Charting a New Course

What makes life so interesting are the twists and turns that take you in new and unexpected directions.

I find myself poised for my next adventure as I’ve left PlanetEye where I had an amazing opportunity to immerse myself in the fast-growing world of social media.

It was a business decision and I’m disappointed about moving on but I wish PlanetEye nothing but the best as it tackles the online travel planning market.

I’m excited about the role and potential of social media in this economic climate where companies have do more with less, and I’m looking forward to using my experience and insight to help companies embrace social media strategies and tools.

More on this soon, but if you know of any companies looking for ways to maximize their marketing and brand reach through effective social media channels, let me know at or via Twitter (markevans)

In the meantime, I’ll be spending time with friends and family, and working on meshU and mesh.

    So this is PlanetEye downsizing? Not a good sign when they let go of key team members… do you think they are going to make it?
