Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
When I was 15, one of my first jobs was designing t-shirts. In college, I majored in theatre, comedy, and playwriting.
When I left college, I went into fashion design and apparel production and I had a great career there.
I got married, walked away from my career, and had a family. I was a stay at home mom for 8-9 years. On the side, I did consulting work in the apparel industry.
During that time, I started a blog called the Glamorous Life Association. Unlike the other mom blogs, mine was a humorous and sarcastic take on it.
A very large agency took notice of me and my writing skills, so they hired me. I shifted from being a blogging mom to being an agency person.
I began working for large agencies, even commuting to New York from California. I couldn’t do that without my husband's support and my kids being okay with it.
Eventually, I decided to start my own agency, MM+CO.

Day to Day

My days are very complex. I get 300 emails a day, and most of my days are pre-booked with meetings and calls from 8 AM to 8 PM. A typical conversation might be helping a client coordinate an event, doing calls to wrangle a celebrity, or working with my employees to put that event together. Maybe I’m talking to a tech company about online programmatic advertising for our clients, or maybe meeting with a publication because they want a thought leader. I work with many clients in many industries.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

My favorite quote is "The harder you work, the luckier you get." Hard work is really underrated. Working hard at something and achieving success can be just as valuable and important as work/life balance. Learn to love working and being productive.

From Society in General:

"You have to pick something. You need to learn to speciailize, there's no need for generalists."
