Josh Mortensen20/03/20 12:17

Working in digital requires being comfortable with a rapid pace of change. The website you re-launched in Q1 feels dated by Q4. Develop a strategy for Snapchat only now everyone is on TikTok. Internet years are real. Just like it is for dogs, one year on the internet is like seven in human time. Constant evolution, disruption—you get used to it. But even the most seasoned among us could not have been prepared for the acceleration that is happening right now.
