How I Fell In Love

It was an autumn day in New York City in the late 80’s. Crisp and clear, with that warm sun that somehow manages to have a whisper of winter in it. And I fell head over heels in love. With marketing. I know what you’re thinking, “Yuck! Marketing is sales-y and creepy and so forced!” Or, as a health coach client said to me recently, “I just want to work with my clients, I hate the marketing part.” But that’s because you don’t know marketing like I know marketing.
