Growing The Team

On April 15, 2009, in Personal Revelations, by Adelard

Busy The last couple of days have been very exciting. I’m in the final stages of the Costa Rica Movie project, but more importantly I’m in the mist of building up a great online marketing company.

We’ve hired an All Star Business Development Director, A VP of Latin America, and have 3 addition sales guys. We’ve grown from 3, to a powerful team of 10 people relatively quickly.

I think the biggest advantage that we have is our knowledge of not online Internet marketing, but marketing metrics, population consensus, and business know how.

We have an awesome Data Analysts who used to work with American Express, Ingram Micro, and Humana to name a few companies. He’s able to crunch the numbers and give us the break down detail of if taking on this project makes sense.

Starting in May, thanks to our VP of Latin America, we’re opening up an office in Bolivia!!! We’ll be going down there soon to take a look at everything, and make sure everything runs smoothly. That’s freaking exciting, though.

Our Business Development Director has already begun opening up huge doors for us. If all goes well we are potentially going to be working on several digital media project for Dunkin Donuts, Red Lobster, Subway, Burger King, and PG. Had a great meeting on Tuesday at the Biltmore Hotel about that offer. Later on in the day, we had a conference call with P. Diddy’s Marketing team, so potentially we are close to closing that deal.

Later that day, my business partner and me went to Lucky Strikes to finish off the day, and talk about the future of the company. Most delicious Burger I’ve had in a long time. I’ll never forget the hostess though, a hot chick with a hotter yellow dress on, she was smoking. I’ll definitely be going back there again…

Thinks are looking really great. It’s weird, when you go after your dreams and goals, if you have enough skills and determination, nothing can stop you.

In the next couple of weeks, it’s crunch time, we gotta close out this month’s deals, finish up all the sales materials, and get the Bolivia office up and running, and then on top of that, I gotta get all these projects done. Looks like I’m going to be up at night for the next several weeks.
