Visiting Chicago’s Suburbs

Visiting Chicago’s Suburbs

I had the good fortune of segueing a Chicago area conference into a vacation up the coast of Lake Michigan.

Infusionsoft has put together a knowledgeable team to help small businesses automate their marketing. If I had a do over I'd sit in on their advanced sessions, but it was my first workshop with them and I wanted to make Continue reading

I'm happiest on the road, whether it's a two hour car trip or a 10 hour plane ride, it doesn't matter. What is most important is viewing the Continue reading
