HIđź‘‹. I'M GLENN.

I've been helping businesses put a SPIKE in their sales since 2004 at spike.co.nz. I believe the value of your business is in your customer database – and that email marketing is still the most effective and measurable way to unlock that potential. I started writing the MondayMotivator in 2004 to stay top of mind and kickstart my week. I didn't miss a Monday, including holidays, for over 10 years, took a break and then relaunched it and haven't missed a Monday since. I also write minimotivators 5-6 times a week. Sign up for the MondayMotivator today and I'll see you on Monday :)

Today’s minimotivator on expanding your language and world

The limits of my language mean the limits of my world. – Ludwig Wittgenstein Now I’m not going to stick with Wittgenstein’s original premise with this quote as he was referring to philosophical things beyond my grasp. However, I believe language is both powerful and limiting. If you only speak one language that is the […]

Today’s minimotivator by Neil Gaiman on hats, special hats.

Today’s minimotivator. Some hats can only be 
worn if you’re willing to 
be jaunty, to set them 
at an angle and to walk 
beneath them with a 
spring in your stride as 
if you’re only a step away 
from dancing. They 
demand a lot of you. – Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys Would you such a […]
