    Welcome to Big Cat Chronicles

    Hi and welcome to Big Cat Chronicles.  It's a new look for a blog I resurrected from its dormancy.

    The first time 'round, I launched the blog to roar my opinions on a variety of topics.  This time, though, I'll keep a tight reign to subject matter related to marketing, communications, and sales.
