Over the past 10 years, the first decade of the new millenium I professionally, in no certain order – learned about search engine optimization, wrote telemarketing scripts, branded a credit union, learned how to email with my cell phone, how to work on a website, how to use an email marketing program, continued to use direct mail – I am still a fan of postcard mailings, used Google Analytics, hired and fired and mentored and volunteered, changed the name of a credit union, laid out many business cards, directed the production of  digital business cards, created conferences in Florida-twice in my technology industry days, directed a story for StoryCorps on NPR, was published nationally and locally and on wikipedia, spoke nationally and locally, laid out a newsletter, created a silent auction fundraiser for Boy Scouts,  voted for the Best Margarita in the Pioneer Valley, learned how to use a PDA and Skype,  owned four different laptops, five different cell phones – looking at Android OS one now,  tweeted with Peter Shankman, wrote marketing plans, wrote social media plans, changed jobs, blogged and texted, used Lotus Notes and Outlook, attended seminars and webinars, conferences and teleconferences, marketed Girl Scout cookies, served on many boards – left many, created vinyl banners and created banner ads;  and so much more; bought four digital cameras, joined linkedin, facebook, plaxo, myspace, and classmates, taped things on VCR tapes, DVR’d, burned CDs and DVDs, did live TV and radio, changed industries,  created videos, love Open Table, became a stronger alumni of WSC, placed print ads, placed Google ads,  sold on ebay but never bought, wrote hand-written thank you’s and will continue to do that, studied Catholic School marketing, raised money to help abused children and cried a lot,  use ITunes for my IPod, used AAA TripTiks, drove to Kentucky with my GPS, took a train to Chicago, flew north, south and west-but not east.  In this new decade, I must fly east!
