    Google and Facebook in Ad Scheme?

    Big Tech Takeover

    Big Tech Takeover

    Big Tech Takeover is the story dominating all headlines the past 3-4 days. I take a serious look at what has happened, the ramifications and will spend a considerable time on the soapbox. Never ever build your castle on rented land and the lessons that continue to be learned. But in this case, when you have everyone joining the pile-on, an extinction event can occur.

    I also announce a new private podcast called Insider. Become an Insider today to get access to this very private, very personal show that will give you complete behind the scenes access to yours truly.
