Attn: New England Lawyers! Learn how to ROCK Marketing at the 7th Annual Super Marketing Conference.

If you haven’t heard of the Annual Super Marketing Conference you’ve been missing out!  I am particularly fond of this unique conference held every year in the northeast, that draws big name speakers from far and wide. Why I love it:  Get expert strategies in an intimate setting. Speakers are always happy to talk and actually have time to do so because there aren’t 10,000 people there! Lobster rolls, for real.

No matter what your guilty pleasure of choice is, CSI, Law and Order, Suits or the often-ridiculous ramblings of Ally McBeal they all have one thing in common.

You will be frustrated, and for most, head back into the marketplace looking for the next big thing. Only to go through the same painful cycle of implementation and failure again.
