Favorite Places To Eat & Drink in Scottsdale & Phoenix

It’s April… which means everyone and their brother comes to the Phoenix Valley to visit! Bachelor & bachelorette party attendees hit up the bars & pools, Spring Training fanatics linger, and retirees & more flock to the Scottsdale & Phoenix area this time of the year for some sun.

I wanted to use today to honor the women – who I’ve worked with, who I’ve admired from afar, who I’ve competed against, who I’ve simply grabbed coffee with, and…

So it’s been like 2 years since I posted a blog about books (I even wanted to start a Bbooks Book of the month series… obviously that didn’t happen lol). But I feel like I frequently talk about staying up to date with social media and marketing trends and I link online courses I’ve taken and newsletters you can subscribe to… but I haven’t talked about any marketing books yet!! I have a love/hate relationship with marketing books, because so many these days are irrelevant within…
