Recent Marketing Resources

I caught up with a friend for lunch at The Merchant yesterday, which is a hot lunch spot right now. It’s always fun to watch the responses people give when the host informs them that unless they have a reservation they are out of luck. I’m able to get advice from both a seasoned...

Why People Hate You for Talkin...

Audio Confessions!

B2B Marketing Confessions is now available as an audiobook! I know it’s absurd that a guy with a podcast needs a year to get the audio version of his book done, but that’s how the chips fell. The blurb: What’s the Truth About Marketing? Contrary to the popular belief that...
