Twists and Turns

This morning is a beautiful day. And yet during my walk to work, I was thinking about the twists and turns my career has taken. First a newspaper reporter — that didn’t work. Then my first ‘advertising’ job at the in-house department at a department store in Philadelphia. Then Baltimore. Then St. Louis. Then New York City. Hired. Fired twice. My own agency. Working on the client side. And now my latest turn, back in New York City.
I’ve had amazing highs, and crazy lows. But I have to admit, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love what I do. I love the people I work with. I love creating something from nothing.
But I also love that I never know what will happen on any given day. I love the twists and turns. I love the uncertainty. I always say, if I wanted a 9-5 job I would have chosen something else.
And now after all these years in advertising, I can safely say, I wouldn’t do it any other way.
