Thank you for coming along on the ride.I hope that as I pick a little, and put my pencil to paper, I can put just a little melody into that symphony that our great state has been composing for generations.

Bankruptcy is Good Business

Imagine for a moment that you are the owner of a lucrative retail business and you are hiring a new CFO to manage the financial accounting of your company for the next decade or beyond.  You invite a new young gentleman into your office and sit him in front of your desk. You have heard hype about this new business climber from many of your gazillionaire colleagues. You hear he has great personality and he really knows how to dress right.  You pull this new prospect’s resume’  and give it a glance.

I like that.Continue Reading…

About Brent Ryan

I have always been drawn to baseball movies. There is something about the depth of tradition to the game of baseball that brings an almost supernatural element to the sport.
