I’m Coming Home

After a terrible week, I took some much need time off the past few days in Scottsdale, AZ. I read a book a day (this one and this one were my favorites), laid by the pool, ate a ton of guacamole, and did my best to take it slow, collect my thoughts, and plan my next […]

Missing

I’m at work for the first time and somebody was missing from their usual spot. So I put this there, and it kind of helps.

Goodbye To My Best Friend

Yesterday afternoon while we were getting ready to watch the Red Sox-Cubs game, Chesney had a sudden stroke, and it did enough neurological damage to his brain that it was time to say goodbye with dignity.

Nothing New, Everything Sucks

Chesney Update: Nothing new, everything sucks. We made a 3 am Emergency Vet visit this morning after a bad episode from Chesney, and their only suggestion is the same as any other vets we visited today when panic set in: hospitalize him for observation.

Sick

After a Wednesday night pain free, Chesney was pretty much bedridden yesterday and wouldn’t move for anyone, not even my mother who is his second favorite person on Earth next to me.

A Tour Of My Podcast Studio

I’ve always been fascinated by radio, and as of late, podcasts. In college, I hosted a radio show on the local campus radio station, and a few years ago, I hosted a podcast called Northwest Wedding Weekly. I was perhaps a little ahead of the podcast craze – especially for the wedding industry – but now that podcasts have […]

Out With The Old, In With The Brand New

For nine years and 170k miles, my 2002 Toyota Sequoia took me and Chesney all over this state, and to events in two others. From Ocean Shores to Southwick, Idaho to Eugene, Oregon to Friday Harbor to The Gorge, my Sequoia took me everywhere. And just last week it crossed over the 240k mark. This […]

Out With The Old, In With The New

This morning, the rebranding phrase for my company and its associated brands was completed. And I couldn’t think of a better way to “put a stamp on it” than the following three image sequence: Learn More About My Companies & Brands: Tony Schwartz Productions The Puget Sound Photo Booth Co.

Introducing PLAY Event Rentals

I’ve been working on a secret project for about five months now, and yesterday I finally revealed it to the world: the rebrand of Puget Sound Pro Audio Rental to PLAY Event Rentals, or PLAY for short. It’s been a long, grueling process and I’ll admit it: I totally underestimated how much work would go […]

Eight More Out The Door: The Rebrand Is Complete

I’ll admit it: I have sparingly posted here on my blog the past few months. But I have a good excuse: I’ve been rebranding all three of my companies. While I don’t recommend doing it at once – and I didn’t intend to, either! – those eight outgoing client binders pictured above are a symbolic trophy for me: the […]
