Traveling from Sydney to Melbourne each week in between taking the trek from Australia to the US on a regular basis, I get to spend a lot of time thinking. Mostly I think about business, which may be boring for most, but what the heck...it's who I am and I won't apologize.
I'm binge watching The Good Wife. I feel almost guilty to say this out loud, but I am and for years I have avoided it because the name of the show and the images they used to sell it didn’t pique my interest.
You've made it, but what's next. You are a marketing manager with 10 to 15 years experience and all of a sudden you are wondering where do you go from here.
Game on. Marketers have not only had to turn to technology to power their marketing performance and stay clear of traditional marketing methods to a large degree, they now are needing to be more nimble when it comes to the purse strings.

Smart businesses know that a big part of their marketing strategy should be digital. Consumers and businesses are constantly online, with almost 8 in 10 people using social media and over a third of us checking it more than five times a day. Your brain processes an increasing amount of information daily and our mental filters are in overdrive. As marketers, how do we get our posts to remain in the minds of our audience? Marketing strategy is key, but it’s easier said than done. Marketing consultants can offer great insight into strategies and tools to help your business achieve a tailored solution.

Just a few tweaks here and there, and all of a sudden you see things so much differently than before.
The tide turns from time to time - that's a fact. When a business is doing incredibly well, most seasoned entrepreneurs know that some months will follow that are not living up to their expectations.
