A Tribe Called Watermelon

Standard

Sometimes I wonder why Marketing is my career purpose. I do love the work, but I can’t deny that my desire for perfection often gets in the way of what’s practical. There lies the rub! Over the past few days I partnered with other marketing professionals from around the country to learn, grow and share best practices. The experiences changed us all.

A tribe we dubbed “Watermelon” was born from an idea that when we need each other, we’d use the code word: “Watermelon”. And whether we work together for weeks or years, it’s great to remember that work is just a catalyst to life. Here’s to my newest #friendsofTenaciousM!!

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. (Albert Einstein,scientist)

Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for business people looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way. (Twyla Tharp, dancer/choreographer)

Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity. (T. S. Eliot, playwright)
