Everyone Contributes

When I joined MRY last year, one of the selling points of the CMO role was that Matt Britton said I’d be a mentor here to hundreds of potential thought leaders.

Around the time I joined, MRY was planning to start its blog, and there was the idea that everyone should ultimately contribute to it. I liked it in theory, but I know blogging’s not for everyone. Heck, I can still improve at it quite a bit, and I’ve been blogging for ten years already.
