I probably don’t speak to them often enough; it’s not because I don’t like them, it’s simply because each time we meet and begin talking, the conversation turns negative nine times out of ten.

    May 22 2011

    I’m preparing to teach a group of authors, both newly published, and veterans, about the importance of effective online marketing. As I’ve mapped out some of the different topics I’ll be covering, the one that continues to come to mind is about the importance of defining WHO you’re marketing to.

For many, “Corporate America” is the end all cure all, the reason we get a college education.
