Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Customer Strategy

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Customer Strategy

On November 23rd 2010 and December 28th 2012 my life changed forever when my sons were born. It was also the beginning of me stepping away from the corporate world and into the entrepreneurial/business owner world.

Needless to say this completely changed the complexity of my marriage and family structure as I knew it. As I am driving the family home from Texas, I’m making phone calls in order […]
