His wisdom, leadership and teachings live on...

He lives on in his words, in his deeds, and in his calls to action for each of us. He did not give up. He accepted the call and knew his probable fate as often happens to those who stand for justice and equality in an unjust world.  I know people who accomplished great things in their lives, but when asked about the greatest and most memorable thing, they remember marching with Dr. King above all else.


Without the Marketer, Most B2B Companies Would be Regional Door Knockers

The message is that Marketers are the creators of wealth in B2B Companies

"Nothing happens until the sale is made," is most often quoted as a lead-in to praising salespeople. And the speaker is almost right, but we know that deep in our B2B marketing hearts, it all starts sooner than that.

Stu-tell-young-peopleWhy it's Important

"In B2B, nothing happens until the marketer creates demand. Without the marketer most B2B companies would be regional door knockers; they would not be able to go beyond the reach of their salespeople. Marketing in B2B companies creates Wealth. I mean real wealth. Hardcore, measurable, bottom line profitable dollars that drives the growth of our 11,000,000 plus businesses in the US."
