There are an astronomical number of content marketing websites on the world wide web, and surfing through to find the good ones can be, well, a challenge.

For those of you who have not seen The Empire Strikes Back, allow me to set the scene: It’s the X-wing fighter sequence on Dagobah, and Luke Skywalker is doubtful about being able to raise his fighter from the swamp. After Jedi Master Yoda chastises him for having a defeatist attitude, Luke halfheartedly responds that he will try. Having none of that, Yoda hits him with the epic one-two punch.
Check out 25 seconds of Yoda taking Luke to school:Continue reading
