Love Him or Hate Him, John Chambers Will Leave a Legacy
For those of you not directly connected to the IT industry you might not even know who John Chambers is much less that he announced his plan to step down as Cisco Systems CEO after 20 years at the helm.

Am I Going Crazy?
I am sure you’ve heard the old saying “If you talk to yourself it is a sure sign you are going mad” or “It is OK to talk to yourself just don’t answer back”. I have a confession to make; I do both all the time. I can hear my wife, Jessi, now “that would explain a lot about you”. But hear me out as I do this for a very good reason and I think it would benefit more people to do it.

Going Old School For at Least One Thing in 2015
I don’t know about you but I try and spend a little time at the start of each year reviewing my goals from the prior year and thinking about major events that happened. I do this so that I can be sure I am not only setting goals but working to achieve them. As I did some reflection on 2014 I realized that I had read less books than I did in 2013. I also realized that I had not read many more in 2013 than in 2012. So I had spent some time trying to determine what had happened and since reading 12 books is a goal for 2015 (the same goal I didn’t reach in 2014) what I needed to change to allow me to achieve it this time. Here is what I found and what I am going to do. Maybe this process will help you with some of your goal review and planning.

Tis The Season To Question Every Email & Website
I love this time of the year, especially now that I have children. Finding just the right gifts for each person on my list, going out to the stores, looking for great deals on items, bringing them home in my trunk to hide, wrapping and putting them all under the tree is THE BEST!!! Who am I kidding, I am a guy and I hate shopping. But I do love to give and Christmas is a great time to give gifts of gratitude and love to people. I see gift cards as either a gift of request or last resort so I do A LOT if not ALL of my purchasing of gifts online. I know many others that do as well. So what steps should we be taking to protect ourselves both in this season of giving and all year long? Here are four common sense steps we can all take to have a happier and safer life when it comes to using our computers.

Here We Grow . . . And Why
"If you aren't growing you are dying as a business", is how the old saying goes and although "growth for the sake of growth can be bad" is another old saying; we are in the process of growing. As you may have already heard or read, we have opened an office in Covington, GA and I can tell you this wasn't done without long and thoughtful consideration. I though I would share some of the thinking and consideration with you here as many if not most of you are invested stakeholders in Infinity. The reasoning came down to 2 items around growth; 1) Growth to meet business plan goals and 2) Growth to meet client needs. But first the backstory . . .
