How Did You Break Into The Industry / Your First Job
I sort fell in the industry...I had a friend, who knew a friend....who got me an interview w/ the General Manager of a radio station...I didn't even know what I was interviewing for. I eventually got offered a position in the advertising sales department BUT no salary...only a percentage of what I brought in. I wanted to be there so badly that I accepted the position...15 years later I realize it was the smartest move I ever made.
Long Term Career Goal
To grow my advertising firm to a level where I can compete with "The Big Boys" in the advertising world. To specialize in educating consumers how to market to diverse groups via using methods they may not be accustomed to using. All while serving growing a talent pool of youthful thinking professionals w/ an old school work ethic to grow and start their own business.
