“A good idea is 10% inspiration and 90% implementation.”


“Defy the crowd. The crowd isn’t always wise. It can also lead you down a path of silliness, sub-optimal choices, and downright destruction. Enchantment is as necessary for people to diverge from a crowd as it is to get people to join one.”

“Content marketing is all the marketing that’s left.” – Seth Godin


Content that builds trust is human, personal, relevant, it isn’t greedy, and it doesn’t trick people. If the recipient knew what the sender knows, would she still be happy? If the answer to that question is yes, then it’s likely it’s going to build trust

I think that B2B marketers need to understand lead generation and the roles that email marketing and marketing automation can, and should, play in their success, and lobby for the budget that will help them put those things in place. Marketing teams will benefit, sales teams will benefit, and customers and prospects will benefit. But you can’t do email marketing and marketing automation without content, so understanding the right kind of content to create for each stage of the customer journey, having the ability to do (or outsource) that, and also making a commitment to creating video content are the three key things that I think it’s imperative that B2B marketers embrace in the coming year.

“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.”


“Learn to be difficult when it counts. In school as in life, having a reputation for being assertive will help you receive preferential treatment without having to beg or fight for it every time.”
