eCommerce done right

It is called Shopify.

Unlike WordPress or other “web solutions” Shopify began life as a shopping cart! No extras or plug-ins to make it work.

How cool is that?!


Besides a cool platform that doubles as a shopping cart, it also offers half a ton of add-ons to make for an exciting website! Exactly the ticket for your startup or that business which might be many years old but no longer performing up to expectations.

Then, consider the tons of insights in the form of videos and blog posts and you begin to see the picture more clearly. Like this post on Branding and the importance of a message that talks DIRECTLY for you and about your business. But wait, there is a lot more… in fact, too much to cover in any one or two sessions.

Let’s talk!

P.S. Suggestion: Hire theSKIman for a 30-days and together, create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Or your money back. 100%...

Today’s issue is brought to you by SKI’s Jonah3+3™

Define JONAH: In the world of Dr. Eli Goldratt’s TOC (Theory of Constraints, which today is considered a Law), we call an expert a “Jonah.” Why? The name comes from the best seller, The Goal — A Process of On-Going Improvement by Goldratt. The problem-solver character, the teacher of common sense throughout the book, is a college professor by the name of Jonah. Once you become trained in “The Logical Thinking Process” (TLTP, a series of logic tools to analyze conflicts) you may be certified as a Jonah. In my case, the class is three days of study and application, then a break of two days to let your brain decompress, then the final two and one-half days. Hence the trademark of Jonah3+3.

Too Intense

Let us start with one small yet profound tool in TOC…

One of the Six Elements of TLTP is the Root Cause Analysis. In TOC-speak we call...

“Timing is Everything” —Dr. Denis Waitley


let’s talk about gettingStuffDone and how i make stuff happen…
btw, think how much faster you can type if you do not use the [shift] key.

consider three components for running much faster and jumping way higher than the competition:

  • mindset — is it a “moral imperative” as they said in the movie, Real Genius?
  • methodology — mine is based on focus and what a mentor called “The 24 Golden BoxCars” we each get every morning… known by a lesser term: 24 hours in a day.
  • tools — like the timer-tab dot com webpage and Pomodoro Technique:



Pay It Forward

One of my goals for the New Year is to share the tools, methods, and processes that helped me accomplish a significant percentage of my goals. Well over 88% of everything that I have taken the time to put on the wall.

Think 10X Increase in Throughput!


Look… it is not about Tesla or Elon Musk, it is simply one thing:

Putting Money in your Pocket Today…
More Money in your Pockets Tomorrow


Get it? Great!

In November of 1981 I began my computer consulting career. It was also the first year of ten years total of instruction at a local high school for Adult Education in Computer Information. Those first couple of years was all about the BASIC programming language. Then some Spreadsheets (Lotus 1-2-3) and RDBMS (relational database management systems). I also taught a number of Continuing Ed courses for Kent State University at Trumball and Tuscarawas campus.

In 1992 while reading IndustryWeek magazine, I noticed a book review. Not just any book, but the 2nd Edition of The Goal — A Process of On-Going Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox.

It changed my life

And so it was… a new...

Why Critical Chain Project Management?

by Jeff ‘SKI’ Kinsey, Jonah’s Johah


This was a great podcast today, talking about the power of a “critical chain” aka CCPM (Critical Chain Project Management) for resource scheduling over the traditional “critical path” aka CPM. In Goldratt’s world, he thought in terms of Drum-Buffer-Rope to in order to overcome delays or conflicts when dealing with Constraints (the “C” in his Theory of Constraints). Give a listen:
