The Future of ABM, Rebranding Lessons From WW, & Rethinking Agency Profitability...This Is THE LATEST!

 

I don't want to toot my own horn, but I've kind of always had an entrepreneurial spirit. 

When I was in fourth grade, for instance, I learned how to make fortune tellers out of paper and somehow got my classmates to buy them for 10 cents during recess (25 for those made out of "designer" wrapping paper).
