By Cari Kraft, Jacobs Management Group

Thank you again for my third position in “Late Night YouTube Searcher for Videos.” Running Jacobs Management Group and publishing HS&M just wasn’t enough. Seriously, though, I run a meeting every week in which I use videos to spice up the process. I hope that you continue to save these to use in your meetings and presentations. I try to achieve the right mix of inspiration, humor and pure wackiness.
