Q&A with Mark Schmukler
How long have you been a part of the Philly HUG? How has Philly HUG benefited you and your career?
Sagefrog Marketing Group (Sagefrog.com) has been a HubSpot Partner since 2014, but 2017 is just our second year in the Philly HUG. It is an opportunity to better understand what's on the mind of Hubspot users, plus network and socialize with people in the local community based on a shared interest.
I am the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. I am responsible for branding and business development.
What's your biggest challenge in your role?
Finding enough time to do all things I want to do while continuing to balance my life. To address this, I often work to combine activities. For example, last week I rented a room in Philly, used their fitness center, attended the Philly HUG, a Goldman Sachs 10KSB scholarship program and visited the Barnes museum with my family.

What's your favorite spot in Philadelphia?
My favorite spot in Philadelphia is the Barnes Foundation art museum which holds one of the finest private collections of paintings in the world including works by Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso.
Tell us about your typical morning routine.
It's an early group training workout at the fitness center, answering emails, pouring through social media sites including Linkedin, and listening to business books on Audible.
What's your "drink"?
In the morning it's a Starbucks Venti Pike, At night it's a Bluecoat (Philadelphia craft gin) and tonic, or a California red wine.
