A Declaration of Honesty

I'm going to be frank with you right now.

I am not an expert.

I was sitting down to read a book at the end of the evening the other night when it hit me. Literally, I heard the lightbulb turn on above my head. (Oh wait, that was the lamp that was really there!)

What hit me was this: I'm treading water. I feel like I put a lot of effort into this site, the blog, and where does it go? I'm keeping myself afloat, but I'm not getting any closer to shore.

So, I'm writing this post to you, my readers, as a notice of intent to be frank and honest with you in all of my writings. I know that my goals are to help people and small business owners with their marketing. How do I best go about that? How do I know if I'm going down the right path?

The short answer is I don't know the answers. But I promise that we'll figure it out together, and you can read along here.
