OneMorePallet story board - how OneMorePallet is going to save time and money for small businesses that ship freight infrequently, and in small volumes. Here’s to all those small and industrious companies that have built our great nation!
OneMorePallet founder Bill Cunningham attended the Republican National Convention on August 29th, and the Democratic National Convention on September 5th as part of the Huffington Post’s Entrepreneurship Expositions. Arianna Huffington herself met with Bill and loved the idea, resulting in this feature article about the company.

Failure. We as individuals are conditioned to think that failure is to be avoided at all costs. I mean, no one wants to fail, right? It is a scary idea failure, but I welcome it. Actually, I do. And I want to fail in the next few years. Yes, you did read that right (go ahead and look again if you…

This morning I went with my parents to church. The speaker (pastor, whatever) started off with a few statistics on the state of Christianity in the United States - it is dwindling.
No surprises there.
But why is Christianity dwindling? he asked the congregation. Some might say Christianity is dwindling because its story is unconvincing; scientifically unsound, or fundamentally irrational. No, the speaker argued. Christianity is dwindling because its story is NOT being told. Because the depth of the movement - the testimony of its followers - has been a song unsung.
My first reaction? It wasn’t the story, but the content of the story that was the problem. But then I thought… when’s the last time I heard someone’s story? Forget about the last time I “listened.” When was the last time I even asked?
Even if religion doesn’t, the importance of testimony extends to all walks of life. The depth of a person is in their testimony.
My freshman year of college, I rowed with a guy named Nick LaCava. I always knew he was a great rower, but thanks to the dismal performance of our varsity crew throughout the spring of 2009, his prowess went largely unnoticed by the rest of the world.
This summer in the London Olympic Games, this all will change. LaCava will be competing for the United States of America at the highest level of the sport. There is no such thing as “professional” rowing, and the Olympics is tops. Rowers who seek to raise their game and compete internationally all have full-time jobs and “real-world” careers to support their passion. Challenged by VFA, I decided to reconnect with Nick and see what he was up to.
It occurred to me today at Newport Beach, while observing many of my peers, that the line between “introverts” and “extroverts” is not drawn in sand but in time.
No one is simply an extrovert through and through. The woman you see sitting alone in the corner seems an introvert. In an instance that follows, that same pariah will surprise you. She will be the center of attention in your party.
