In 2011, EYMER BRAND Laboratories + Think Tank helped celebrate the annual event holiday by designing an ebook for rum maker, Cruzan.Read More
In honor of today being–“International Talk Like a Pirate Day,” I am offering a free download of my e-book, “Tweeting Blackbeard: 10 Swashbuckling Business Tips From The World’s Greatest Pirate”.
I wrote the book with my eldest son, Foster, now a freshman at Elon University. Yes, in its original form, it was a term paper about buccaneer Edward Teach, commonly known as Blackbeard. The two of us, worked together and converted an “A” paper into this fast-paced and easily digested business e-book. Perhaps, this is a form of pirating but Foster and I prefer to think of ourselves as privateers.
Just for fun, I ran the last paragraph through the official, International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Pirate Translator.

This was a bit of great news that I heard from happy client, David Meerman Scott, last evening. David has recently published his new book, The New Rules of Sales and Service: How to Use Agile Selling, Real-Time Customer Engagement, Big Data, Content, and Storytelling to Grow Your Business.
This summer, I was fortunate enough to collaborate with David, once again–as creative director, on this presentation as well as his new ebook (that released this morning), Agile, Real-Time Customer Service–that includes some excerpted material from The New Rules of Sales & Service. The ebook is under a creative commons license, so feel free to share it.
Why does David have a permanent, front row parking space at EYMER BRAND Laboratories + Think Tank headquarters?
Because in our 20+ years of working together, he has always allowed me to do what I do best. Sure, we may not always agree on the "first pass" but through constructive back and forth collaboration–we always come up with something better than what we might have created on our own.
Additionally, In the process of developing his materials, I always learn something new. In a world that changes on an almost daily basis, learning must never cease! – Doug.
