Adventures in Marketing

Well if you haven't followed me, and well who has?  I don't post very often.  I have ADHD afterall!  That's a different topic for another blog post.

I work in Marketing.  I spend my days evaluating and criticizing ads on Facebook and Instagram.  I get paid to spend 8 hours a day on Facebook 5 days a week.  Cool right?  I can't tell you how I got a job with Facebook because even to me that is a mystery.  No fancy degree here.  No prestigious Agency experience.

Back to the subject!  I decided I was finally going to relent to all the customer request to just work for them.  And I start my own digital media firm.  It's a side gig.  It's a lot like a side chick,
but instead of spending money I make money instead of spending it.  Yes, make money instead of spending it.  Also called, hey remember that website you started working on a year ago?????  Oh, that thing.  Well now is the time to do something with it!!!!

Turns out I am great with starting a project.  But what happens when you start your own business at the same time as you are learning a new role at your day job, while starting all that book-keeping, web designing, email marketing, social mediaing, ad creation, client consulting stuff?  Don't forget all that other stuff like being a mom, a student, a volunteer, sole income, taxi and single/horny woman.

Well, if you have ADHD, you probably don't have a clue what happens. But if you don't you already know how this story is going to end.  Then again I may end up surprising us all.........
