Now I see my position as being among talking hope in my creation of fellow baby boomers that the best could be yet to come rather than past tense. Men and women now might have only lost a job or a loved one, neighbor or friend only lost employment. And, they’re starting to search for answers which make sense going forward into the next chapter of their own lives.
Q: What challenges have you faced that signify what you just talked about — in relation to talking hope to your creation?
Throughout the 1990s, I personally went through three reorganization or downsizing exercises, which set me to the position of having an outplacement service to discover a new job. In every scenario, I arose victorious from this search procedure. In addition to those personal experiences, I must also point out that within the past 30 years I have had a considerable amount of experience as a marketing consultant with all kinds of economic development associations in the USA and Canada. Those businesses have included foreign nations, states and provinces, cities, regional chambers of commerce, economic development corporations and partnerships, ports and airports, property developers, commercial property businesses, builders and technology businesses, among other businesses within this industry niche.
Q: Perhaps you reinvented yourself, and if so how?
Early in my career in the media sector, I discovered that the earnings career route was significantly different compared to editorial or creative leadership. Specifically, my sales and marketing leadership led me into some 13 year worker standing using a journal, in which I had been a nationwide and worldwide accounts manager. In addition, it led me into an eight year career with another journal, in which I served as Manager of Economic Development along with other duties. And it led in the last couple of years within an involvement with a journal at the Midwest with chosen accounts and working on special reports. Beyond these assignments, I also have served as the Manager of Economic Development for a set of magazines, such as my existing magazine assignment, that is the top logistics and international trade magazine in North America in editorial and marketing pages.
