“I Like Solving Problems…”
I’ve had multiple conversations with people about what they want to do and this line keeps coming up. People, generally, like solving problems. Our preferences for types of problems differ but the spirit remains. Why aren’t we tapping into more of that in our conversations with our teams? 95% of meetings I’ve attended looked like…
Do you really care? Hoodie does.
Rapper, Hoodie Allen, has a rabid fan base and one he’s well earned. First, there’s the fact that the guy is just good at what he does: Creative lyrics, a fun, easy-going demeanor, and just a great overall entertainer. Needless to say, I’m a fan.

Personality trumps Plain, Every Time
Our new in-house, Marketing-Strike-Force-of-Awesomeness have been laying siege to the plain vanilla world of the tired & trite student housing adverts of old. Ben & Jerry themselves have trembled under the audacious show of flavor perpetrated by these skilled ninja-confectioners-of-imagination. Calling themselves the Triple Threat, these three complimentary legs of the tripod are the razor’s edge of our…
You can market anything… even cats.
You don’t need a marketing degree and you don’t need permission from the marketing gods. Whatever you’re doing, look for opportunities for art. I saw this on the Chive and couldn’t help but fall in love. “The Good King Snugglewumps” may be the best pet name I’ve ever heard – and I’m a dog person.
