Inspiration to Get You ‘Big Kev’ excited about marketing
I’m on holidays next week. Just for one week. I’m not doing anything special but heck I’m looking forward to it.
It’s been a busy few months with the launch of my online marketing course and some exciting times with my clients.
The thing about holidays though is that you madly try to get as much work done as you can before you go on leave, so you can have a holiday. By the time you get to your holiday you’re stuffed!
Well that’s where I’m at. I have hit holiday preparation fatigue and need to write a blog post.
So here is a collection of inspirational marketing quotes to keep us ALL inspired. Enjoy!
