    "You did what?" an employee at the MGM asked, as Head of Sales John Acton and I stood before her, tired, and wearing the sort of cologne that can only be earned from nearly 30 hours of driving through the desert.  "That was pretty stupid," she continued.  Neither of us had the energy to...

    Like so many brilliant ideas before it, it all started over a beer.  "I haven't done anything stupid in a really long time", I told John Acton, our Head of Sales.  Sure, we are both fortunate enough to travel for work quite often, but the resulting inconsistency in personal schedules doesn't...
