Transform Your Content from Predictable to Provocative with This Bold Method

Stop for a moment to think about a super-athlete. A person who won 122 consecutive races and broke the world record four times. That super-athlete is Edwin C. Moses, a man who completely dominated the 400-meter hurdle event and won every race in sight between 1977 and 1987. And then it happened. On June 4, 1987, in Madrid, Spain, Danny Harris beat Moses.

5 bots to try this week: Botpress, Douchebag Strategist, Web Capture, Postcard, Would-be Friend

Every company has that one person who loves to hear themselves talk at meetings. This person offers oh-so clever insights that are nothing more than jargon-laden platitudes.
