsletters over the past several months. Nothing scientific here; just based on the emails, phone calls, and in-person comments I get…
