AMAZON DAZE!

Thoughts on Mass Media and Audience Driven Markets…
 I have always looked at businesses as living breathing entities. Just like the people who own them and the people who frequent them; businesses are affected by time and the changes time brings.

By the time I got my driver’s license and my brand new 1963 Plymouth Barracuda I was the family car wash and wax expert.
