Hi, I'm Casey. I've owned my own small manufacturing business in the past but it ate me alive in terms of the # of hours I had to put in. I've also done phone sales, which was pretty thankless but I always manage to learn something... I appreciated the structure that was provided for me and I'm fascinated by sales and marketing. Because of my experience and interest, I got into researching and reviewing products that help businesses run more smoothly. At some point I see myself taking on the challenge of my own biz again, but for right now I enjoy the freedom and flexibility of working without having to oversee anyone else and without having to answer to anyone. This is the first forum I've ever joined! Hopefully I can contribute my knowledge as well as find inspiration for my next venture.
