New headshot means updating every outlet. This will probably get replaced when someone eventually capture a photo of me in the wild.

Hey everyone, I am going on a cross country road trip this summer and was wondering what your favorite landscapes are. I'm already hitting up the grand canyon, painted desert, maybe big sur, and redwoods. What are your favorite spots?

What IsThe Best Google Analytics Training?

I am familiar with basics of Analytics, but I want to get really into it. Do any of you have a resource for training? I don't care if it starts at beginner and moves up to advanced as long as I become more well versed. 

Thanks!

Not my work so I figured general discussion would be good. What an interesting subject.

How does everyone feel about this Facebook call-to-action button buzz? 

I don't really spend much time on other pages, so I am interested to see how this button will change anything.

+Rob Gordon​ I would like to put them in promoted posts. I really don't think people hang out on pages.

Mixed emotions about this one. I do believe you should let the professionals do their work, but I think saying "its just a logo" is too simple. This will be on your print collateral and has instant recognition with your brand. Remember,  it is very hard to erase something from the internet, and having a bad logo that now ranks on Google or is attached to a popular video you made in the past can have instantly have a negative effect on a new viewer. 

I am not a graphic designer, but I can see the padding between Savvy, Sexy, and Social in your logo is off. Doesn't matter to me because I have seen your videos, but say I was in charge of marketing at a large agency seeking video work. I might pass you by because your logo made you seem unprofessional. Like "This girl isn't professional. She barely took the effort to make sure something as simple as her logo looks presentable." Sucks, but people do judge. Fortunately, I know better and will watch videos as I have been for quite some time now. 

Sorry for the rant, but I think this is too simple even though you do have great points.

+Michael Forgie I agree. It is far too simple. And that's to combat the people and brands are making the getting started process far too complex. I have to pick a side. And I side with action. If you can get the logo and name done and created and feel on your way to success, then get it done ASAP. Keep it simple. Thanks for the critique of my logo. You can tell I don't care. Because it's not something I'm going to let hold me back in the day to day operations of pursuing success.

Hey guys, I don't want to spam, but I would really appreciate your help. My Buddy Parker is an NJ photographer and started an amazing project with a few other amazing individuals. If you could help them out with a simple click of a button, he would greatly appreciate it.

It is great to have a shop that is backed by actual skaters who are dedicated to the culture and community. Nephews carries some awesome brands you won't see in franchise "skate shops," so at least you won't look like every other guy walking down the street.

The baristas at Small World Coffee were very nice and talked with me about my purchase. As a first time customer it was a great experience and looking forward to my next drink when I head back to Princeton.
