  • About this blog

    Marketing, consulting, social media, digital, public relations, sports fanatic, golfer, adventurer, aspiring photographer. That's me - Anthony Tham - in a sentence.

    My focus for this blog was in marketing and social media. But I also talked about local happenings in Oregon's capital, my aspirations to become a decent photographer, and marketing trends. Whatever came to mind.

    You're probably wondering...What's with the past tense? As you might have noticed, it's been a while since I've updated this blog. I felt like my latest post was a perfect ending to a great run. Don't be sad! As the title says, "Don't Cry Because It's Over..." Instead, grab your favorite morning roast, sit back, and let's reminisce by perusing some of my work throughout this blog!

Don’t Cry Because It’s Over…

I was a junior at Portland State when I decided I was going to pursue an MBA someday. Beyond more career opportunities, I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to grow intellectually.

Seeds of Greatness

The words that come out of our mouths have the power to heal during painful times; to lift someone up during times of need; and to calm during times of uncertainty. Each one of us has the power to use our words for good.  My favorite line is, “You have seeds of greatness inside of you.” You … Continue reading


“You are a bus …

Great metaphor! “You are a bus driver. The bus, your company, is at a standstill, and it’s your job to get it going. You have to decide where you’re going, how you’re going to get there, and who’s going with you.” – Jim Collins Photo courtesy of x-hibit.

“Now Is The Time To Do”

Richard Branson is an entrepreneur. He founded Virgin Group, one of the world’s most respected brands. You might be familiar with Virgin Mobile or Virgin Airlines. But did you know that Branson has a hand in a wide range of sectors that include financial services, leisure, music, and more?! I recently came across an article … Continue reading


Time to Reflect

As we’re approaching the new year, it’s a time to look back on all that has occurred over the past 12 months. As I was going through my blog, reflecting on what I have written, I came across a post I wrote around this time last year. It was a story about a young doctor … Continue reading

In the Year 2019

I first saw the movie Minority Report starring Tom Cruise back when I was in high school. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I always wonder (I’m sure I’m not the only one) what the world will be like 10, 20, 30+ years into the future. The movie gave us a futuristic glimpse. Of course, that was … Continue reading

Don’t Stop Believing, Hold On To That Feeling

Last Friday I logged onto Facebook and saw post after post regarding the Color Run that took place that morning in Portland. Two things came to mind: 1) My friends really like paint; and 2) I have a lot of friends that run. All this talk about 5Ks and marathons made me think about my … Continue reading
