Finely Aged Marketing
The Time Has Come
Disclaimer: This first edition of my newsletter will be the worst edition. In fact, I hope it is.
Why would I hope for this?
Reality: I’ve been putting off publishing, although I’ve been lurking in this world for 20+ years.
Truth: I planned to publish this first article last week. But, I put a bunch of “self-made” obstacles in my way because I was nervous about hitting the “ship” button.
This isn’t another newsletter about marketing, as the title might suggest.
I’m not a trained marketing exec or marketing professional. I’m an educator heading into retirement. I love to geek out about marketing, longevity, tech, finance, and more.
I’ve also been freelancing and building websites and other stuff for over 20 years. In fact, I love to build stuff, cook stuff, and create stuff. The traditional “retirement” is not in my cards. I can’t sit around and do nothing so I plan to build my future life around purpose and passion.
Let’s get started.

These are the categories I’ve chosen for now.

The 5 Best North American Train Trips to Take This Winter
I remember taking the train a few times when I was a kid, and on trips to Europe. It was pretty awesome, from the feel and sound to the walk to the food car. This is something I want to do again in the future. It should be a part of everyone’s travel experience.

Have a great week.
