Setting Sail for 2009 on a Pirate Ship

pirateshipSo, over the past few weeks I have been really mean to all of my friends on Twitter.  I have been teasing them about a “secret project” that I was working on and kept promising to tell everyone what I was up to.  Starting mid-week I began leaking little bits of info such as that I needed to look for an apartment in Boston.  Well, today I’m happy to announce that the secret is out!

I have decided to set sail aboard a pirate ship with Chris Brogan.  We have just raised the sails and pushed away from the dock  This pirate ship is New Marketing Labs, our new media marketing agency and educational company.  In my role as General Manager, I will be working hand-in-hand with Chris and will be responsible for the operations and execution of our agency work with our amazing clients.  I will also be responsible for assisting in the delivery of our educational events, including our New Marketing Summit events, New Marketing Bootcamps, webinars and a host of our awesome ideas that we’re busy coming up with.  Over the next weeks and months we will have exciting announcements which will be my new “secret projects” that I tease all of you with.

While all of this is going to be A TON of work, I’m looking forward to hustlin and working my head off.  This is an amazing opportunity and I thank Chris for believing in me.  I can’t wait to learn from the teacher.  I also look forward to working with all of the wonderful people that I’m going to get to meet.
