I am sitting in a dorm room at Worcester State University as I write this. It’s weird to be in a dorm room. Let’s just say it’s been a while since I’ve slept in a room with nothing more than a small bed, a desk and cinderblock walls. I suspect I wouldn’t do well in prison. And then there’s the whole showering in the shared bathroom down the hall. (Don’t worry, I brought flip flops.)
But it’s better than driving another three hours back up to Maine after teaching for three hours about marketing substance abuse treatment, prevention and recovery programs. And right before dinner too.
I’m at the New England Institute for Addiction Studies (NEIAS) Summer School. I’ve taught at two other NEIAS “schools” and have always enjoyed the diverse group of addiction professionals that they attract from all around New England.
If you are interested, you can take a look at my presentation slides. While my focus was on the substance abuse treatment, prevention and recovery, the basic marketing principles apply for anyone with a business.

Can you relate? Bonus points if you comment with a haiku!
Oh, and I’ve got another trip planned for next week too that I’m super excited about. I’ll give you more details in this week’s Philanthropy Friday!
