Today’s Interview is with Melody Tholstrup, Owner of My Size Marketing in Madison, Alabama. Melody spent a number of years taking care of clients while working for other agency owners. When the agency she was working for closed her clients still wanted her help and that is how My Size Marketing was born. Melody gives some great advice about what small business owners aren’t doing consistently when it comes to advertising. Really enjoyed my conversation with Melody, I always love talking Marketing and she knows her stuff!
