I’ve Got Beef with Tesla

Last week, I drove with a couple friends down to Philadelphia for Easter Break. While we were driving, we discussed how crazy it is to think that our parents grew up without cell phones or computers. My parents went to college with typewriters, not laptops. They conducted research by combing through the stacks at libraries. […]

my blogging swan song

In reality, it’s a class about people.* I originally selected this course because I thought it would help me become a better marketer.
