I got into this crazy and wonderful business on December 1st, 1982. I wanted to teach high school and continue having my summers in Maine as a camp counselor and as a Maine Registered State Guide. I have son who is in college and my daughter lives with me.
My favorite saying about the Ad Specialty/Promotional Product/SWAG business is, “This is probably the only business you can be in and not know what you are doing and make a living”.
In all seriousness, I consider my responsibility in my clients branding and marketing projects as a consultant. I define my client’s expectations, budget, and what the goal is they are trying to achieve. To be successful in this business you must determine your client’s end game. This business is not for the faint of heart because I am constantly meeting deadlines and challenging myself in coming up with ideas for each project. I consider myself a part of my client’s advertising and marketing team.
