Research Notes

By Philip Morgan



I publish notes about my research here: https://researchnotes.philipmorganconsulting.com (They're notes... on my... research. That's why they're called research notes. No razzle-dazzle here, people!)

You can join an email list to get updates. It’s 80% notes and updates on my research into indie consulting and thought leadership; 20% random stuff. I share both process and results.

If we use email marketing or other personal forms of marketing, we do well to remember there are 2 markets.
