  1. I’m impressed! I had a desire to enter into the world of business and marketing before I started pro-creating at an early age. Took a job at Ford Motor Co instead and recently quit after 18yrs to pursue another dream of working for myself. I also have a strong compassion for the world & all that inhabits it. Not sure why you’re following me but I know I will be well informed by following you. Thanks, and keep up the great awareness.

  2. It’s nice to see someone this entrenched in the business, marketing, and social media world who has managed to keep their integrity and values, and not sell their soul to the highest bidder (like the current GOP presidential candidate…) Keep up the good work, really enjoying your blog posts.
