Week One of 2022: Am I ready for 2022? I think I'm ready. Are you ready?

Jan 03, 2022

Best meme I've seen the captures my feelings heading into 2022, "perhaps instead of a new year, maybe we should get a pre-owned certified year instead." No doubt that uncertainty lies ahead and nothing good (or bad) is promised to us. But I for one am planning to bend 2022 into a good year. The key is to keep talking and sharing and coming together. Personally and professionally, there is no going it alone. We're here for you.

Quick recap on Beeler.Tech last year and why we feel good heading into this year: 76 Beeler.Tech events last year. From First Impressions to Virtual Roundtables and from publisher-only calls to a couple of in-person events, we did a $%@%@$ lot this year all thanks to our community and our partners.

 

Is our plan to do more this year? We're not going to try to do more events (though with 30+ already on the books, it's hard not to see that happening) but to do them better. This past year was about proving out the Beeler.Tech concept of community. This year is about taking community to the next level.

(Holy cow this caffeine is kicking in! Whoop! Whoop!)

Anyhooo. Get on board. Let's do this!

A virtual CES Alternative: I'll just put it out there that if you're not going to CES, you might want to give the Beeler.Tech Virtual Happy Hour on Jan 7th at 4pm ET a try. We'll talk tech trends for 2022, recap our holidays and raise a glass to the new year. Come join us!


Quick note about the Virtual Happy Hour: You are all invited – it's not a publisher only thang. Even a certain zoom bomber (Jade, where are you?) might be allowed back if she behaves herself.  Come join us!


CES Update: 0% of attending. 
TD Foundation Gala (Jan 19th): 100% chance of attending if it happens.

New Year: New Voices!

We're continuing our support of the Minority Report in January because we need to hear new voices and because we want to reach the amazing audience that Kerel and Erik have built. Connect with them or connect with us if you'd like to support this important cause.

(yeah, yeah, yeah - the Beeler.Tech podcast is coming back later this month. How these guys got to 124 is simply remarkable!)

"Freedom Lies in being Boulder"

- Robert Frost with some freedoms taken with the original quote
I told you there would be bad Boulder puns from now until May 1st. Here's the latest:
 
  • The event is invite-only, but that doesn't mean you can't raise your hand to be involved. 
  • The slack channel for Base Campers (Boulderers?) is now open.
  • We're going to have monthly calls to discuss the event in May. Get on board now to get invited to those calls.
 

In View/Slack Stuff:


Super quiet two weeks which is a GOOD thing: hopefully everyone is resting up for a new year. No In View post this week.

Content we appreciate

Our Peeps + Partners: if you are in the news anywhere, let us know! We want to support you (and it's hard to keep up on every source)!
Last year, this year - do you agree?

Job Seeker #83


This Los Angeles based senior sales leader has built and/or led existing digital media/SaaS sales teams for startups and market leaders alike. Over the last three years he was fortunate to be able to find a way to balance family and volunteering opportunities while operating a referral-only digital media consulting business. He has made the decision to jump back into a FTE role and is looking to provide senior executive leadership as well as revenue and product strategy for this next opportunity. While he has handled a $70MM/yr book of business on his own, the last decade has been spent leading and mentoring overachieving sales teams, influencing senior executives internally and externally as well as effectively collaborating with internal partners to build amazing ad experiences and partnerships. He is equally adept and comfortable in either brand or programmatic environments. He is comfortable operating with little oversight and ambiguity while helping build in necessary rigor and procedures.
