Sometimes the best thing you can do is pick up the phone..... Yes, this is a telephone.. 
Getting information from clients or coworkers is a lot like a mother nagging her children to do their chores. It's annoying, but extremely effective.

Things happen, and meetings get missed... once. But when it happens on a regular basis it is time to say something.
Sometimes meetings are canceled because the other person just decided not to show up. Don't get mad. Get strict.

Story
Introduction
I spent twenty years in corporate America before coming to my senses.  Frustrated by the resistance to change, indecision, and lack of entrepreneurial spirit as I climbed the corporate ladder, I gave up the fancy VP office, huge staff, and big budget.


Today, you can find me at Roundpeg, a small marketing firm, based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Along with an extraordinarily talented team, which includes Bonnie the dog and Clyde the cat, I share what I know about marketing; helping small businesses, become big businesses.
