The Color Spectrum random rants- A tribute to Orlando Florida 6-2016

I just hiked a mountain- it’s the real stuff.


So slogging uphill. It’s a hike. Upper altitude - yes! Get high on achievement and mountains. But is the client interface, the banter between a warrantied wifi device and a the vendor. Yes your product does not work. I’m the messenger and my client who is uses your product needs to know it will work. Hey! This is Mosedale Integrated Solutions, we thoughtfully solved problems, fix shit and goddamn we try! Hmmm- it’s what we do.  Sloging uphill is getting groceries, cleaning the kitchen, it is real stuff.  We deal with it professionally and personally.  Saturday house call, computer network visits, Sunday site visit internet checks boom!  A philosophy: a template that holds true- the client.  Follow up, invoice check, and fairness.  #radandy is upfront authentic and we at MIS call a spade a spade. Fuck I’m blogging too. How 22nd century is that? Am I a retro progressive entrepreneur, hardly, just wake up do it again and again: life.  I think we all can relate.  Who hasn't bounced checks, miss communicated and forgot to follow through?  Who hasn't misunderstood expectations and ended on the short list.  Yet we are leaders in vulnerability and empowerment. So deep down I know all that crap will pay off. Attitude and action is everything heck look at Chuck Yeagar:

"He had remarkable 20/10 eyesight, tremendous physical coordination, and an uncanny ability to stay focused in stressful situations. Those traits coupled with a competitive streak and his understanding of machinery caught the attention of his instructors," his website stated. -

How long do you or can you wait?
It's all about investment, time money, training, travel, client proposals and engagement. I bet and hope I can retain the monetary loss.  Even some of the monetary loss. I bet and hope that I don’t get cancer, or in a car wreck while texting. I just get up and do. My colleagues my business associates do too. At Mosedale integrated Solutions we learn to keep them close.  So we wait, hopeful.



It Takes a village.
I recently cooked an omelet.  What I usually do is grease the pan mix eggs heat pan drop mixture into egg and milk filling. Pull back sides let liquid fill sides to build solid supple form.  It is ready to flip, but wait - broiler on, top brown filling contents, cast iron in oven. Boom.  That’s a real omelet.  Lucy Briggs taught me this.  Always put omelet in oven for cooking. I learned that never blame a woman's mood on their period, my sisters friend and their after school sessions of General Hospital infuses that into me.  It goes on - long and short when you become misguided in a small town more often than not a friend of a friend or neighbor assists in shedding some authoritative light and guidance. Boom, pay if forward look out for each other.  Even us bloggers commenting and showing love- it takes a village. Yep. Right - O.

Creative economy = brutal economy
It was a great time, gas was cheap cars were metal and inefficient. And yes, wonder bread was a staple in every household. Men and some women went to work faithfully and had trust in not losing the earnings they made. Times have changed now, we've gone through cycles of shovel ready projects and disrupted Wall Street investments. Trust in the stability of employment is harder to come by. We spin off artistic endeavors. We find something we love and try to make a job out of it, but the strength and capacity of that 1950s employment model is hard to replicate, but required in today's creative economy. It's brutal.



“The American Dream of the 1940s and 1950s was by no means simple. Hard work, family values, and hope still remained the backbone of the dream, but you can see how these two decades expanded upon the dream. Readers, before I let you go, I have one question for you: Do we still have the American Dream in action today? I’m asking you simply because I ask myself this same question all the time.”


Reflections - ick...
So I don't come home to a wife whose ironing, a dinner made, and a lawn that's perfectly manicured. I don't wake up to the comfort and care of a company, its insurance and 401K stability.   So we get creative. We make our own comforts, our own dinners. We respect the people we live with and collaborate with and their efforts to do the same. I'm not saying there's no creativity in the corporate structure or the 1950s lifestyle. What I am saying is that the now ever changing economy forces us to be adaptable and creative. This is a benchmark at Mosedale Integrated Solutions.


Now, we have efficient cars. We eat whole grain bread. Yes, it's brutal, but the pride, passion and desire to be successful and excel in the economy holds true from the 1950s until now. Being creative is being thoughtful in relation to our day to day engagement with clients and people we interact with in general. The business model of the 1950s was always about people and taking care. That part continues to hold true in 2016. We've figured out a way to make that a priority by finding the capacity/stability of the 1950s. All of this applies to entrepreneurs and startups in today's day and age.



To each its end.
Lets celebrate diversity, people, compassion and the authentic self.  Let raise a village from a child and do the hike.  We owe it to ourselves and the important people around us. Fuck, they got us here, right, it takes a village.  It takes being creative, with cutting losses.  George Foss once said, ‘there is always another street car’.  It's not named desire but it is a potential opportunity on the horizon, embrace the creative economy, reflect on the 1950’s and look out for each other.
