A Tip for Tuesday – Forget about the “tool” and figure out the strategy

 |  July 17, 2012

  I originally wrote this article for the Phoenix Business Journal, where it appeared on July 6th.  Nothing has transformed our ability to communicate our messages like social media.  Sure, being able to fax a document was pretty handy and certainly the ability to share information via email made getting the information out much easier […]
