The frequency of posting here is way down.
Part of it is time. We were gone for two weeks on vacation. You know what that can do to things.
I have been putting most of my extra time into getting More Space done. We have been in kind of a quiet period. We are putting the final touches on the essays and the layout. We are pushing to get it to the printer and I promise more news on the project soon. We are going to need your help to make it successful.
I have said this before, but with all the blogging I do for 800-CEO-READ, I am low on energy and material by the time I get here. That may actually get worse.
I have accepted a full-time position with 800-CEO-READ. I have been working with Jack as a consultant for the last 14 months. We have been talking for some time about me spending more time with them. I have been really happy with the things we have accomplished and I see all sorts of potential for the future. I think it is going to be a great place to hang my hat.
I think with a place to focus my energy I don’t have spare brain cells to spend thinking and commenting about the general affairs of the business day.
What does that mean? It means you are going to hear from me less here. I want to lower your expectations a little. If you like my angle on things, check out the 800-CEO-READ blog because you will continue to see alot of me there.
I know I still need this outlet, so don’t worry about me disappearing completely.
Congratulations on the gig at CEO-READ! I look forward to anything you post here – regardless of the frequency! Also, if Rob Mays essay is any indication of what More Space is going to be like, you’ve got a huge hit on your hands!!!
Thank you for the update and for sharing!!
Have a great day!
Congratulations on your enhanced gig Todd. Marrying work with passion/love is a great thing, and I know you’ll do very well and help make 800-CEO-READ even better. As long as there’s somewhere we can read your stuff, I think we’ll all be happy. Best wishes!
Many congratulations, Todd, on the permanent gig. Well deserved – Jack is the smart man I’ve always assumed him to be. 🙂 So happy for you and just know you’re gonna rock our worlds in the coming months over at 800-CEO-READ. Looking forward to it!
I want to throw a hot topic out for discussion. This is often a major disconnect between marketing and finance folks. The subject is what returns do we receive for our marketing investment. Science has now advanced to the point where many marketers can answer this question, but they don’t. I would like feedback as to why. Is this an ostrich in the sand phenomena? This remains a mystery to me. For example, I know big automakers who spend like drunken sailors on advertising, yet they don’t have a clue as to what they are getting for these vast expenditures.
