Safe Journeys, BlogBoy

Mar 1 2013

Brian Lusk was a pioneer. He was at the epicenter of BlogSouthwest. In the beginning there was no strategic blueprint yet to follow. It was all about the bravery of a brand, Southwest Airlines, revealing its soul for the world to see.

With Brian in the middle of it, the strategy just worked out. And the rest made history.

Never before did I think we’d be writing about a guy like Brian this way...
