my marketing mantra

I say it in the morning when I wake, I say it at night when I go to sleep. I say it as I meditate – it is a mantra after all.

It’s there to remind me who is important and to whom I write. It keeps me focused on goals, on purpose, and to not lose that sight.

connect.
engage.
communicate.
learn.
[ repeat! ]
