You could say that’s the day I lost my innocence, because it was then I stopped being one of the sheep and instead became a hunter.  If you want to make the same change yourself, Direct Marketing is the only kind of marketing you should be doing.  It will force you to think aggressively about who you’re selling to, track how much you’re spending, how much it’s pulling in, and the effectiveness it’s having.  Get this right, and it’s the closest to printing money you can ever get. BRAND ADVERTISING When you’re growing up, everything you see around you is usually dominated by brand […]

I’m going to share a video of Scott with you in a second, and from it you’re going to see that he’s almost a caricature of a person; in some ways it’s hard to believe that people like him are out there.  But before you chalk him up as a over-tanned Jersey Shore type, there are a few things you should know about him … He’s extremely ambitious and has the work ethic to match.  The quick and dirty on him is that he’s worth something like 50 million (in euros, pounds, or whatever you guys […]
