Paddleboarding and Business :: A Tale of Perseverance

GreenRope

The first time I tried to stand up on a board was in a lagoon in north San Diego county. Looking back, there were a lot of obvious parallels when I started my first company, CoolerEmail, 15 years ago. We were first-movers in a new industry. Prices were going down. I’ve spent money on PR agencies that did nothing for us (several times – I won’t hire another PR agency ever again).

As brands embrace publishing, they’re becoming first-movers and capitalizing on the channels that allow them to tell stories with some actual substance, like this recent collaboration between Medium and Marriott hotels.
