Ride With Cox Recap – Buck Hill & Lester Beat Downs

Originally posted on Social Cox Team:

I realized this morning that #RideWithCox hadn’t been updated since our smash hit “10 Ways You’re In New Richmond” – a post that reached nearly 4,000 people.  I’m not going to pretend like this is as awesome to the general public.  Afterall, the gif count in this is substantially lower.  Here’s one though for good measure.

This was emailed to me the morning I was let go. It’s a reminder I can do my best and be a positive influence but I will never please everyone, be true to yourself.  #automarketing #truth

Inspirational, Motivational Images, Get SOME

I am pretty much convinced that we no longer need therapists or motivational speakers. The “get them up and rocking” sales trainers have become obsolete. The Tony Robbins and Ted Talks are nothing more than regurgitated fluff… mehbe.

Automarketing Social Media Conversations

One of my absolute favorite places to “Hang Out” is a little place on Facebook called Carbucks. This is the coffee house for car people created by Nancy Simmons and automotive true pro.

Automarketing Rant-Unformation Time
