Friday Finale: Content Wrap-Up for the Week of August 14th, 2017

Part of what makes us human here at Octave Marketing is that we like to share what we've learned on a regular basis so that our friends, family, leads, customers and colleagues can grow and develop together, both professionally and personally.

Similar to our friends at Moz who have their weekly Whiteboard Fridays with Rand Fishkin ("Wizard of Moz") or Tim Ferriss' 5-Bullet Friday, we thought it would be fun to pull together some of our regular go-to pieces, tips, tricks and quotes from the week.  

The goal here is to produce our "Friday Finale" wrap-up every, well, Friday (doh). And remember to use the hashtag #FridayFinale if you decide to share what you've learned from our weekly posts.  Enjoy!

Synergy Coworking in Madison, Wisconsin - Ok, so this isn't EXACTLY an event. But we did check out this fantastic coworking space on the west side of Madison, and we did take some time to sit down and talk business with owner Eugenia Podesta. If you live in Madison or are just passing through and need a space to work, give her a call. They have drop-in day rates for those last minute office space needs.
