Spencer earned his Inbound Marketing, HubSpot, and HubSpot Partner Certifications in 2010, and has been practicing and teaching inbound marketing to businesses ever since. Spencer has also obtained the Inbound Sales Certification. There's a lot of moving parts when it comes to marketing, and Spencer specializes in strategy and lead generation.
Personally, you can find Spencer at Chipotle three times a week where their team knows him by name. In the summers, you'll find him outside playing doubles volleyball or hiking the Colorado mountains. In the winter, he's at the gym lifting and off season training for volleyball.
Spencer is also an avid reader and lifetime learner. He read 50 business, marketing, self-help, and real estate books in 2015. This has now become an annual event aiming for 35-50 books each year.

Bora Bora (or someplace with the huts over the water)
It’s the right balance of creativity and numbers (data) for me. Plus, marketing drives everything in the business forward. Without marketing, there are no leads and no sales. For me, marketing = growth and I think you should always be growing in some capacity.

Best Travel Memory
Taking a small boat over to Positano, Italy with my wife - the views of the coastline were incredible and we lucked out getting a 10 person boat with unobstructed views vs. the 200 person ferry we were supposed to have.
Creating a company out of nothing. It’s fun to look back at the beginning and realize there was just an idea and some fire behind it, and now we have a team with even more fire behind the idea (and the idea has expanded and morphed). The accomplishment is really in the personal growth I’ve been able to experience through this process and the person I’ve become.

Celebrating Platinum with the team at the baseball game and again in Boston at the INBOUND conference. Everyone worked really hard to get to that milestone, and it was fun to take a breath and celebrate.
