Randall McCarley doesn’t let a hurricane (Katrina), or a new baby (born last week), slow him down. The site owner of 14th Colony Web Development and Promotion, Rand has been on a quiet mission to get inside the minds and stories of a variety of people who help make up the search engine marketing industry.
