Almost ….

I was reminded today of a previous encounter with a former co-worker. We were finishing up an internal meeting and joking around. Someone mentioned a story I had posted earlier and this woman, with whom I shared a mutual distaste, said innocently enough, “Wow, you’re almost worth friending on Facebook.”

My first reaction was honest laughter. It was probably the truest moment the two of us ever had. But then she ruined it by making me explain why that was funny.

Had I been the one who uttered that I would have ended up in HR. It never ever ceases to surprise me how utterly clueless others are to their own expressions.

I'm a marketer. I've been a professional marketer for over 25 years, but in reality, I have always been one. Marketing to me is about communicating effectively, regardless of platform, regardless of channel. Marketing is understanding both your objectives and your audience, and finding the right method and message for your customers to reach them where they are. Now I dedicate my efforts to helping very small and small companies pursue their passions and grow their businesses through marketing; providing agency trained expertise without the overhead.
