By Michael Haynes | April 6, 2018

According to Hoffman, the one thing you don’t learn as a student is to leave the beaten path. How do you be the entrepreneur of your own life?

Surely he is well aware the writings of beloved essayist Ralf Waldo Emerson who penned the famous Self Reliance essay . Emerson clearly admonishes the reader to go off the beaten path.

By Michael Haynes | March 8, 2018

In the fall of 2017, Tim Ash , CEO of Site Tuners , was the keynote speaker for the digital marketing conference  Ungagged . Typically, keynotes at conferences like this are described as stand-offish, snooty, and unapproachable. Those keynote speakers who claim that they are “approachable” will excuse themselves from conversations with conference attendees as if they are a surgeon rushing to the OR.
