"Hire great people and get out of their way. Talent will succeed and does not need constant engagement. If you have to micromanage them, you failed in your hiring and promotion process."

"In an unprecedented shift, tons of large brands opted out of the $4 million ad-spots and instead, took to Twitter. Buffalo Wild Wings, Arby’s, JCPenney and more all brought their A-game on social. But among the brands  Tide, an unlikely competitor, stole the show via Vine."

Blogs about Sales, Marketing and Customer Service through the lens of Social Psychology.
A former college baseball player, coach, sportscaster and radio talk show host. Now Director of Marketing for Taylor Made, the world's #1 seller of Thoroughbred racehorses.

Patrick has a lifetime of experience in Sales, Marketing & Communications, including work for the NCAA, NFL (National Football League), Minor League Baseball and the Tennis Masters Cup.

Played baseball on scholarship for the University of Kentucky and spent the summer of 1999 playing baseball in China.  Spent five years in radio and television as a play-by-play announcer, talk show host and producer.

Among the early pioneers of Internet broadcasting, on March 6th, 2000, Patrick became one of the first play-by-play announcers in history to broadcast a baseball game live over the Internet (Major League Baseball did not begin broadcasting live on the Internet until August 26, 2002).

Patrick holds a Sociology degree from the University of Kentucky and a Master's Certification in Neuro-linguistic Psychology (NLP).

His advertisements have appeared in magazines world-wide and his innovative global marketing campaigns have helped Taylor Made sell millions of dollars worth of Thoroughbred racehorses, including the sale of Horse of the Year, Havre de Grace, for a world-record price of 10 million dollars.

Love this place! I've tried all the Indian restaurants in town. Masala in Beaumont Center is my favorite. Great food, friendly service, clean and consistent. Recommendations: chicken saag, vindaloo, tikki masala, pakora. I've tried lots of dishes on their menu and I've never been disappointed. Very authentic. And they'll make it extra spicy upon request if you like food with a good kick! So if you want Indian food in Lexington, this is the place to go!
