Treat your audience as a good shepherd treats his flock.

Content Strategy, power up your business through audience development.

You’re in business for yourself. Possibly in South Georgia, like me: (912) 381-6318, or anywhere else in the world. You have customers. Referrals mainly.

He has failed too many times for him to count; but he built his first functional piece of programming at age 11. He has two Graduate Degrees along with his Bachelors from the Georgia Institute […]
