Recommendations for Brain Food for Business Owners

  • Ken began writing a weekly column for our Business Tuesday section in 2010. His columns are aimed at ideas for business owners and managers to implement to improve productivity, efficiency and the bottom line. The columns are always well written and written in a style that everyone can relate to and business people can gain some knowledge they didn’t have before. I can recommend Ken as a columnist to papers of all sizes. And his prices are reasonable, too.

  • I love Ken Keller’s Brain Food for Business Owners articles. Among their many attributes is they’re exactly as advertised. They’re simultaneously thought provoking and familiar; inspirational yet full of practical how-to’s. Moreover they’re grounded in the real world realities of our day to day professional and personal lives so we can always relate to his theme. Offering in equal parts, a pat on the back or a kick in the pants, whether or not you agree with Ken, I believe you’ll appreciate the intelligence, candor, support and tough love he offers to those leading a business.
