Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!  This weekend allowed me to get caught up on a few work-related things.  I know it goes against the Labor Day principle, but such is the life of a small business owner.  We began our shortened work week adjusting to changes to our crew.  While one person may not be a lot for a big company (a blip on the screen), for a small company, it is a large change.  I think one of the strengths of being a small company is being a...

Hard to believe another week is coming to an end and Labor Day weekend is upon us already.  Didn’t summer just start a little while ago?  I think this way about our business too.  It felt like yesterday when much younger (and foolish) people decided it would be a good idea to start a company.  Fast forward over 16 years later, having a lot more gray hairs and still foolish/crazy for undertaking this endeavor, time has flown by in a blink of an eye....

For BioSurfaces, August always seems to be the month of change.  Besides the summer beginning to wind down (which really bums me out) and football season returning (which negates the winding down of summer), the company undergoes many changes during this time.  Our college and high school interns who came in with little to no experience exit the company, hopefully feeling more confident in what they can do in the lab and maybe learning what they like (and dislike...

I have been very blessed to have made many connections throughout my life.  While some people like to make connections that will only help them advance their careers, I believe that all people I meet are important.  No person is unimportant.  You never know how a person could help you or you could help them.  This connecting process has not come easy to me.   While many reading this blog may think that I’m a fairly outgoing person so I am overstating my issue, th...

The title of this week’s blog pays homage to one of my favorite shows Seinfeld, in which one character named George Costanza declares that this is going to be the “Summer of George.” While you could say that this has been the “Summer of NuSpun™,” this week has really kicked things into another gear and brings us closer to seeing how this graft is performing.  It is exciting and nerve-racking at the same time.  It’s not like being a chef and getting instant feedba...

Tina and I have been receiving a lot of feedback about the blog from many folks that we have run into during our typical weekly routine, from attending a weekend gathering, taking our lunchtime walk, walking into work, a direct text, or through our social media sites.  We cannot say enough how appreciated this feedback is since we are writing this blog to let people know what we are working on in real-time (trying to keep it as simple as possible when I can), the...

In medical device development (and science-related fields in general such as drug development and discovering how a disease like Alzheimer’s forms/progresses), small victories are a way of life.  Get enough of them on the same program and maybe this leads to something promising.  Sometimes, the small victories are just that and may not advance the cause at all.  I equate it to fighting a war in that if enough small battles are won, you try to advance so that at o...

My late father-in-law Shorty (his nickname from when he was young man and not me insulting him) used to love to ask me what our most important product was, which always ended up with him saying that “progress is our most important product.” While he liked using this saying, it was General Electric that was the first one to use this as their company slogan back in the 50’s and 60’s.  As I looked around the company this week (when I was not running into Boston for...

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.  Unfortunately, it tends to fly by too quick.  In a medical device-based company, this is especially true.  Everything we do seems to require us to monitor time in some form or fashion, from running experiments and performing specific benchtop tests to evaluating our devices in preclinical studies.  It always feels like “hurry up and wait.”  Sometimes, the wait is well worth it.

As I relayed to you...
