Product failures are a good thing if you learn from them

I became a developer with no reason at all. When I was young my dreams were different, but when the school decided to not open up the courses for what I was interested in, I had to make a choice. The IT Field seemed to have the most chances of employment and so, here I …

You can spot marketers, marketers wannabe, and the true one

Today we live in a strange world. Not because of the pandemic, but because of how it affected the way we do marketing. Well, it wasn’t the pandemic itself. This kind of marketing was there long before it. Pandemic simply amplified it. If you take a spin at linkedin it’ll be quite easy to spot …
