Crazy Things You Can Find with Google

Yesterday I was looking for an old article about my first business that I wanted to link to. In the process I came across a fantastic blog about marketing and brand creation written by another Eli Portnoy. Aside from the fact that we share a name, I think he writes a great blog and I encourage you to check it out. 

There really aren’t too many Eli Portnoy’s around that I know off. The name Portnoy is not very common, though thanks to Phillip Roth, it isn’t easily forgettable.

    Hey, Eli. Thank you for the nice comments about my blog, “The Brand Man Speaks”. Congrats on your continued success…we have been overlapping in many ways beyond our names. I too often get interviewed on NPR on consumer marketing issues…
    Thanks again

    Hi Eli,

    My pleasure. Always nice to cross paths, and I guess cyberspace was the last frontier (other than actually meeting in person).

    Best regards,
