About Abraham Harrison LLC

About Abraham Harrison LLC

Traditional advertising, public relations, and marketing agencies are spending a lot of money and poaching a lot of talent to convince you they get how to reach folks online, but they don't. They're putting lipstick on a pig. Madison Avenue doesn't get it, 50-year-old firms don't get it, and your local PR shop doesn't get it either.

Manolo Blahnik Feminism: the Right to Choos

Manolo Blahnik Feminism: the Right to Choos

I call the new feminism Manolo Blahnik Feminism, which is a super-sexual, super-sexy, and super-confusing form of self-empowerment. Ariel Levy calls it "raunch culture" and I believe that it is going to blow up in American women's faces.

Fake it ‘Til You Make It

There is a slogan I remembered this morning which brought everything together for me: fake it ‘til you make it. A couple years ago I suffered from obesity, high blood pressure, weak knees, and bad habits. I decided to take this pithy slogan and pretended to be a healthy and see what would happen.
