Social Media Principles – As shared by Ford Global, Scott Monty

Travel Montana: Helena to Havre on the Missouri River

I’ve done a poor job of keeping up with my travels in the past few months. So over the next few weeks, I’ll be catching up a bit. I’ve already written about my drive over Flesher Pass and a fun trip to Sun Valley, Idaho. In November, just before Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to […]

We could spend time angrily responding to articles like this, but defensively reacting to accusations like this aren’t getting us very far. Hence my emphasis on […]

Like a solid barn, One board at a time
