I was laughing to myself the entire time I was at the Inbound Conference; we all wanted to learn about the latest trends. Marketing is all about people. Oh yes, that was an earth shattering revelation. I’ve been in the business world over 25 years and it is fascinating to me to see how some […]

A slightly different twist than “How I spent my summer vacation.” Well you all know how I spent my summer – kayaking and eating Blizzards from the Dairy Queen. Now it’s time to buckle down and get serious. Fall is my favorite time of year; I have so much energy because of the clear, crisp […]
