When we started in the industry there was no social media and so many other luxuries we enjoy now. Progress was completely dependent on your talent, humility, word of mouth, and trust.
I appreciate my colleagues who work tirelessly and often times without recognition.
I appreciate my family who have always surrounded me with love and acceptance. My children sacrificed a lot and stayed long periods without a mother. At one point, my daughter became my PA and is still my Associate Manager to date.
All Marketers that believed in me from the very beginning. Too numerous to mention”.
