How Google Is Contributing To The “Walmartization” Of The World

I walk in. There’s usually a quaint little bell that rings when I open the door. I take in the shabby rows of mismatched chairs. I smell the exotic spices wafting in from the clearly visible kitchen.

The Power Of The Process

I went camping over the weekend in the beautiful Uintah Mountains. It was so nice and relaxing! I forget sometimes how valuable it is to unplug. The fun thing is, I got to unplug, but still got to have some great conversation about internet marketing (one of my very favorite topics right now.) 🙂 We […]
