The Elements of a Practical Marketing Strategy

Like Sand Through an Hourglass


It’s been an eventful few weeks in the Aldridge household. Many of you shared the long and windy road that my beautiful wife and I took to parenthood, and it’s remarkable to me that a further ~5 years have passed.

Starting a child at school has triggered many unpleasant memories of my school years. On our recent trip to Malaysia, with no planning, we were fortunate to meet 8 (!) different families who are pursuing Homeschooling, Worldschooling, or Unschooling – mostly while travelling the world.

Blackboard Fridays Episode #46 –  How to Create a Marketing Strategy that Works

Most business owners I talk to do very little Marketing.

Watch this week’s video or read the summary article here.

See you next Friday,

With love,
