Sorry - Had some computer issues here. Seems like we've gotten them fixed and we'll be back to blogging. Sorry for the time delay.

Making an idea your own

Ever watch Law & Order and know exactly what real life case they were trying to emulate? Did it make it worse for you that it had been based on a real life story? Usually not - at least for the public in general. They often take unsolved cases and put their own twists on them to make it so you have no idea what is going to happen next. In Spark of an Idea - That is the kind of thing we were talking about when we said make an idea your own. Now we don’t suggest you be so blatantly obvious about it as they are on TV, but you take an idea, even one people recognize, and you twist it into something you think is even more interesting. I always felt that I wasn’t explaining the principle right and it sounded like we thought everyone should plagiarize other works. Hopefully this illustration makes it a little clearer.

Death and Taxes

Just a quick note to say thank you to all of our customers! We're wrapping up the finances for Board Enterprises in order to pay the taxes and 2008 was the best year (percentage wise) that we have ever had. Some years ago we had bigger gross sales, but by the ratios, this was our top year! We're hoping that 2009 will be better still!
We'll keep listening to what you tell us and trying to give you what you want. Hopefully, that will keep you coming back!
