What’s this dude all about?
Thanks for dropping by, the name’s Ross.
I’m passionate about technology, the future, good people, good coffee and storytelling. I write about a wide range of topics that interest me and teach people how to use content, social media and storytelling to achieve their business goals. As an entrepreneur, I often write about the highs and lows of entrepreneurship along with the lessons I’ve learned over the last few years.
I’m the founder of Hustle & Grind (eCommerce store for entrepreneurs), Crate (content marketing software) and offer content marketing services to brands and startups around the world. I use this site to share my thoughts on marketing, business, life and things that inspire me. I wrote Stand Out: The Content Guide for Entrepreneurs, The Hustle Manifesto and I share exclusive content to thousands of people on a semi-regular basis on my newsletter.
What am I currently working on?
What else do you do?
I give presentations about marketing and communications on the regular!
