Presidential prediction

It’s 11am and I just got back from voting. I usually wait until the ‘on the way to work’ crowd leaves and the lines aren’t as long.

So tomorrow either Romney or Obama will be president for the next 4 years.  After months of political ads, publicity, and social media arguments, thankfully it all ends tonight.

And while I won’t say who I voted for, I will say that whoever

‘it’s not your fault.’ It’s a very powerful marketing approach to

use it for a good cause by selling stuff that really helps people.

Figure out who the enemy is in your niche and use it to your

So my prediction is… maybe Obama, maybe Romney, entrepreneurs will find a way to win either way 🙂
