About Frank Reed
First of all, thanks for taking the time to read my blog. My name is Frank Reed and I sincerely hope your visit(s) here have benefited you in some way. Please let me know your thoughts regarding the content you find on www.frankthinking.com. In addition to Frank Thinking I have the privilege of being a regular contributor to Andy Beal’s Marketing Pilgrim blog and Mike Moran’s Biznology blog as well. I am forever indebted to them both for those opportunities.
Why the name Frank Thinking? Well, aside from the obvious (it is me thinking and writing after all) it’s a chance to talk in a frank (honest and truthful) manner about areas of sales and marketing that I have experience in. Do I expect to create some monster blog that will bring thousands to read my ideas? I don’t know. I’m doing this to help my professional growth, to network with other people of like and unlike mind as well as giving readers some insight into what I see in the internet marketing industry that can possibly help them in some way.
I have over 20 years of business experience with most of that occurring in a variety of sales and business development roles. My resume includes selling for Madison Square Garden, PSINet, CompuCom and others. I have sold hard products and I have sold intangibles. I have sold services. Hopefully, I have not sold my soul in the process .
I have a B.S. in Marketing from Boston College (I always chuckle at the idea of my Marketing degree being BS). I am originally from New Jersey and I am very proud of it.
I am married (for 15 wonderful years) to Hope. She’s a blogger as well in the area of scrapbooking so here is a shameless plug for her 4thememories blog. We have been blessed with three amazing kids. Our two cats are loved by most in the house. We live in Wake Forest, NC which is a really neat part of the Triangle area of central North Carolina (home to RTP). It’s a good life.
Thanks again for visiting and I hope it has been worth your time.
