What inspired you to pursue a career in marketing?
I'm an entrepreneur at heart. It’s thrilling to watch a business grow, so it only makes sense that I would build my career in an industry focused on helping others build their business. Strategic marketing in itself is an entrepreneur. What I mean is that, even if you are a large corporation, your marketing plan must operate as an entrepreneur. Its primary objective must be to grow the business while maintaining efficiency, agility, flexibility, portability and efficacy.
It's challenging, but I really enjoy using my entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and technical skills to solve business problems and deliver marketing solutions.
What do you like most about marketing?
