It's official, SD Inbound Marketing as we once knew it is no more. In fact, most of my world as I once knew it is no more (adios craft beer and 60 lbs, hello marathons!) and I'm ready as I'll ever be to create something meaningful. The photo above is the new me (don't worry, the beard isn't going anywhere), ready to build something great that can make a real positive impact in your life. I know this is a marathon, not a sprint, and I'm ready to put in the miles for you, our team, and the community.
First and foremost, thank you for being members of the SD Inbound community. For the last several years, we hosted tons of events, workshops, conferences, and webinars to help build the Inbound community in San Diego. We went from 10 person HubSpot User Groups to 1,000+ person conferences.
There are over 3,000 of you in the community working towards developing your inbound expertise. We took it as far as we could with local events, however, our mission was to help you really master inbound marketing and grow in your career. We always knew we were just scratching the surface.
With that said, I'm extremely excited to announce we are sunsetting SD Inbound and launching Certified Mastery where we mentor, certify, and connect subject matter experts. It is a professional education program, platform, and community aimed to help you get certified for your expertise and ultimately connect with career opportunities.
Meanwhile, we will be hosting a ton of great events this year both in-person and virtually all around mastering the inbound flywheel. To kick of the year with a splash, our first event will host guest speaker Marcus Sheridan, author of of the brilliant book "They Ask You Answer," on February 25th.
I'm passionate about helping people like you, who put in the work to continue mastering your craft and apply what you learn, to grow in your career and get as much value as possible from our educational programs. As we develop our certifications, we are looking for as much feedback as possible. Don't hesitate to reach out and let me know what would help you the most.
Keep on learning!
