It's true. I was told by someone who I respect with more than a billion dollars in the bank to forget about developing Robotic Marketer, the world's first robotic and AI based technology that develops marketing strategies in minutes, not months. I thought about it for a nanosecond. I had this moment of being scared and defeated. Then I said to myself "stuff that!". I truly believe that I can do anything I set my mind to - and I'm right. 
An extraordinary thing happened yesterday. I saw someone through their eyes. Their vulnerability, insecurities, hopes and dreams - and their next move will define them more than they realise.
Marketing Eye put an incredible amount of effort into delivering world-class marketing strategies to clients. We have invested heavily in research and development, and of course, developing the world's first Robotic Marketer.  When it comes to accolades, we never enter awards or accept nominations, but we do find that being in good company is positioning gold.

My marketing conundrum - please help!

I once had to hire a law firm, and at the time I didn’t have a lot of money to throw around. I was growing a business, and every cent counted.

Last night I had two hours sleep. I lay in bed for hours on end tossing and turning, thinking about a whole heap of things.
Today is one of those days. I woke up every hour from midnight, ready to get up and pack my bags for yet another trip.

What young people really want

I have spent my weekend looking at the big picture. Where is my business going? How am I and the rest of my team going to get it there? What is going to make the company more unique? How do we retain our talented team? What incentives do we need to have in place? All the normal questions really.
There are many reasons why people are held back from reaching their full potential. Some are due to circumstances that they feel they cannot get out of. Other reasons may be that they have commitments over their heads. Or perhaps it's them. They dream big, but do nothing about it.

How one company nailed the group 'hug'

They are an affectionate bunch - by accident. It's not how they intended to be and it certainly is not politically correct to hug your colleagues particularly in this era of 'harassment' claims, but someone had to do it, and they did it right.
In October, Marketing Eye will host its first corporate retreat for staff from around the world. We have put a lot of thought into where we should go, what sort of program would benefit employees, what our objectives are, and how do we engage our employees to go on the ride of growing the business to the next level.
