  • The Agency Business as Fountain of Youth

    Published on February 3, 2011.

    Back in the 1950s and before, it was said that, “Advertising is a young man’s game.” After a couple of succeeding decades, the truism was amended to “Advertising is a young person’s game.” That was in recognition of the increasing leadership role of women in the industry.

    Published on October 11, 2010.

    Someone once told me, “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” And, so I’ve been saying the same thing to clients and prospects for years. Thus, it is not surprising that I have been writing, contributing to, editing, and amending all kinds of plans during my tenure in the agency business. Business Plans. Marketing Plans. Public Relations Plans. Media
