The Blogs of Alan Byrd

In less than four months, I'll be 40 and I think I'm going through a mid-life crisis! Sure, some people buy new cars, some try and get new wives. For me, my mid-life crisis came in the form of leaving the daily grind of a steady paycheck and opening a new business. 

For some people, that may be the craziest of all. We're in one of the worst economies of our lifetimes, companies are cutting back and no one's buying, right? I don't think that's the case. I think most people are weeding out the marketing that doesn't work and looking for someone to help guide them to marketing that does work.

I decided that I would write two different themed blogs for my Website. The first, "Get Connected," is sort of a primer on marketing. It takes the past 20 years of experience in marketing, sales and public relations and gives my thoughts and tips to this industry - what's right, what's wrong and what can be done better. The second, "A Pirate Looks at 40," is more therapeutic. I believe that business is about relationships and this blog tells you about whom I am and what I think about the world as I move closer and past the dreaded 40.

Enjoy and please leave your comments!
