It’s been a busy month full of hard work and nice surprises and I am proud of some pretty cool things I was able to accomplish. I finally received the printed copies of my book 52 KILLER Marketing Tips, if you haven’t purchased yours yet, go grab one at Amazon! In addition to the first swim at my pool and getting out to run on my local trail, I also launched a new jewelry line – eclektics.com – stayed up all night to get photos of the blood moon, and enjoyed a pleasant Easter holiday with family. I have had some super rich moments of sharing love and friendship and creating new opportunities – I am sure May will be no different.
Spring is definitely warming up, so let’s get out and enjoy all the goodies our fine Metroplex offers: live music, parks, festivals and food. So here we go – Lyric Marketing’s HOT TOP 10 list for May. Hope to see you out and about!
