When it comes to net neutrality, there’s a great deal of intricacies, legal jargon, and biased information propagated from self-interested parties (ISPs, cable companies, their lobbyists, and politicians).

It happened again just last week. A client that swore up and down that he didn't want a dedicated remote because, "Why would I spend $700 for a remote when I can just use this old iPhone that I have lying around and only pay $100 for the license?"decided a month later that he needed me to come to his house to program and provide a new wand-style remote.

Having had the “luxury” of working out of a showroom for the past 16 years, I often wonder, if we were opening our business now, would investing in a showroom make the most business sense? Or would a more streamlined approach make us more fiscally successful?

High-profile online security vulnerabilities like the Heartbleed Bug and frequent reports of identity theft and device hacking have prompted consumers to be more protective of their personal data and more aware of the risks that come with connected devices.

We as a society are finally coming full circle, with big business practices giving way to localized and personalized business. We are in the “Walmart generation,” and while it has been cool to save a buck or two, we are getting sick of just being a number these days. Cheap is cool, but human is better.

If you’ve been in this business for any length of time, say before 2005, then you likely experienced the inverted-V of the blessings, bad times, (hopefully) back-to-blessings period of the economy’s effects on your business.

Here are six lessons our company learned during the “bad times."

As time moved forward and I shouldered more and more responsibility, my husband and I decided it was time to grab destiny by the hand and leap into the abyss of the unknown. Since it is still standing six months later, I’ve decided to make the announcement official.

I spoke with my friend Mark at Home Theater Advisors to get his thoughts and perspectives on what he wants to get out of the CEDIA EXPO 2014. I want to share his plan with the rest of you.

As I prepare invoices now, I start running it through a mental filter I like to call WWJD: What Would John (me) Do? Essentially I ask myself, “If I were to get this bill, how would I feel about it?” Would I think it was fair? Would I feel like I was a valued customer? Would I understand why I was being charged for something? Would I want to continue doing business with this company? It’s a pretty simple barometer that often helps me to re-word things, clarify things, and sometimes adjust the price for things.

HRA was on full display during the recent High Resolution Audio Listening Experience in New York. But it still came as a shock for me to hear an engineer say that he thinks analog “sucks.”
