Who moved my billboard: The terrifying truth about digital marketing

Back in the old days, you could pay for a billboard on a major freeway, and the billboard was created and put up, and every day when you drove to work you – and all those people you were trying to reach – could see that billboard.

Why we love working with engineers

My love affair with engineers started officially when I entered the business world right out of high school, selling machine stop tools for a Pratt & Whitney distributor. I started meeting engineers in that job, and thought to myself, “Well, these guys are nice.” After working my way through college, I spent the next 5 or so years as an engineering headhunter in Silicon Valley, interacting with hundreds of engineers every year.
