SO... I have spent the better part of my youth going down a road which lead to a job that was not challenging, did not make good money, and most importantly wasn't making ME happy. I decided I needed a change and wanted to do something that would be interesting, challenging, and exciting. Most people want to make money, ( So do I) and what I come to realize is that you can't put a dollar amount on your own self worth. Accepting a yearly salary will only limit yourself no matter how hard you work. So I decided the marketing field is where I really truly belong. My background is mainly in the criminal justice field but I have dabbed into quite a few labor and office jobs that were entry level. I graduated college with a BS about 2 years ago and now I am starting an MBA degree here shortly. I am leaning on a concentration in marketing. I understand that some would say a MBA is a waste of money but because I didn't get a true BS education in the field I think it will benefit me in regards to learning the basics on how the game works. So I am accepting any and all advice. I want to learn by educating myself with real people that have experience in this field. Also for all of you veterans marketers, the youth truly appreciate the sharing of knowledge and direction!!!!
