I’m taking a rest. Please come back the week of August 16.

IV Words is on summer break. New posts will begin showing up again around August 16, and the next e-blast to subscribers will hit inboxes on Thursday, August 19. Thank you for reading and supporting IV Words! Please enjoy the remainder of your July, and keep up the good fight!

(Unfortunately, no, my wife and I are not hanging out on a beautiful dock on the bay. The back yard certainly is inviting, though….)

Martin C. Fredricks IV

Martin C. “Red” Fredricks IV here. I’m husband to an amazing woman who is also my best friend, dad to three outstanding kids, Fargoan (North Dakota, that is), proud introvert, veteran messaging strategist/copywriter, blogger (https://ivwords.com) nonprofit founder (https://theclimateknights.org/) and big-time reader. As they say, if you're gonna write good stuff, you have to read good stuff. A ginger, too - ergo the "Red" - although some of it's going white. Cinnamon-Sugar, I call it. Tattooed to boot; seven so far. At age 54, I'm stilling crankin' AC/DC & Metallica, but now and again I spin some Eric Church and Black Uhuru, too. I love hanging out with my (much) better half, spending time with our kids, writing, hiking, riding my mountain bike and reading.
