Besides the very obvious (I’m writing this on my Apple MacBook Pro as my iPhone glistens next to my keyboard.), Steve Jobs left a lasting impact on all our lives. My first experience with a Mac was years ago when my dad brought one home from work. Although boxy and simple compared to its most recent models, many awe-inspired moments were spent on that computer. SEO and internet marketing would never be what it is today without the influence of a visionary like him. He made being a geek seem cool. His creativity inspired my drive to excel, to keep pushing toward a new way of thinking, not only in marketing but life. “Love what you do. Keep looking, don’t settle.” What a great mantra to live by.
