In Here We Grow, Marcia Barnes argues that to truly help people accomplish their objectives, leaders must read, study, and seek the wisdom of people. By embracing math–a self confessed weak point in her education–Marcia learned how often businesses and marketing teams focus on creativity and lose sight of the figures attached to every marketing effort. 

Disciplined adherence to math-before-marketing means always acting in the long term best interest of her clients. If the true goal is to help people accomplish their objectives, then marketing must balance creative marketplace disruption with responsible stewardship of budgets.

At Valve+Meter, ThinkFirst describes the process Marcia’s team uses before implementing any marketing tactic on behalf of her clients.
