Breaking a leg is never any fun. Yet people can make the best of it by having a positive attitude, colorful castings and notes of best wishes.
When I was in college, I broke my leg playing intramural soccer. I performed a slide tackle from the side, which you weren’t supposed to do and snapped my leg, severing my ankle from my leg. Ouch!
As you would expect, I saw a doctor who preformed surgery, repairing my broken leg by inserting three permanent pins, securing my leg in a full cast and requiring 8 weeks of recovery. It was a costly mistake and required a substantial repair and recovery.
Causes for a Broken Marketing Program:
As a preferred marketing agency for the Milwaukee and Chicago areas, the Autumn Consulting team is frequently asked to diagnose broken marketing programs. Some of the frequent causes of broken programs are:

- choosing a shortcut (e.g. paying for the cheapest or inexperienced vendor)
- forgetting about an on-going growth plan
