AHYBA Spurs Finish Up a Great Season

This was an exciting season for the players and families of our Arlington Heights Youth Basketball Association’s Spurs! One of my favorite hobbies is coaching youth sports, and I just wrapped up a fantastic season coaching a sixth grade boys’ basketball team that included my youngest son, Theo.  The Spurs, which won their division, fought incredibly hard at each match and made continual improvement after every game, so I am eager to see how well...


The Awards Just Keep Rolling in for Marketing RELEVANCE!

I’m feeling a little like a member of U2 at the Grammys, and it’s a pretty good feeling (U2 has received the most awards of any group in history, with a total of 22 Grammy Awards). The past few months have included one awards program after another, with Marketing RELEVANCE taking home a multitude of prestigious recognitions, and I couldn’t be prouder to work with the talented and dedicated team at Marketing RELEVANCE. It started...


Spotlight on Jeff Rutt: Friend, Home Builder and Philanthropist

The saying, “give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime” always rings true to me. Through raising my three children and coaching their sports teams, I always try to keep in mind that teaching them, instead of doing for them, impacts them for the better. They will remember these lessons for the rest of their lives. It takes a village to...


Digital Marketing and Tracking: IBS 2015 Seminars

In a few short months, I’ll be back to Vegas. I was selected to present two education sessions at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show (IBS), the world’s largest light construction show. Last year, the show was attended by 75,000 attendees! This year has been a whirlwind; and this trip to IBS (January 20-22) will be the culmination of a full year of hard work on a pursuit that I LOVE:...


So Proud of T, LEV or T-Bone Malone

I am so proud of My son Theo, and the entire Bearcat Team this year. They made it to the championship game in EVERY tournament they played in, and won 3 out of 5 of them…including a tournament we traveled to Cooperstown for. What a special team, what a special year!  Here is a video made by one of the mom’s on of the team – Julie Poplar – what a great video…


Positive Coaching

Well, it is another year of coaching my kids and their sports. It is pretty cool to think about all of the kids I have coached over the past 11 years. From the time Josh was a Purple Shark soccer player in Georgia, to this Bills football season with Theo in Illinois, I have coached all three of my kids’ teams every year in baseball, soccer, basketball, softball, football, skiing and a lot of other...


Happy Fifth Birthday mRELEVANCE

Holy cow, we are five years old! Time really does fly when you’re having fun. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were signing contracts as three companies — Mitch Levinson Consulting, Inc., Flammer Relations, Inc. and the client. Five years is light years in terms of internet marketing. To put it all in perspective, when we started mRELEVANCE the word social media had not be coined and blogging was certainly not a...


Congratulations Josh

To my son Josh: I just want you to know how proud of you I am. Congratulations on your Bar Mitzvah (well, it was a year ago) and  your recent 14th birthday.  You rock my world!


Sandi Levinson | My strength, My hero

My mother meant a lot to me, she was a great woman and truly a good person. Everyone who met her was her friend instantly. Maybe it was her smile, maybe it was her genuine desire to help others, maybe it was her sense of humor…whatever it was, she will be missed. She passed away February 4, 2011. Below are simply the words I said at her funeral service – these words can not express...
