Book Marketing Tip of the Day - September 16, 2019

Planning is important as a first step, but shouldn’t consume an inordinate amount of time, especially for a start-up. Focus on your customers, then start on your path in a considered direction. Then experiment, evaluate and iterate.

You Said It

“We did enjoy the APSS conference.  Now if our heads do not explode with knowledge we can put a few things into practice.”

They Said It

"Seek wisdom to do the right things, not for business success. If you do the right things for the right reasons, it might work out. And if not, you’ll find your success somewhere else. But always do the right thing.”

     Frank Crail, CEO Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
