When I asked our summer marketing intern to start a blog, I thought I would be ghost writing some of her posts. Well, it turns out she is such a talented writer, it probably makes sense for her to ghost write mine instead. Check out her introductory posts. They make for a good read

Every day brings a new report on some obscure impact of climate change by 2050. Today's headline is almost comical, "Chipotle Warns It Might Stop Serving Guacamole If Climate Change Gets Worse". Along the same lines, a typica...
