Marketing

Favorite quote: “Many people have one goal in life. And they aim their lives for that one goal. Good luck with that. The real key is to plant many seeds. 1% of the seeds planted will turn into 50% of the flowers. That’s Garden Math. What are some seeds? Send a thank you letter. Send an intro letter. Send ideas to people. Exercise. Eat well. Surprise your spouse. Make a website. Come up with an idea. Write an article. Read a book. Think of 100 more seeds. Every day plant some seeds.” — James Altucher
