We hit the road running in Atlanta and haven't looked back since.

In just six short months, we have embarked on changing the mindsets of many small businesses in Atlanta, that have been pressured by the Global Financial Crisis and are reluctant to ease their way out and invest in marketing.

As we know, many companies that increased their investment in marketing during this period grew significantly. It's just like when everyone is walking one way and you are walking the other. You all of a sudden stand out and people take notice of you. If they like what they see, then you make connections.

The past few months, we have been working with one of the most impressive companies in the US - Accretive Solutions. They provide consulting, staffing and outsourcing solutions to companies and have 11 offices throughout the country.

What impresses me most about Accretive Solutions is their people. If you ask any of their clients, they all say that it's their people that set Accretive Solutions apart from competitors. They don't hire juniors, and instead invest in people with experience and passion for doing challenging, interesting work.

Get A Whiff Of This...

Sitting on Wooloomooloo Wharf yesterday afternoon, watching the sun go down with a television journalist from the ABC, our discussion turned to consumer behaviour and creating demand for products that become a must-have in our everyday lives.

A way to remember Adelaide

Never thought that having an odd sign on a door would make a destination so memorable. Everyone in the ladies restroom at Adelaide Airport when I was there were in fits of laughter about a sign that may imply that visitors drink toilet water. Now, really... has anyone ever had a glass of toilet water in lieu of clean water out of a tap?

I Love America

Having travelled many times to the United States over the years for both business and pleasure, I have to say, that I have fallen in love with it all over again.

My recent travels were meant to be educational, and they were, but they also ensured that I revisited my old stomping grounds, reunited with friends that I hadn't seen in years and had new and exciting experiences that I will never forget.

It does help that the first time I went to the United States the dollar was 57c to every AU$1 dollar. Not ideal. Today, it sits nicely at $1.08 which pleases me no end and has definately aided in bringing back the passion I have for travelling to their great country.

Out with the old, in with the new

build-it-and-they-will-come-smallIt takes a brave person, to throw something away and replace it with something new. Look at your cupboards at home. When was the last time you threw out your favourite jumper, even though it has holes in it?

Sometimes a website can be a bit like that. You get used to seeing it. It brings you in a number of inquiries. Search engine optimisation looks pretty good compared to most of your competitors. So, what makes you throw it all away?

Aaaahhh! The little blue box. Every girls dream. Tiffany’s has created a brand that has thousands of people paying a fortune for a stainless steel keyring with its logo on it, just to get the little blue box and any item that is remotely affordable with a Tiffany’s stamp on it.

It’s true. Twitter is addictive. I can attest to that because I can’t go a day without looking at it, sending numerous tweets and then racing to my google analytics account to see what the response is.

When Brands Don’t Deliver On Their Promise

zucchiniOn a trip to the supermarket after work yesterday to buy a few groceries for dinner, I discovered something I wish I had not.

The world is our oyster

Having a go is very Australian and since my short stay in Paris, I have realised just how much Australian’s really are ‘having a go’.

Melbourne’s racing into Grand Prix fever

This morning, I woke up to the sounds of vroom, vroom, vroom and instantly, I thought I could smell burning rubber.
