"Ideacafe is one of the few sites that I come back to regularly. Why? It's interesting. And it's constantly refreshed...
I came out of the corporate grind where a portion of every day is filled with putting out fires, coaching employees, doing damage control, political positioning, internal PR, performance reviews, etc. After I started my business from home, all that was gone, and I had time to provide for my family in ways the corporate world could never match.
Now the fires I fight are the ones I want to fight, and I can use my time any way I please."

"After my previous experience brokering for several oil & gas companies in the last 12 years, I know how vulnerable and fragile a company can be even after a couple of years of operation. I've found that it's good therapy to be able to laugh at ourselves, so I'm impressed with the light 'air' of Idea Cafe, as well as its professional info."
