My Corner of the InterWebs

People will never be replaced by machines. In the end, life and business are about human connections. And computers are about trying to murder you in a lake. And to me the choice is easy. – Michael Scott

If you’d like to follow along with me on this journey, I blog about marketing thawts, sports thawts, political thawts, bidness thawts, health thawts, spiritual thawts and try and make people laugh. Key word being try. Maybe I’ll eventually inspire you.

If you’d to like to, then go ahead and follow me on The Tweeter, like me on The Facebook, or connect with me on The LinkedIn. 


CEO / Chief Storyteller

– The Marketing Squad –
Bryce Raley Headshot - Square
I'm one of the owners of The Marketing Squad. I currently act as CEO/Chief Storyteller. I really just take out the trash and buy stuff at Costco. If I'm not stocking up on goods at Costco, I'm usually bringing in new business, building current client relationships, or getting strategic and creative with our top partners. I do my best to lead our team according to our 8 Core Values, Vision and Core Focus. I love coffee, coaching softball (and a little baseball) and playing golf, volleyball and disc golf.

What If You’re Wrong About Masks?

Not what we’re looking for with cases or deaths. Some of the places without mask mandates have lower cases than […]

You Voted for the Swamp

I’m back to blogging. We have a lot to cover these days. Why you voted for the swamp will be the first place I start. So why did you? Actually, I don’t care. Comments closed. I’ll tell you why. Cause Trump’s tweets. Cause Trump’s arrogance. Cause Fake Russia Hoax. Cause I listen to the media. […]

I Never Understood the Importance of Vision

As I’ve grown as the leader of The Squad, things that previously had little meaning to me, now capture the majority of my focus. It’s quite the shift. I’m referring to our Core Values, Vision, and Mission (Core Focus). Our operating system is another. For many years I just thought, “We operate and that’s our […]

4 Leadership Observations From Andy Griffith

Our family loves watching Andy Griffith episodes on Netflix. I grew up watching the reruns with my dad, uncles, and grandpa on TBS or TNT. The show never loses its nostalgia for me. In modern days, I may look to Seinfeld or The Office for my fix, but I’ll never lose my love for Andy […]
