Why Write This Book?

The Background Story


When I started my first company I was bewildered by marketing. It made no sense to me. Everything I read, explained some marketing concept or technology, but I could not see how all the elements fit together to drive earnings growth.

I wrote this marketing book to help business owners wrap their heads around the business development process. To help them move beyond random acts of marketing to generate a return on their investment.
