What is the Allbound truth of the B2BCamp Keynote?
Read more

Man did I get some love on Saturday at the B2BCamp Unconference.  I had the privilege to give the keynote address “10 Sales and Marketing Mistakes that stopped me from building a $100 M Business”.  I have to say the Twitter love was much appreciated.  Now I know, just bring my daughter to all my speeches and everyone thinks I’m great. As promised, I...

Prediction 4: What is Attribution, can I get some?
Read more

Do you have an ego?  I do.  Who doesn’t, I want to meet that person.  No matter how centered you might be, it is human nature, if we do a good job, we want someone, anyone, to give us a “shout out”.  Confirmation that we are not crazy is an important part of life, and the idea of attribution is spreading like wildfire.  The...

Today was a great day.  Got an opportunity to keynote the B2BCamp Unconference in Atlanta, Georgia – what an amazing group of people.  I will be blogging next week about my specific keynote topic “10 Sales and Marketing mistakes that stopped me from building a $100 M business”.  One funny thing did happen today, apparently I invented a new word “Allbound”, as a joke...

Have you ever made a Prediction?

One of the things I love about being an entrepreneur is that often I deal in the future.  What might be, what can be, what will happen.  As much as the past is an indicator for the future – there are no guarantees.  Think about the people that have changed the world with various technologies that others might have thought silly when they were...

Today I spent time preparing my keynote “mic dropping” for B2BCamp next Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia.  B2BCamp is a user organized gathering focused on B2B Sales and Marketing topics. B2BCamp is one of many “unconferences” held  throughout the world.  Although similar to traditional industry conferences, at B2BCamp there are no “attendees” because everyone  participates in some manner.  I’m excited to share my presentation entitled,...

Do you sweat the small stuff?  You should.

You know the saying, “don’t sweat the small stuff”.  WRONG.  Another saying goes, “don’t be penny-wise and pound foolish”.  I just disagree and this is my blog, so I get to write whatever I want – ha.  From a business and personal standpoint this hasn’t worked for me – plain and simple.  Sweating the small stuff, the details, seems to make all the difference...

Have you ever used Google?

I recently started using this service called Google.  Have you used it?  Amazing – right.  16 years ago a company set out on a very simple mission : “organize the information on the web”.  I am clearly joking about the question of the blog, on a more series point, have you really ever stopped and thought about what Google is doing, their reach, talent,...

What is the Unemployable Rate?
Read more

I have been surprised at the response to my blog title: Unemployable Entrepreneur.  Seems to have struck a cord.  I started using this statement in speeches about four years ago.  So as usual, I blog, what does it mean to be unemployable, and what is an unemployable entrepreneur?  First things first, I learned a lot from yesterday’s blog research, there is clearly a correlation between education...

Do you KNOW the Competition?

Happy Friday from the home office.  Is it possible that holidays were created for productive work?  Seriously, the quiet focused time can only be matched by Internet access on what I call the tube of work (or airplane).  Today’s mission, complete a competitive analysis of digital (online) marketing platforms ranging from direct competitors to fringy things that could easy become a competitor.  Quick note:...

Are you ready to #Fail Quickly?

When is the last time you really crashed, burned, and bumped your nose?  We are not really mentally setup to celebrate failure – however – without it no real progress every happens.  Today’s blog post actually came from a conversation about the movie Shawshank Redemption.  The movie connects with me on several levels : my father worked in a prison for 25 years, the...

You guessed it, on another flight.  Headed to New York, New York for a WhatCounts Smart Marketing Roadshow Event.  Should be fun.  I get to spend time with a bunch of marketers who love technology, talk (I like hearing myself), and then have some drinks with a bunch of new friends.  Meets all the required attributes, being in New York always makes me dream...

Do you want to Hangout, wearing BlueJeans, and FaceTime?

This one comes to you from 30,000 feet.  Another day, another flight.  Today has me headed to Seattle, WA to visit the WhatCounts office.  I am always excited to go visit with the WhatCounts team.  They’re diverse, smart, and always funny. Good and bad.  I got upgraded (good), no Internet (bad). As I was preparing for my visit with the team I starting thinking,...
