Thank Goodness The LPGA Didn’t Call.
As you may have guessed – I am an avid golfer. So much so that many of my colleagues have encouraged me over the years to go find a marketing job in the golf industry. “You’d be perfect!” was a common thing I’d hear. “You love marketing. You love golf. You fancy yourself above average in both. It’s a real no-brainer.”
But for some reason I didn’t want my personal passion to be my work passion – if that makes any sense. Probably because if my golf game went to hell and I began to hate the game I now love, I’d also start to hate my job and then I’d be left with nothing!
During the course of my 30-year career in marketing, I’ve always tried to make sure I was in the right seat with the right company with the right team who knew that I was with them for the long haul. “This is exactly what I want to be doing,” I’ve been known to say, “unless the LPGA calls, of course”.
Well, the LPGA still hasn’t called with an offer for me to play on the tour – so I had to find another work gig that I could be passionate about. Which brings me to Creatis. As a long-time client and board member, I have gotten a chance to see first-hand how Creatis helps marketing teams get stuff done. I am thrilled to combine my love of marketing with my desire to help others, and am honored to now call Creatis my work home. This is exactly what I want to be doing.
Unless I do get that call from the LPGA, of course.
