WHY DID YOU JOIN THE AMA?
I joined AMA shortly after graduating to expand my professional network. Joining AMA has been one of the best decisions I’ve made post-grad; the amount of support, advice and mentorship I’ve received from seasoned professionals has been invaluable.
WHAT (OR WHO) IS YOUR FAVORITE MARKETING BLOG OR THOUGHT LEADER?
Seth Godin, hands down! I love how inspiring he is – I recommend his writing to everyone.
WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU’VE BEEN INSPIRED BY LATELY?
People. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of the people that have been placed in my life, whether intentionally or by chance. I’m becoming more and more aware of how big a role connections can play in your life and it’s amazing to see how chance encounters can lead to such great things in the future.
