If you follow college football in the 20s, you know who Deion Sanders is ... the wildly successful coach of Jackson State, and the newly appointed head coach at Colorado.
Name one person who promotes the omnichannel thesis in retail, or who promotes catalog marketing ... name one ... who has this level of passion? Name one. I'll wait for your answer.

If you find somebody in this industry who cares like he does, follow that person.
