By | Thinkpierce TV, Videos | No Comments

One day I woke up, turned on the TV and experienced something amazing, a commercial by Angie’s List that focused on different “Reasons” for joining the Angie’s List service. I realized this was “shout it from the mountain top” kind of opportunity to share my own adlibbed reasons for joining Angie’s List and another Thinkpierce Video was born…check it out!
