I don't mind humility. It is the one trait I feel most of us lack the most. I'm not talking about getting down on yourself, I'm speaking of reaching out and simply saying, "I live, help me learn." It is one of the things this forum allows us to do...if we let it, allow it, enforce it, & embrace it.
Before I go any further, let me say I've lived in the state of Pennsylvania for 28 out of the 30 years I've lived here on planet earth. I love the Steelers, have a soft spot for the Pittsburgh Pirates, and am not a huge fan of Philly fans, unless we are talking Professional Wrestling. As far as the Eagles, Fliers, Sixers, & Phillies Fans...best of luck chaps, but I'll be rooting for the freaking Giants, Rangers, Knicks, & Yankees if I have too.
I love Bonfires, Keg Parties, Autumn, & Shoveling. That's Pa in my book...Beer, Fire, Fall, & Blue Collar Work. I live in Allentown now, so I don't mean to offend the Philly crowd....but I'm a Pittsburgh type of guy. I come from a small town 2 hours North called Clarion, you may have heard of it, and after being here (In Allentown) for a large amount of time...I realize Billy Joel wasn't so off with the song. Look it up, good tune. Or, just click on the link provided. But I do like it here in Pa, and am growing a soft spot for Philly fans along the way. I'm growing Local. Which leads me to...>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
In my own marketing efforts, I would love to learn how I can better utilize the aspect of Localism on this forum. Herein lies my cry for help.....so Betty Ford me on the Marketing Dilemma. My dilemma is I love to learn, which is so opposite of how I was when I was attending and graduating high school & college. I love to learn not only how professionals go about marketing to a local audience, but how a local audience responds to the marketing thrown at them.
Let this post, for better or worse, be free for all to read & comment if desired. Or, just email yours truly to teach me something I've always yearned to learn......The Power of Knowledge.
