Back from Cancun

Back from a great vacation in Cancun.  Amazing resort right on the beach – check out some of the pictures below.  It’s called the Iberostar Grand Playa Paraiso.  Very highly recommended.

Didn’t do much business at all on the trip (with the exception of one morning), which was surprising even to me.  Usually I can’t go away without at least checking email consistently, but I didn’t power up my laptop until the 4th day.  I did frustrate one client with my slow responses, but all was resolved quickly.

In the process of clearing my mind on vacation, I did have one idle thought that I still can’t understand.  Why does a Sony PlayStation 3 (which includes a full blu-ray DVD player) cost $400 while blu-ray DVD players by themselves cost upwards of $500 (and higher before a recent price drop)?  Is it all about having that sleek, thin DVD player to display in your entertainment stand?  To my knowledge, there’s nothing magical a blu-ray DVD player by itself does that a PlayStation 3 can’t do.

In any case, here are some pictures of the resort in Cancun, but these don’t nearly show how beautiful it is in person (click on any picture to see a bigger version).


Coming Soon!

Well, I’m caving in…  I’ve been told by many that I should have a blog to discuss my past experiences as a young entrepreneur and current happenings in the industries in which I do business.  Hopefully I can help someone out there who’s starting a company or looking for new perspectives on more traditional thought in interactive media and grassroots marketing, specifically in the areas of finance and sports (where my experience lies).

I’m hoping to post here fairly regularly and will try to carve out the time to actually make my musings entertaining and informative.  If you’re looking to convince yourself of why you should (or shouldn’t) listen to me, check out the “More About Brett” tab above.

I’m heading to Cancun for the next week which should clear my mind and allow me to come up with some nifty ideas for what to do with this blog.  In the meantime, if you have any suggestions, you can hit me up at brett (at) phinaz dot com (hopefully you can figure out what that translates into without all the spammers also finding out).

Enjoy the weekend!
