Journal Entry – Sunday, January 8 2017 7:43am

I’m not a great journal keeper. I have sometimes written thoughts in Evernote. But it’s very erratic. That said, I really believe in its usefulness. Your mind is a terrible place to sort out thoughts. My constant, ongoing thought is on business. It’s a game that I’m always looking to win. I question the longevity […]

From SageRock Blog: Online Marketing: A Declining Industry

Being in this industry since 1999 has let me see it in a unique way. Basically, I think it has jumped the shark.  Online Marketing: A Declining Industry This fact is easy to defend in the SEO industry. Everybody and their brother says they do SEO. This has over-saturated the market. And over-saturated it with […]

Dementia Overseer

“Congratulations! You are the proud new overseer of a healthy, old, mentally decaying parent.” Dementia is everything backwards. But it’s not just backwards. It’s sideways. Inside out. Reverse. Forward. Stop. Go. It blurs dreams, this world, other worlds, decades ago, today. Dementia is a fucked up cut form of LSD that you’d ask your drug […]

A Call For Podcast Guests for Sage and Friends

I’ve been committed to creating a podcast.  I am at a place in my life where I feel more like an artist than  a business person.  It’s actually a message I’m trying to instill in other business people.  Coke gets it. I want you to get it too.  When you are passionate and in love […]

Sage Lewis – Chosen to Chair Project RISE Auxiliary Committee

I’m not the kind of person other people typically entrust to important jobs. “Loose canon” is a common phrase I’ve heard to describe me. But for some reason, Debra Manteghi, the Program Manager of Project RISE, the only group in Akron solely dedicated to homeless children, has appointed me to the position of Chair for their Auxiliary […]

Homeless Kids Can’t Get Housing Help if they go to college

So let me break this down for you: Let’s say you are a homeless kid. Good news! There are programs to help you get a place to live.  Let’s say you are a homeless kid that wants to go to college. No more housing help for you! The IRS says you are no longer eligible […]

Ohio Auctioneers Sample Contract in Word and Google Doc Format

The Ohio Department of Agriculture Auction Program offers an example contract for auctioneers here: http://www.agri.ohio.gov/public_docs/auctioneer/Auct_Sample%20auction%20contract.pdf The problem with it is that it has a big “SAMPLE” watermark all over it. And it is also in PDF format. So you can’t edit it easily. We’ve reworked that contract and put it in Microsoft Word. That way […]

Why I Want You To Go Camping

We started camping as a family when Indy, our kid, was 2.  It rained.  The tent leaked.  The fire wouldn’t start.  And you know… We had a 2 year old.  This seems to be a very common story. Many people seem to have rough first camping experiences.  Our saving grace was we went with a […]

It’s official: I’M AN AUCTIONEER!!!

80 hours of classes in Kentucky. Finding a sponsor, which is incredibly difficult. Or maybe I was meant to be with Chuck Kreiner and we just had to find each other. He is amazing! Get a background check. Get a $25,000 bond. Notarize all paperwork. Send paperwork not earlier than 4 weeks before the next […]
