An inbox update featuring a mix of digital marketing, SaaS, leadership and maybe some random.

Consistency is key.  I just don’t always remember that. ;)  It’s been a few months since I’ve gotten my monthly email out, but I’m back in your inbox for April.  2018 is off an running.  My March Madness bracket was horrible, winter won’t end and the American public is finding out that the real big brother isn’t government, it’s Google and Facebook.

What I'm Up To
A Change In My Career

You Are Not Alone

Where Things Are Headed
Want To Hire Me? Just Text Me
Sometimes I marvel at how much communication has shifted to SMS text. As the work force gets younger, tech adoption is furious and attention spans get shorter it’s not a surprise.
