Hindsight bias can cause you all sorts of problems in business and life. Remember this the next time you hear someone say, "hindsight is 20/20".

It's not.
Pixar co-founder Ed Catmull describes a car accident that was 2 inches away from ending Pixar before it started. And explains why hindsight is not 20/20.

NBC gets clever with it's #marketing for their upcoming coverage of the Premier League. Jason Sudeikis plays Ted Lasso - An American Football Coach in London
NBC Sports coverage of the 2013-2014 Premier League has some clever marketing to go with it. SNL's Jason Sudeikis is Ted Lasso - An American Football Coach in London.

If only more #smallbusiness marketing followed Seth Godin's advice, the world would be a better place. These are a couple of my favorites

Pretty excited about this one. I'm helping with some internet marketing for an album that Cris Jacobs (from Baltimore's own The Bridge) recorded with Ivan Neville (The Neville Brothers, Dumpstaphunk), Brady Blade(Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews), and Tony Hall(Harry Connick Jr., Trey Anastasio, The Meters). 

All these guys are ridiculous musicians. 

The video on the Indiegogo page has got parts of some of the tunes and explains how the project came to be. You can also pre-order a digital version of the album, get it on vinyl, or get tickets to the release shows in Baltimore, New Orleans or Denver.

Excuse the poorly cropped graphic:)

While I was watching the CNN coverage of the shooting at the Mall in Columbia Saturday, I was turned off by a witness that called in and seemed to promote her store. That got me thinking about the dangers of Newsjacking. 
During the recent shooting at the Columbia Mall, CNN's interview with a local store manager made me cringe. It felt like an awful attempt at newsjacking.

Story
Tagline
Small business marketing consultant
Introduction
I live in Columbia, Maryland, and work as a small business marketing consultant helping small businesses improve and maximize their online presence through improving their seo, ppc, and content marketing strategies. For the last decade, I've been working with independent small business owners ranging from bars & restaurants to multi-million dollar organizations. I'm particularly passionate about music, especially anything inspired by the blues. In my free time, I'm either on the eastern shore of Maryland in a sand trap at Eagle's Landing, somewhere reading a copy of Think and Grow Rich, or spending time with my parents and their five huskies.
Bragging rights
I once told Derek Jeter and Jason Giambi to get out of my bar
