Advice To The Ten Years Ago Me

I was talking to Leah about a project I worked on ten years ago, and the question came up of what advice would I give that version of myself — from 2009 Dave to 1999 Dave. Here are the three thoughts that popped in to my head:

  • Don’t worry, AOL is not going to remain/become the browser/platform of choice.
  • Trust your instincts on digital engagement strategy; the business jerks will catch up to it.
  • Ask for forgiveness more often and permission less.

Stay classy, 1999 Dave.


  1. I’m gonna need to write this out to myself.. “Hey there recent graduate with a degree in Chemistry, go ahead and pitch the heavy text books, you’ll never look back.”
