About dmkthinks: How did it start?

Back in 2009, when I started dmkthinks, I had no idea what I was doing. I was still in college. I knew I wanted to share something with the world…I just wasn’t sure what.

College me, circa 10 years ago. I also had a terrible haircut, was pale as a ghost, and liked to drink a lot of jungle juice…

So, I started writing about whatever came to mind.

Electronics you should own. How to improve your company’s Twitter presence. Even how I managed to put on 30 lbs of weight (intentionally) to go from skinny to…well, less skinny.

And then it started picking up!

2,500+ page views per month and 110+ email subscribers later, I’m still here.

At a high-level, this site is all about winning strategies for your small business. Whether that’s Twitter, UX and web design, marketing, customer psychology — or even how to be healthier so you can be more productive — I cover the entire strategy ecosystem.

Thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoy.
