I love this quote and like to think I live by its meaning:

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt, “Citizenship in a Republic,” speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Now this is impressive. 4 hours ago we interviewed a nice girl for an account manager position. She was very qualified but the question was asked- does she have hustle? 4 hours later she hand delivers thank you cards. Not for me but for everyone she met with! I think that answers that #howtointerview  for a job +Matthew Cole +Allyn Hane +Launch Digital Marketing

Launch Digital Marketing is in Entrepreneur.com!

The idea described in the article saved the client thousands of dollars and they generate a lot of social activity while flooding their dealership. I remember the service director being very nervous due to the amount of calls and how much they would have to give away. My theory was they didn't have the cost of direct mail so even if they did give away 150 oil changes it would be a "wash." Turns out they quadrupled their sales and had a response rate of 15% vs. the average 1% for direct mail! 

We sent a segmented email to only those with Facebook accounts. Out of 20,000 people on their list we only sent the email to 1000 people. Pretty good ROI.

Story
Tagline
As an entrepreneur, philanthropist, technologist and marketeer when Im not spending time gazing at a screen I am trying to figure out ways to make businesses more relevant in the the digital world we live in.
Introduction
Since 2011 I have led Launch Digital Marketing, a Chicago based Digital Agency. We have grown from myself and a content writer, Jamie, to more than 42 employees and 64 clients in verticals spanning from automotive dealers to magazine publications, all the way to non-for-profits and political candidates.

I devote my passion to helping achieve measurable results and wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I knew someone was out hustling me and my team.

On a personal level, I enjoy playing guitar, throwing a football, thinking about working out and I am blessed with a great family- My wife, two daughters and son.
Bragging rights
I was in a slam dunk contest with Donovan McNabb (QB of the Minnesota Vikings) and Antwon Walker (formerly of the Celtics) when I went to Mt.Carmel High School in Chicago. Despite the crowd cheering for a 6'0 underdog I lost first round.

I purchased a Honda Pilot from Fisher Auto. Due to the fact that I am a vendor of theirs from Chicago they had to make special arrangements. In fact, they had a vehicle in stock that was very similar to the vehicle I was looking for but it didn't have the interior I was wanted. Due to the high demand and low supply of 2012 Honda Pilots at the time I was unsure they would be able to find exactly what I was looking for. Within 24 hours I received a call letting me know they found the exact vehicle I wanted. A job well done. Though it's a 12 hour drive I would have to say it was worth it. :)
