Social Media Foodie: Would the Real Farmers Please Stand Up?

Farmers markets, a welcoming oasis especially for city dwellers, gives us that sense of connectedness to other people and more importantly to our food. When I worked in Washington, D.C. I lived near Eastern Market, which every weekend would showcase an amazingly diverse and abundant array of fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, seafood, and more.



I don't ever remember questioning the authenticity of who produced the food - or even if they produced… Continue

How Does Your Company Sleep at Night?

The #1 complaint I hear from job seekers is that they never hear back from the company who they either a) sent a resume/application to OR b) had an interview with.



There is no doubt that it’s a Talent Buyer’s Market and that Recruiters are getting inundated with resumes. But, this is no excuse to blow off candidates. In addition to coming back to haunt you when the market shifts, ignoring… Continue

Catching Up On Current Topics

In my last column, I promised a further discussion on the differences in behavior between those lenders who seek to avoid moving from a creditor to an ownership position even in distressed situations, and those who embrace the ownership opportunity. I’ll come back to that next time, but today I want to note some recent news and other items which have crossed my desk. (Those of you who have seen my desk would correct me by saying they’re just at the top of the stack nearest to hand, as… Continue

Rock Paper Scissors

Coupons aren't new to the industry, but they are effective. This is a fact that we've encountered numerous occasions on numerous projects. Blabberbug is the brainchild that resulted from years of these coupon experiences.



Today, we signed up Roburritos in York, Pennsylvania. Roburritos has a rock and roll slant on the mexican format. I was in for a treat when the owner laid his coupon offers on me.



For the Blabberbug recipients: A free chips and salsa. Pretty good, FREE is… Continue

Pikes Fish Market, Seattle Washington

Ah, Seattle Washington, what a wonderful city. Have you ever been to Seattle? If your answer is no, you may want to rethink your vacation plans, really! Besides the fact that Seattle sits in the shadow of Mount Saint Helen, this is a beautiful city. I have had the pleasure of visiting Seattle twice, I was there, back in 1998 for the National Association of Black Journalists Unity Convention, and again, last summer while on a road trip to British Columbia. While visiting Seattle most recently,… Continue

Who is the target market for your restaurant?

This may be the most important question you can answer when designing a restaurant concept. It is definately the most important question to answer when creating a marketing plan.



One of the biggest mistakes restaurants make is trying to appeal to everyone. If you think that your target market includes everyone, you are setting yourself up to fail. If you want to be successful in any business, especially… Continue

Indianapolis City Market

I noticed a fellow FOHBOHer posted some photos of the Minneapolis City Market, and it reminded that I have some photos from the market here in Indy.

It's just undergone a massive renovation, and has brand new vendors, a farmer's market every Wednesday, and even a test kitchen for live demos...not to mention some of the best food and entertainment in Indy, so it was definitely a fun experience. Enjoy!…

The Talent Buyers' Market and a Guy named Kurtis...

With a 6.5% unemployment rate and approximately 240,000 people laid off last month (over 1.2 million jobs lost year-to-date), it is a Talent Buyers’ market. The vast pool of unemployed Talent (and the eager army of the currently employed) are more ready than ever to listen to your hiring sales pitch.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
