I get sucked into shows like America’s Got Talent. So many people with so many talents, it just amazes me. One of my favorite parts of these shows though is getting to know the people. When they’re on stage, they’re performing. We know them by their talent, their looks and their emotions. We associate them with what they do on that stage. And when they hit that damn golden buzzer and all the confetti falls down and the people start crying, I’m a giant baby wrapped up on my couch crying along with them.
WHEN YOU MOVE, WE MOVE: THE FUTURE OF WEB DESIGN
Back in 2007, when we started designing for clients, websites were not a service we provided. As more and more people asked about them we came around and adapted Worx to fit consumer needs.

I spent nights worrying and stressing about the future, and even when I landed the job, I spent my nights worrying about the first day of work.
The idea of delegation sounds miraculous. Something needs done and there are people to do it. All you have to do is give them direction and let them do it. Problem solved! The sticking point is usually in that last part… letting go.
