A Big Thanks to…

Brilliant People to Follow and Learn from

My views are the culmination of a thousand conversations I’ve had over the past decade with hundreds of marketers, consultants, and other folks inside and outside the email marketing industry.

Throughout my book, I include quotes from colleagues, fellow authors, and other folks whom I respect. I share those quotes in the slide deck here as well.

And in the Acknowledgments of my book, I tip my hat to some of the people that have influenced me most. Below you can find details about them, including where to read their best stuff and how to connect with them on social media.
