    Getting the right tip to grown an adolescent business should be the preoccupation of many marketers today. This podcast seems to have addressed the facts we all all should know! I am taking my time listening to this Fizzle show and would gladly share by opinions hereafter!

    I prefer to think my business is in the “terrible two’s.” I have achieved enough success that I want to call the shots. But the reality is–I have a lot to learn from clients who are biotech companies and startups. What they suffer to build their business makes my consulting shop look like preschool.

    Humor aside, I do need to pivot, as I’m overworked and unamused by my 9 to 9, 7-day-a-week work schedule. The Fizzle podcast came at the perfect time. It’s Tuesday and I have lots of admin work to do.
