In his latest vlog (video + blog = funny word!), Geoffrey tackles the difficult question of what to do when the proverbial hits the fan and recession looms.

Geoffreys latest Guerrilla Guide piece in the Jack-Daniels-adorned September issue of the magazine unpacks the major issues for marketers to consider when recession looms:
