Marketing Eye

You can spend hours trawling the internet to find pearls of wisdom, or you can just look up those who have been there and done it. 
I was reading Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop Magazine the other day and a headline stuck out which resonated with me. "You need to be able to own your fears, and you need to be able to own your desires. You cannot outsource feelings."

I totally agree with this. When I first started Marketing Eye, I built it from a perspective that there was no global player in SMB marketing. While this makes perfect sense, it didn't reach the pit of what I really wanted to achieve as a business person, or a leader for that matter. I also had not thought it through.

"I was doing something from a very real, a very honest place, so I think that's why I was able to build an audience," said Gwyneth Paltrow to Fast Company in a recent interview posted on Facebook.

PR = Sales


It's Sunday, and like most Australians, I am enjoying the day, relaxing, reading the papers and eating with friends and family.

Reading The Sunday Age is always a treat, especially when I get through the paper, start to finish. It is full of interesting stories on people, places and world affairs.

For some light reading, I often pick up the Sunday Life Magazine, and flick through. Having Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover helps, as I am a BIG fan of her acting, singing and sense of style.
