“They got my dick message!”


That has to be one of the oddest movie lines I’ve heard in a while. It refers to the character StarLord (aka Peter Quill of the Guardians of the Galaxy) as he acknowledges the help of the Nova Prime fighter squadron in defence of the planet. I know … it’s one of those you have to be there moments.

In fact, even though I grumbled a little about the movie in my recent Facebook post, I do recommend you go see it this weekend if you want a chuckle. It’s well made, great visual effects and personally I found the 70′s and 80′s music, the “black light” and “Jackson Pollock painting” joke and other subtle humour really funny. But hey, that’s just me.

Speaking of the weekend, it looks like the weather is going to blow … sorry, I can’t help you with that. Shame if it does stay grim because I know how much we all enjoy getting outside after our long Canadian winters. But hey, if you are stuck inside then there a few things I’d like you to consider.

FRIEND ME on Facebook :-)

Yup, I recently dropped my Facebook page (long story, but it has to do with a reduction in organic reach) and now I’m using my personal profile exclusively. Yes I know this means the Facebook experience is different, but I’ve always used paid advertising on FB so I’m cool with it. So if you’d prefer to connect on FB rather than Twitter or LinkedIn or G+ or heck … email, go ahead. I’m pretty chatty at times (I know … you would never have guessed) and I enjoy answering questions, discussing marketing, email, automation and so on.

On the topic of automation, the enrolment for my email marketing automation class closes NEXT WEEK. The first webinar is Friday August 8th … not yesterday as some folks thought. It’s ok, there’s still time to join the class and in case you were wondering if you can do what I will be teaching … YES YOU CAN. I assure you it’s not hard and remember, if you decide afterwards it wasn’t what you’d hoped for … ask for a refund. It’s cool. Here’s the link to sign up:

OK, lets’ wraps things up … it’s still early as I write this and I need a coffee :-)

Remember our Burlington SFN event is this coming Wednesday at IVY from 5 to 7pm. I just checked and 108 people have RSVP’d so far. I know more will connect next week but if you get the chance to RSVP beforehand, please do – it helps us with staffing and planning snacks.


And while you’re there … why not let me know if you’ll be attending the SFN TradeShow on Oct14. For more details about vendor tables (which are already selling quickly) go here:

That’s all for now, enjoy the weekend and I hope to see you next week Wednesday.
