You Can't Go Home Again

Visiting the old marketingdriven.com blog is like trying to go home after you've been out in the world...everything looks different. But one thing that I noticed as I went through the archives was the continuous push I have had over the past couple of years to write, to think and experience marketing from a totally different perspective.

When I first started teaching at UCLA, I remember how difficult it was to try to explain something that I knew by instinct and did by rote. The value is that I was forced to rethink how I use language and how to communicate effectively. It's humbling.

So I'm home for a quick visit, remembering how I first started this blog and somewhat nostalgic about it. But I'm on the plane back to marketingbytesman because everyone has to move on. Won't you please join me?
