By |July 2nd, 2007|

About a month ago, I started experiencing some annoying irritation in my left eye.  A few days later, I noticed that I could not close my left eye without also closing my right one.  Then I realized that the left side of my face was slightly numb.  Fearing a possible stroke, I drove myself to […]

No Small Feet

Babies’ feet?  What could babies’ feet possibly have to do with the re-branding of Ambassador Consulting?  As it turned out, they had everything to do with some of the early-on inspiration provided by our advertising agency.  They cited the Saturn automobile company as a case study.  By focusing upon the people who drive […]
