My boss loved me, my manager sort of loved me (might have resented me for doing so well, I'm not sure…), and our team was on fire!
When the market turned, and the company restructured, I found myself working in eCommerce, which I knew nothing about.
This was LIFE CHANGING because most small businesses don't have the same resources as a multi-million dollar company. And where I worked, there were THREE 7-figure brands.
Which meant I learned what REAL success in paid social and managing a budget looks like. My eyes were opened to so many ideas, not just the creative kind, but the logical kind.
"If you do XYZ, this will happen."
From training to training, I learned so much over the years, and I would always think, "Wow, I'm so thankful I was able to learn this," and "I wish I knew this when I was a marketing coordinator in the event industry!!"
