I have included this page to give an alphabetical listing of some of my affiliations and relationships. I also reference this page from time to time in various posts.

The Aji Network

I am not a representative of The Aji Network. I am and have been a student. I have learned a lot in my time with them that helps me to notice, observe, think and act with situations that I encounter or produce.

For such knowledge, I feel like I would be holding back important help if I did not tell you once in a while about them. In addition, their teaching of distinctions that are new and powerful for me obligates me to reference them and give them credit. Here and there I will refer to them throughout my posts and give you links to their resources, but I am not an employee or formal associate of The Aji Network.

I am thankful for the help they have given me and the work they have put into building such a powerful business discourse. To be responsible with what I have learned includes acknowledging the history that has gone into their work well in advance of my showing up to learn it.

The Aji Network is rigorous, and study with them requires a significant effort. It is not for everybody. To set up an organization that seeks to produce top 1% business professionals means it cannot be for everybody. If working with The Aji Network interests you, please leave me a comment, connect with me through various social streams or reach out to them directly at http://theajinetwork.com.


As I started recommending more books in my posts, a friend recommended I get an affiliate account with Amazon.com. I debated for a few weeks, but decided it did not hurt anybody, and I do recommend the books. Anything I recommend, I have read and I preach as informational and helpful to my teams. Though I will shorten links that you find in the blog, the expanded version of the Amazon link includes the text ‘kenfawcom-20’, which is their handle for my account.

If you prefer not to use my affiliate links, don’t worry about it. Please look up the books that I reference anyway, as my first intention is that you might read them and find them helpful.


I almost left this one out, but I LOVE audio books, which are an important part of my practices for continuous learning. Amazon acquired Audible a while back, so at first it seemed redundant to include them, but they have two different affiliate programs.

So far, I have only linked book references to Amazon, but I may link to Audible more often in the future as I work out a way to make that easy for me to do and for you to navigate on the blog pages.

Loose Neurons

If you see it referenced here and there around the web, Loose Neurons reflects my personal brand. (By now, you might agree.)

It also reflects my interpretations of how professional networks of people come together to invent value. In the same way that neurons form connections as we learn new things (like playing the piano), we also reinforce those connections as we practice… and our work in the world gets a little easier. So it is with business networks – “networks of help” – and that is what I am always working to build.

That is, ultimately, one objective of this blog.

The Xede Consulting Group

Xede is a custom software development company in southeast Michigan. I joined Xede in 2008 in a role of agile project lead, evangelist and chief scientist of a sort. I have invented new offers for Xede and continue to work on ways to grow through rocky and volatile times in the Detroit marketplace and surrounding region.

Xede has explicitly chosen to uphold the freedom and autonomy of our staff to write and build identities on the web, so it is important to declare that nothing I write in this blog is a reflection on Xede, for better or worse, unless stated otherwise.
