Keep checking the end of your own nose…

Now, I know that you already know that your Thing is on the end of your nose. So yes, it’s as plain as day to everyone else, but often you look straight past it… and yet it’s the very thing that you do brilliantly and don’t always notice.

When Less is More

I am a bit of a stuck record on this–do LESS types of marketing but do them MORE. Trying to do every type of Marketing you can think of is going to exhaust you (and your Marketing budget, too!).
